ESPCI Paris
ESPCI Paris is a major institution of higher education (a French "Grande École d’ingénieurs"), an internationally renowned research center (6 Nobel Prizes), and a fertile ground of innovation for industry (3 start-ups created/year). ESPCI is a highly multidisciplinary environment with teaching and research in physics, chemistry and biology.

Prof. Andrew Griffiths’ Lab
The research activities of the Laboratory of Biochemistry at ESPCI Paris, directed by Prof. Andrew GRIFFITHS, are based around droplet-based microfluidics, a powerful new ultrahigh-throughput system in which reaction volumes can be miniaturized by up to a million-fold compared to conventional assays in microtitre plates. This opens up exciting prospects for the development of extremely innovative systems with many applications in the Life Sciences. The successful candidate will join a highly multidisciplinary team, with experience spanning biology, chemistry and physics.

Project
The candidate will work on the project related to evolution of life and more precisely the RNA network. It is a highly interdisciplinary project as it will involve new techniques in microfluidics and biochemistry. The candidate would join an expanding team (3 to 5 researchers, post-docs, engineers) developing the droplet-based microfluidic technology and its applications.

Requirements
We are seeking a highly motivated Post-Doc with strong experience in biochemistry or related field. The Post-Doc should be interested in learning how to use microfluidic systems.

Flexibility, autonomy, the ability to work in a highly multidisciplinary team and good interpersonal skills are essential.

Duration : 1 year
