Post-doc position in Molecular Biology / Directed enzyme evolution

ESPCI Paris

ESPCI Paris is a major institution of higher education (a French "Grande École d’ingénieurs"), an internationally renowned research center (6 Nobel Prizes), and a fertile ground of innovation for industry (3 start-ups created/year). ESPCI is a highly multidisciplinary environment with teaching and research in physics, chemistry and biology.

Prof. Andrew Griffiths’ Lab

The research activities of the Laboratory of Biochemistry at ESPCI Paris, directed by Prof. Andrew GRIFFITHS, are based around droplet-based microfluidics, a powerful new ultrahigh-throughput system in which reaction volumes can be miniaturized by up to a million-fold compared to conventional assays in microtitre plates. This opens up exciting prospects for the development of extremely innovative systems with many applications in the Life Sciences. The successful candidate will join a highly multidisciplinary team, with experience spanning biology, chemistry and physics.

Requirements

We are seeking a highly motivated post-doc to work on directed evolution of polymerases using droplet-based microfluidics and next generation sequencing. Requirements are a PhD in molecular biology or related fields and interest in learning how to use microfluidics systems.

Flexibility, autonomy, the ability to work in a highly multidisciplinary team and good interpersonal skills are essential.
