PhDPosition : Deciphering the code for nuclear control over gene
expression in chloroplasts and mitochondria

Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique , Sorbonne Université, Paris,

We are seeking a highly motivated Ph.D. candidate to pursue a thesis on
the mechanisms of protein-RNA recognition involved in nuclear control
of the gene expression of eukaryotic organelles. In photosynthetic
eukaryotes, this control circuitry plays an essential role in the
molecular adaptation of the chloroplast to environmental changes. The
project is at the interface between comparative genomics and molecular
biophysics, and the candidate will be expected to contribute both to
studies of co-evolution of regulatory proteins and their mRNA targets as
well as to molecular dynamics simulations and free-energy calculations
on these same macromolecules. The thesis, carried out at the IBPC, will
be co-directed by Ingrid Lafontaine (Laboratory of Chloroplast Biology
and the Light Perception in Microalgae, UMR7141 CNRS-SU) and by Charles
Robert (Laboratory of Theoretical Biochemistry, UPR9080, CNRS).

The candidate should have solid background in physical-chemistry,
programming, and statistical analysis and be interested in fundamental
mechanisms of genome evolution.  This position is financed by the CNRS
via a 80|Prime doctoral contract (3 years), and provides a monthly
salary  of 2135 euros before taxes and charges.  The doctoral student
must enroll in the Complexité du Vivant doctoral school at Sorbonne
University starting in Autumn 2019.

Candidates should address a detailed CV and university transcripts
(Undergraduate and Master’s degree), as well as two references,
to Ingrid Lafontaine ( and Charles Robert
( before 25 april 2019.
