Postdoctoral Position – Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions

The team “Functional genomics of phytopathogenic fungi'' is glad to open a postdoctoral position in Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactionslocated. This position is funded by Bayer Crop Science.

The project is entitled “deciphering the interaction between a fungal pathogen and a host plant that leads to mutual exchange of extracellular vesicles (EVs)”. The project is mainly based on biochemical and bioinformatics approaches, with a focus on protein-protein interaction mapping.


The keys tasks are :

  • Mapping of the Botrytis cinerea and the plant EV protein composition and interaction network in different genetic backgrounds.
  • Scientific planning, evaluation, interpretation and presentation of experimental studies.
  • Collaboration across various departments and organizations.
  • Effective communication with project stakeholders
  • Leadership to secure progress presentation and alignment on primary and contingency plans.
  • Participation to the training and supervision of students.


  • Ph.D. in plant microbe interactions, molecular plant biology or a related field
  • Demonstrated experience with plant molecular biology and plant biochemistry is required
  • Strong knowledge in plant-microbe interactions. An experience with Botrytis/Arabidopsis pathosystem is an advantage
  • Experience in bioinformatics in the field of protein-protein interaction mapping is an advantage
  • Experience in Arabidopsis thaliana stable transformation, and confocal fluorescence microscopy is an advantage
  • Excellent skills in scientific analysis and design, independent working and time management, as well as in oral and written presentation
  • Strong team player and capable to work independently
  • Proficient verbal/written communication and presentation skills
  • Fluent in English. A basic knowledge of French is helpful but not required


  • Duration: 18 months
  • Location: Lyon La Dargoire
  • Starting date: June 2021
