3 years Post-Doc Position in Cell Biology E. Bayer’s group (Bordeaux, FR) & M-C. Caillaud’s group (Lyon, FR) Establishment of the plasmodesmata mediated cell-to-cell communication during cell division

3 years Post-Doc position supported by ANR funding is available for a joined project between E. Bayer’s team in the Laboratory of Membrane biogenesis LBM (Bordeaux,
France) & M-C. Caillaud’s group at the Reproductive and Plant Development Laboratory RDP (Lyon, France),


We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a good publication track-record and a strong commitment to research, to work at the interface between the two labs. Prior expertise in cell biology is definitely a plus. Excellent English communication skills are expected.


The LBM (Bordeaux), is a world-wide recognized institute for its expertise in plant membrane biology is located in the plant science campus, with access to cutting edge high-resolution microscopy, proteomic, and lipidomic platforms. Bordeaux is a easy going and enjoyable city, only 1h away from marvellous sand beaches. The RDP (Lyon) located at the ENS Lyon is among the world leading centers working on plant development, with expertise in molecular biology and imaging, it increasingly develops systems and quantitative biology to simulate the behavior of cells and tissues. Lyon is a vibrant city, 2h from the Alps, Paris or the Mediterranean sea.
