The group of Prof. Alexis Jourdain at the University of Lausanne invites applications for a postdoc position. Our laboratory is at the interface of gene expression, systems biology and metabolism to study mitochondria and their roles in energy metabolism. Several projects are available in the laboratory and use similar approaches to address questions related to:
- Mitochondrial remodeling during cellular differentiation (immune cells, muscle)
- Mitochondrial gene expression and mitochondrial RNA granules, mitochondrial myopathies
- Nucleotide catabolism for energy production (“uridinolysis”)
We are a dynamic team of international researchers composed of 2 postdocs, 2 PhD students, 1 master student and 2 technicians. The expertise present at the Department of Immunobiology and the University of Lausanne, as well as our ongoing collaborations with laboratories at the University of Geneva, CHUV and EPFL offers an ideal place for a postdoc to thrive. The spoken language in the team and the department is English.
Learning opportunities: genetic screening (CRISPR/Cas9-, ORFeome-based), genetic engineering, molecular biology, quantitative proteomics, metabolomics, confocal and super-resolution microscopy.
