The Signalling in Malaria Parasites group headed by Professor Mathieu Brochet within the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Medicine is seeking highly skilled and motivated candidates for a postdoctoral position. Our laboratory is interested in understanding how signalling regulates the development of malaria parasites during asexual replication in erythrocytes and early transmission to the mosquito.

To address our aims, we combine a wide panel of approaches including experimental genetics, chemical biology, biochemistry, live imaging, and quantitative proteomics.

We offer excellent support, access to state-of-the art facilities and an interactive and collaborative research environment.

Description

The successful candidate will have the possibility, among other options, to lead a project aiming at unravelling the basis of cell cycle regulation in multiple Plasmodium stages and species. For more details, please contact Mathieu.Brochet unige.ch .

Please send one PDF document including a motivation letter, CV, publication list and contact information for at least two referees to Mathieu.Brochet unige.ch .

This will be a rolling advert and applications will be considered and reviewed on an on-going basis.

Requirements

  • PhD in Biology.
  • Significant research experience in malaria biology or a related relevant area.
  • Strong publication record as first author in peer-reviewed journals.
  • Experience in leading research projects and supervising graduate/undergraduate students.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
  • Excellent organization and record keeping skills.
  • Very good oral/written communication and interpersonal skills.
