STAGE M2: Synthetic Communication in Bacteria

Date de mise à jour de l’offre

Établissement public national à caractère administratif :

INRA, Micalis

Description de la mission

A 6-month M2 Master’s internship is available at the Micalis Institute, INRA Jouy-en-Josas, to develop synthetic communication in consortia of bacterial cells. Our general objective is to design, build, and test synthetic intercellular communication in microbiological mixed culture systems (such as bacterial co-cultures and bacteria-phage mixed cultures) that can be used to implement biological computing algorithms. We will leverage the theory of "distributed computing" for building and testing synthetic bacteria-phage mixed culture systems. Both the bacteria and the phages will be genetically modified to build a variety of synthetic culture systems using transcription factor and CRISPR based logic for the desired algorithmic implementations.

Profil recherché

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate, ideally with experience in experimental microbiology and molecular biology. They should have strong communication skills and the willingness to work collaboratively with other members of the team, including biologists, mathematicians, and computer scientists. Background in bioinformatics/ computational modelling will be an advantage, but is not essential.
