PhD fellowship at ENS – PSL (Paris, France) on the role of protein disorder in the repair of DNA double-strand breaks

Dear colleagues,
A three-year PhD fellowship is available to work in our group at Ecole
Normale Supérieure - PSL.
The PhD project will be focused on the investigation of the disordered
regions of a series of proteins involved in NHEJ and its regulation (see
accepted in principle at Nature Struct. Mol. Biol.). We will use
biochemical methods, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and
fluorescence microscopy. The PhD student will be part of a dynamic
consortium, led by Mauro Modesti, Felix Rico, Sophie Brasselet (all at
Aix-Marseille University), Fabien Ferrage (ENS - PSL), and Jean-Baptiste
Charbonnier (CEA).
The project will be supervised by Fabien Ferrage and Ludovic Carlier at
the Department of Chemistry of the Ecole Normale Superieure PSL, Paris.
The group offers a unique environment where the research activity on
magnetic resonance, includes hardware developments for liquid-state and
solid-state NMR, MRI and hyperpolarization, with many applications to a
wide range of biomolecular systems. The laboratory is equipped with a
wet lab for protein sample preparation as well as high-field NMR
spectrometers currently ranging from 400 to 800 MHz (a 900 MHz system
will be added during the PhD project).
The Ecole Normale Superieure is ideally located at the scientific and
historic heart of Paris.
Starting date: October 1st 2024
Application deadline: April 25 2024
