Your Job

You will investigate the cellular mechanisms and consequences of the interactions of protein aggregates with other cellular proteins.

You will work in the context of a bigger project on the specificity of protein aggregation. We have developed a structural hypothesis based on the concept of co-aggregation and have a pipeline in place to identify potential interacting proteins using bioinformatics, biophysical methods and cellular screening approaches.


  • PhD in the cell biology of protein aggregation (molecular, cellular, small animal models) or related disciplines
  • Strong interest in protein aggregation and its role in disease.
  • A solid publication record with first-author research publication(s) in peer-reviewed international journals
  • Strong expertise in cloning, genome editing, viral expression
  • Strong experience with microscopy and investigating cellular mechanisms
  • Highly motivated, enthusiastic, critical and creative
  • The ability to work in a multidisciplinary team is a must
  • Prior experience with high content analysis is a plus
  • We offer

  • A versatile and challenging job
  • A vibrant, world-class research environment operating at an international level
  • Access to the resources of two host institutions : , an excellence-based research institute , one of Europe’s leading research universities
  • State of the art
  • A dedicated to broaden your expertise and enhance your skillset
  • A competitive compensation package based on expertise and experience
  • Financial support for at least 1 year. The successful candidate is encouraged to obtain a personal fellowship (Marie-Curie, HFSP, EMBO, or national funding organizations)
  • Starting Date : as soon as possible
