Currently looking for:

  • 1 PDRA (2y, at IMEDEA) to work on a project aiming to characterise the viscoelastic properties of axonemes (the structure within eukaryotic cilia and flagella), incorporate the new findings into a model of flagellar dynamics, and start quantifying the structural roles played by different axonemal proteins. In collaboration with Idan Tuval (Co-PI) and Hermes Gâdelha. Funded by a grant from the Spanish Ministry of Science. Enquire here (happy to have an informal chat) and apply here (closing date Feb 28, 2021);

  • 1 PhD on flagellar biomechanics (at the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies, Esporles, Balearic Islands) financed by the Marie-Curie European Training Network PHYMOT. For more informations, feel free to email Marco, and see also here (closing date Jan 20, 2021)
