   A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Dr. Carine  
Tisne at the Laboratory of Biological Crystallography and NMR of the  
University Paris Descartes, jointly with the group of Dr. Ciaran  
Condon at the Laboratory of Microbial Gene Expression (CNRS UPR9073)  
of the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique. We are studying the  
structure, function and folding of RNA and their complexes using NMR  
spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography, together with complementary  
biophysical methods. The postdoctoral research project focusses on the  
processing of the 5’ and 3’ ends of 5S rRNA in Gram-positive bacteria  
using solution NMR and X-ray crystallography as the main techniques.  
An integral part of our projects is the use and development of  
state-of-the-art preparative, biochemical and NMR techniques.


   Interested candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Biochemistry,  
Biophysics or Structural Biology. Expertise in NMR spectroscopy and/or  
X-ray crystallography is mandatory. The successful candidate should be  
highly motivated, creative and capable of independent research in a  
two-team environment (10 minute walk between labs).

   The position is for a two-year term contract (one year in each  
team). We offer an exciting and enthusiastic work environment together  
with a stimulating location at the center of Paris (close to “Jardin  
du Luxembourg”). Facilities for structural biology include 600 MHz  
Bruker spectrometer equipped with cryoprobe. A new 700 MHz  
spectrometer will be installed in 2014. We also have access to  
high-field NMR spectrometers through the French TGIR and regular  
access to synchroton beamtime at either the ESRF or SOLEIL as Beam  
Time Allocation Group member. The ideal start date for the position  
would be October 2013.


   Applications and informal queries about the labs and research  
projects should be directed by email to Carine Tisne  
(carine.tisne at parisdescartes.fr) or Ciaran Condon (condon at ibpc.fr[1]).  
Applications must include a letter of motivation summarizing current  
and future research interests, a CV, list of publications and letters  
of recommendation from at least two references.
