    CONTEXTE

    We are looking for you that want to establish a career within Plant biochemistry and

    molecular biology with a strong focus on terpenoid biochemistry. At Jean Monnet

    University, Saint Étienne, France you will be able to break new grounds within Plant

    Biochemistry and join a research project that go beyond current knowledge within plant

    biochemistry.

    We want to explore how early divergent land plants like liverworts produce fragrance

    molecules, and why they do this. Using contemporary DNA sequencing technology,

    and well-established genetic engineering of the plants Physcomitrium patens and

    Nicotiana benthamiana we will perform biochemical characterization of the fragrance

    enzymes from the liverwort Frullania tamariscii.

    The two model plants are often used to study plant enzymes, and will serve as a good

    starting point for these studies. The fragrances of F. tamariscii has previously been

    used in perfurmes, and with this new research project this might become relevant

    again. As part of the project, funded by the Élan Recherche 2022 program at Jean

    Monnet University, we will explore this and other liverworts for new potential fragrance

    molecules.

    MISSIONS et POSITION DU POSTE

    Under the hierarchical and functional authority of Professor Henrik Toft Simonsen, the

    person recruited will be responsible for running the research project on fragrances of

    F. tamariscii.

    ACTIVITES

    1-Expertise méthodologique et technique

    Your overall focus will be to perform enzyme biochemical characterization with special

    focus on the sesquiterpenoid tamariscol and its biosynthesis. You will strengthen the

    research groups ability to perform fast enzyme characterization of multiple enzymes,

    and also enable the use of fast analytical methods like head-space and SPME GC-

    MS. You will work closely together with colleagues in the Laboratory of Plant

    Biotechnologies applied to aromatic and medicinal plants (LBVPAM, Saint Étienne,

    France). Your primary tasks will be to be perform molecular biology and biochemical

    assays with the focus on tamariscol biosynthesis.

    2-Pilotage de projets

    Secondly you will also participate in the supervision of Master and Bachelor students

    affiliated to you project, and in general help with the maintenance of our laboratory.

    3-Animation scientifique et valorisation

    Part of the job is also to promote research within fragrances, both through public

    outreach and scientific papers. During the course of the Post Soc we wish to make a

    small promotional video along with a few other projects, thus participation in this is also

    part of the job.

    COMPETENCES ET CONNAISSANCES PROFESSIONNELLES

    We are looking for a talented and creative new team member. The successful

    candidate holds a PhD degree within Plant molecular biology and biochemistry and

    have a proven track record of engineering both Physcomitrium and Nicotiana. The

    candidate should be highly motivated, have a strong interest in plant biochemistry, and

    demonstrated expertise in plant molecular biology, plant metabolite engineering, plant

    biochemistry and metabolomics. Previous substantial experience with molecular

    techniques and Physcomitrium patens or Nicotiana benthamiana as a model system

    is preferred.

    Communications and presentations at international conferences, as well as research

    experience in a country different from the country of origin are also considered assets.

    Experience in supervision of Master and Bachelor students is another plus.

    We offer

    We offer a creative and stimulating international scientific environment, and access to

    state-of-the-art technologies. LBVPam is a leading laboratory in plant fragrance

    biochemistry and is globally recognized for the excellence of our research, education,

    innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an

    international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment

    characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility
