Postdoc position: Modeling evolution of bacteria in the gut (Laboratoire Jean Perrin, Sorbonne Université, Paris)

31/10/19

Context and project:

The gut harbors a complex microbiota whose impact on our health is currently being discovered. In particular, it can constitute a reservoir of antibiotic resistance, both in humans and in farm animals. Indeed, 99% of the bacteria we carry are in our gut. When we take an antibiotic treatment, it can promote the evolution of antibiotic resistance in these bacteria. It is therefore crucial to understand how microbial evolution unfolds in the gut. In particular, the gut is not a well-mixed environment, and the transport of bacteria and their resulting spatial population structure likely has a strong impact on their evolution. We aim to progress towards a better understanding of bacterial evolution in the gut by developing models of microbial evolution on graphs, and by taking into account gut flow and gradients, e.g. of nutrients or drugs. The recruited postdoc will construct theoretical models of structured populations, combining analytical calculations and numerical simulations.

Practical information:

The postdoc position is funded for one year and should start in January 2020 at the latest. The recruited postdoc will be co-advised by Claude Loverdo and Anne-Florence Bitbol. The project will be performed in the theory group of Laboratoire Jean Perrin (http://www.labos.upmc.fr/ljp), a dynamical and strongly interdisciplinary scientific environment, where all researchers work at the interface between physics and biology. Laboratoire Jean Perrin is hosted by Sorbonne Université, on the Jussieu campus, right at the center of Paris.

How to apply:

The candidate should have a PhD (or have it completed before the start of the position) in a relevant field, and a strong experience in modeling. To apply, please send a CV and a cover letter describing your interests and previous work to claude.loverdo@sorbonne-universite.fr and anne-florence.bitbol@sorbonne-universite.fr

Open positions for postdocs, PhD students and research assistants, Evolutionary genetics of development, Braendle lab, Institute of Biology Valrose, Nice

23/07/19

We currently have several positions available in the context of two research projects focusing on the evolution of development in nematodes. For more information on our lab, research interests and host institute, see www.braendlelab.net <http://www.braendlelab.net/>

Project 1. Evolutionary genetics and experimental evolution of development

This project, in collaboration with Henrique Teotonio (Institut de Biologie, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, aims to characterize the effects of different breeding systems on the evolution of C. elegans hermaphrodite germline development. The key objectives are (1) to perform experimental evolution under different sex ratios of males, females and hermaphrodites; (2) to characterize the genetic basis of hermaphrodite germline traits through genetic transformation methods and a genome-wide association study; and (3) to determine how natural selection at candidate loci depends on hermaphrodite germline developmental evolution.

Starting date: flexible

For relevant background information see:

Project 2. The role of developmental genetic architecture in shaping evolutionary trends

This project, in collaboration with Marie-Anne Félix (Institut de Biologie, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, will investigate how developmental architecture may limit or bias the phenotypic spectrum obtained after random mutation. Whether such biases in the production of phenotypic variation may influence evolutionary trends is poorly understood. Here we address this problem using random mutation lines to explore whether differential mutational sensitivity of developmental cell fates can explain divergent evolutionary patterns in the fates of different homologous vulval precursor cells in two clades of nematodes. This project will (1) quantify mutability of these cell fates in wild isolates of Caenorhabditis and Oscheius, (2) connect these experimental data with patterns of evolutionary variation in these traits in the two genera, and (3) characterize the developmental genetic basis for this differential mutability. The results will be among the first to causally connect mutability, developmental biology and evolutionary trends. This approach is unique as it integrates molecular and evolutionary genetic analysis at the single-cell level.

For relevant background information see:

PhD candidates are expected to have a master’s degree in evolutionary biology and an understanding of the fundamental problems of quantitative genetics, population genetics and developmental genetics, including QTL and GWAS mapping. Candidates with experience in computer programming, experimental evolution, developmental phenotyping and statistical analysis of large data sets are preferred.

To apply, send a CV, a letter of motivation, and the contact information for two referees as a single PDF file to and Christian Braendle . Informal inquiries are welcome.

Two year position on Evolution of protein interactions involved in epithelial building and patterning

The emergence of epithelial layers is one of the key innovations characterizing the Metazoan lineage. The criteria defining an animal epithelium (basement membrane, junctions, cell polarity) were based on the observation of bilaterian models only, pushing aside the structural diversity of epithelia found in non-bilaterian lineages (Porifera, Ctenophora, Placozoa and Cnidaria). To decipher the minimal and ancestral toolkit of animal epithelia and trace back how and when the bilaterian epithelial features emerged, computational and experimental comparative analyzes on non-bilaterian animals are needed. This project aims at determining the proteins involved in the junctions of homoscleromorph sponges, the only sponge class where adherent-like actin-rich junctions were described as adherence junctions (AJ): this work will enable to test the homology of these structures with bilaterian AJs.
