An engineer/technician position is available on the Marseille-Luminy campus to work on tumorigenesis using the chick embryo as a model organism. The candidate will work in the context of a collaborative project between the lab of Dr Cédric Maurange and Dr Marie- Claire Delfini at the Institute for Developmental Biology of Marseille (IBDM).
Funding is provided by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) for 12 months.
We are seeking a highly-motivated candidate with some practical experience in molecular biology. A previous experience with chick embryos is desirable but not mandatory as the candidate will have the possibility to be trained.
The engineer/technician will generate DNA constructs to perform gain and loss of function experiments in the chick embryo via electroporation in order to initiate tumorigenesis. She/he will perform immunostainings or in-situ hybridization and use confocal microscopy to document the experiments.
Engineer or technician level will be recognized according to education (Bachelor +2-4 e. g. IUT, BTS, Diploma, Master).
The position is available starting from February/March 2019.
A letter of motivation, a CV and the name(s) of one or two referees should be sent to Cédric Maurange and Marie-Claire Delfini before 05/12/2018 : firstname.lastname@example.org ; email@example.com
