IN BIO-ORGANIC CHEMISTRY
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research
Associate to investigate the formation together with
the chemical and biochemical properties of DNA clustered
base lesions induced by oxidative processes. The research
will involve the synthesis, the characterization and
the measurement of the damaged nucleoside or oligonucleotide
together with assessment of biological features (repair,
replication,…) of the latter substrates, using a variety
of biophysical (UV and IR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry,
NMR, chromatography,…) and biochemical (electrophoresis,
enzymatic processing, sequencing,…) techniques.
with a relevant PhD in Chemistry or Biochemistry, a
strong background in bio-organic chemistry and biochemistry
of nucleic acids and a desire to work in a multidisciplinary
environment could apply. The net salary will be within
the range of 24000 to 26000 euros per annum, depending
on the qualification and experience. The position, integrated
in a European Marie Curie Research Training Network
(CLUSTOXDNA RTN / 2004-07) is only available for European
candidates at the exception of French citizen. This
is a 1-year contract with the possibility of extension
up to 18 months, starting on Spring 2005.
Applications, including a full CV, a motivation letter
and the names of 2 referees who can be contacted prior
interview, should be send to: Dr Jean Cadet, CEA Grenoble
- Laboratoire des Lesions des Acides Nucleiques, SCIB-DRFMC,
17, rue des Martyrs, 38054 Grenoble Cedex 9, France.
