 postdoc position in the Schnorrer lab

You:
You are curiosity-driven, fascinated by dynamic processes;
You are experienced in live imaging (FRAP, FLIM, laser-cutting);
You enjoy independent scientific planning;

We:
We are located at Institute of Developmental Biology of Marseille (IBDM), an interdisciplinary research center with a strong focus on quantitative in vivo biology and biophysics;
We study the morphogenesis of muscle with a particular interest in the contractile apparatus, sarcomeres and myofibrils;
We combine systematic fly genetics with in vivo imaging;

Goal:
This project aims to understand the dynamics of sarcomere assembly during muscle development;
We know that early sarcomeres are irregular structures that mature within 2 days to pseudo-crystalline molecular machines;
We have generated a collection of endogenously tagged sarcomeric proteins, whose differential recruitment and turn-over should inform us about the assembly dynamics of these machines;
