Postdoc positions at Princeton
Princeton University Dear colleagues,
I hope you are well.
I’m recruiting 2 postdocs on grant-funded positions to study the pyrenoid, a mysterious phase-separated organelle that mediates a third of global CO2 fixation and that we aim to engineer into crops to dramatically increase yields. We have spearheaded the molecular characterization of the pyrenoid, defined its protein composition, discovered that it is a liquid-like organelle, and characterized the structure and biogenesis of one of its three sub-compartments, the matrix.
Projects are available in a broad range of areas, including the following:
- Membrane tubules feed the pyrenoid with concentrated CO2. How are these structures made, and how do they work? - How are the pyrenoid's three sub-compartments - the matrix, the tubules, and the starch sheath - assembled together? - Engineer a functional pyrenoid into a pyrenoid-less alga as a key first step toward its functional reconstitution in land plants. - Develop cutting-edge omics tools to advance our understanding of thousands of poorly-characterized genes in photosynthetic organisms. - Develop oceanic algae for atmospheric CO2 sequestration.
Our lab has a strong track record of launching postdocs onto independent careers in academia and industry. For more information, please see jonikaslab.princeton.edu
To apply: Please send to email@example.com a CV with contact information for three references and a cover letter addressing the questions: 1) What questions are you most excited about? 2) How would working on them help launch you onto your future career goals? and 3) How do you see your skills and experience synergizing with the lab?
A 2-year post-doc position is available at IBPC in Paris, France in the Falciatore lab “Chloroplast Biology and Light Sensing in microalgae” to work on aspects related to Rubisco gene expression and assembly in Chlamydomonas in the framework of a coFund Fellowship Program attributed to the IBPC-affiliated Laboratory of Excellence (Labex) Dynamo. For those of you who might be interested, please visit Oliver Caspari’s poster (608D), or get in touch with Francis-André Wollman, who will be on-site during the Chlamy meeting. You can also visit the post-doc announcement soon on the Dynamo Labex webpage: http://labexdynamo.ibpc.fr/fp-dynamo-paris/, or express your interest to me, who will attend the conference remotely (Katia.Wostrikoff@ibpc.fr).
Please be aware that applicants must not have worked in France for more than 12 months within the past three years.
We hope to hear from you soon!

The PRL engages in interdisciplinary research broadly aimed at improving the mechanistic understanding of photosynthetic organisms, as well as efforts to improve photosynthetic performance and productivity. PRL faculty aspire to contribute to interdisciplinary questions that are broader than those that can be addressed by a single research team, including but not limited to: “How do plants respond across dynamic environments, including changes in global climate?”; “How are photosynthetic processes coordinated over multiple scales (e.g., subcompartments, cells, tissues) to efficiently allocate resources for organism growth and development?”; and, “How can forward-looking bioengineering strategies be leveraged to elucidate fundamental mechanistic principles, to enhance plant performance, and enable sustainable technologies?” More information on the breadth of the PRL mission is available at https://prl.natsci.msu.edu/research-tech/research-projects/.
The PRL is a highly collaborative environment for conducting creative and rigorous research. Our ideal future colleague will expand the expertise at the PRL through their leadership of an independent research program contributing to the understanding of the biology of photosynthetic organisms - and which may extend more broadly beyond photosynthetic organisms. We seek a colleague who will engage in our tradition of collaborative, interdisciplinary research, participate in ongoing PRL-wide research supported by the DOE, and contribute their unique perspective to PRL’s community. PRL faculty have twelve-month, continuing appointments and are full members of the MSU tenure-stream faculty and jointly appointed in an academic department.
Carnegie Institution for Science I am recruiting a lab technician to start a new lab at the Carnegie Institution of Science at Stanford (USA). Our lab will be exploring how algal photosynthesis acclimates to environmental fluctuations like light, CO2 or temperature. For more information, visit our website or contact me directly.
Carnegie Institution of Science We are looking for a postdoc to work on the acclimation of photosynthesis to light fluctuations. For more informations, fell free to contact me directly
Postdoc position at CRAG, Barcelona, Spain
CRAG Dear Chlamydomonas friends, We have a two-year postdoctoral position soon opening in the “Environmental control of plant and algae growth” laboratory at CRAG in Barcelona, Spain. The fellowship is funded by a Marie Sklodowska-Curie program, designed to foster multidisciplinary research with a focus on career advancement. If you would like to join our team, please find me on the island and I will be happy to discuss the project, or contact me for more information on Whova or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Institute of Plant Biochemistry and Photosynthesis (IBVF-CSIC) The project will be focused on the study of autophagy and TOR signaling in the new extremophilic microalga Chlamydomonas urium isolated by our group in the Rio Tinto. Starting date: January 2022
