Ph.D. Student in Nice/France

Our Laboratory is situated at the Faculty of Medicine in Nice.
We study the mechanisms of oxidative stress and its protection, the causes and effects of inflammation, the regulation of intracellular pH and the regulation of membrane potential. We use a wide variety of approaches and techniques. They combine biochemical, molecular and cellular aspects with highly integrated approaches, such as the construction and study of transgenic animal models.
We are looking for excellent applicants for a PhD position, starting in September 2015. The fellowship is granted by the ICST Labex and will be awarded for one of the 3 thesis topics described below. Applicants must imperatively choose one of the three topics (further information can be asked by email to the PhD supervisors, see below). They have to send a detailed CV (with ranks and marks for the Master's degree or equivalent) to [email protected] before July 15 at 12pm, accompanied by a letter explaining their motivation for a PhD and for the chosen subject. Following a pre-selection based on the sent documents, an external panel of scientists will conduct an audition of the selected candidates. The date of the audition will be between July 20 and 29th in NICE at the laboratory.
