A post-doc position is open in the Dynamics and structure of lipid bodies group
A post-doc position for 2 years starting in January 2013 is available in the Dynamics and structure of lipid bodies group at Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin, at INRA, Versailles (France). IJPB (more than 200 permanent workers) is one of the leading laboratories in the field of plant molecular and cell biology and biotechnology.
This post-doc position is in the frame of the ProBio3 project. The deal of ProBio3 is to develop a new promising pathway to produce sustainable bio jet fuel: the microbial conversion on specific fatty acids of carbon substrates from renewable non food resources and industrial by-products. The major objectives of ProBio3 project will focuse on scientific and technological bottlenecks of the microbial pathway. To reach the objectives, 8 academic and 8 industrial partners associate their interdisciplinary competences from Life Sciences to Process Engineering including Economic, Social and Human Sciences.
order to develop new and robust industrial microorganisms for biofuel
production, it is necessary to control intracellular lipid profile and
to optimise lipid accumulation. Enzymes from the neutral lipid biosynthetic
pathway are targets of interest for this purpose. The post-doc projet
focuses on structural and functional analysis of enzymes involved in plant
and yeast neutral lipid metabolism from the acyl transferase and desaturase
families. The ultimate goal is to obtain high resolution structures helpful
for rational structure-based improvement for enzymes.
