Postdoctoral Position in Evolutionary & Functional Genomics of Antibiotic Resistance

Postdoctoral Position in Evolutionary & Functional Genomics of Antibiotic Resistance

Institut Pasteur

Paris, France

A postdoc position for a motivated and talented postdoctoral researcher is available in the Microbial Evolutionary Genomics unit (head: Eduardo Rocha) of the Pasteur Institute, Paris, France. Our lab has been at the forefront of the study of genome evolution and mobile genetic elements (MGE) using comparative genomics and now aims at developing original work on the evolution and spread of antibiotic resistance. This position is funded by the Inception program, the Institut Pasteur and the Fondation Recherche Médicale.

Topic

The project aims at identifying and characterizing novel determinants of antibiotic resistance in enterobacteria (and placing them in meaningful evolutionary contexts). It will be done in tight collaboration with experimental biologists making functional studies (labs Mazel, Glaser, Barras at Pasteur) and biomathematicians developing novel analytic methods (Achaz, Lambert at Collège de France). The project involves the use of genomic, functional, and epidemiological data.

Representative publications: Oliveira, Nature Comm, 17; Cury, MBE, 18; Rendueles, PLoS Gen, 17; Duval, PNAS, 18; Clerissi, Nature Comm, 18.

Profiles

Young researchers with recent PhDs in domains relating to bacterial evolution and genomics with some computational or quantitative background, including programming skills (shell, R, and/or Python), and experience in large-scale sequence analysis. A taste for collaborations and the ability to discuss with a variety of researchers are strictly necessary.
