We're hiring! Post-doctoral fellowship in plant and yeast metabolic engineering

We are looking for a full-time postdoctoral researcher that will be involved in an exciting research program funded by the Région Centre-Val de Loire and focusing on the metabolic engineering of highly valuable plant natural products with an emphasize on lignans.

We're hiring! Post-doctoral fellowship in bioprocess engineering

We are looking for a full-time postdoctoral researcher that will be in charge of the characterization of lead strains and optimization of the bioprocess in lab scale bioreactors (2L). She/He will also assess the scale-up potential of the most productive strains by performing 50L productions.



Our mission

The Plant Biomolecules and Biotechnology (BBV) laboratory is developing several research projects on the characterization of specialized plant metabolisms by developing biotechnological and metabolic engineering processes aimed at producing metabolites of interest for pharmaceutical, cosmetic or agronomic applications.
These projects are based on molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry and genomics and metabolomics approaches.
