Description of the position:
The incumbent will work as part of an interdisciplinary research team whose objective is to characterize the biodiversity and ecology of viruses infecting marine microbial eukaryotes and to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of infection. The first two tasks entrusted to the young researcher will be (i) to implement an innovative approach combining FISH/FACS/Minimetagenomics to ensure the isolation and characterization of viruses infecting regional strains of Picochlorum. (ii) He/she will also conduct a transcriptomic study of the infection of several diatom strains by their respective RNA viruses. More information available on request.
The work location is M.I.O Lab.
