  • Offer Starting Date: 01/12/2022
  • This position is entirely dedicated to the "HALO-CAT" project, funded by the National Research Agency (https: // and will consist of producing, purifying, analyzing and identifying natural halogenated molecules using metabolomics tools (chemometrics, molecular networks , etc.) for their detection, conventional methods of extractive chemistry for their targeted purification, but also by biocatalysis approaches based on halogenation enzymes purified from marine fungi. In addition, the structures of the molecules obtained will be elucidated and their activity evaluated on different biological targets, more particularly on a panel of bacterial and fungal strains of therapeutic interest. Depending on the progress of the project and the molecules obtained, the elucidation of the biosynthetic pathways of these compounds, and more particularly the halogenation mechanisms involved, will be investigated via molecular biology and genetic engineering approaches in collaboration with partner teams from the project.

    The recruited person will also participate in the upkeep and maintenance of the analytical park, the management of the budget and consumables dedicated to the project as well as the writing of reports, publications and the dissemination and valuation of the results.
