PostDoc position : Saeij Lab, Davis, California, USA 

The Saeij lab ( at the University of California, Davis, is currently looking for several postdoctoral scholars to work on NIH-funded projects investigating Toxoplasma-host interactions. These projects are following up on Toxoplasma CRISPR/Cas9 loss-of-function screens that we have performed in vivo in mice and in vitro in interferon-gamma stimulated murine, rat, and human cells We are looking for team players that are excited about studying host-parasite interactions. Previous experience with molecular biology and biochemistry is a plus. The Veterinary School at UC Davis is ranked as the best in the country and we are surrounded by colleagues working on host-microbe interactions ( UC Davis is located in the town of Davis, which is ranked as one of the best towns to live in in the nation. Davis is close to San Francisco, Sacramento, the Napa/Sonoma wine country and the Lake Tahoe ski area. UC Davis offers excellent benefits and multiple opportunities for professional development for postdocs (see Interested candidates can submit a current C.V. and names of three references to: Dr. Jeroen Saeij (This email address is being protected from spambots.

PostDoc position : Identify new repository molecules against Cryptosporidium, Tours, France 

The lab seeks to hire a highly motivated candidate to work on the identification of new repository molecules against Cryptosporidium and decipher their mechanism of action. The position is funded by a French ANR grant hold by F Laurent (INRAE) and Ali Hakimi laboratory (CNRS Grenoble). The salary is based on the INRAE remuneration grade table for an experienced post-doc. The contract will be for 18 months, extendable up to 2 years. Dayto- day work will be carried out at INRAE Tours-Nouzilly, with possible experiments at IAD Grenoble. The contract is open and allows immediate recruitment. The project includes drug screening, in vitro and in vivo assays on various mouse models, target validation with transgenic Cryptosporidium parasites.


The AIM team (Apicomplexa and Mucosal Immunity) studies the Biology of Cryptosporidium and Eimeria, host-immune responses and control means


Expertise in the following areas will be very appreciated:

  • molecular parasitology (protozoans)
  • Cell culture o Animal experimentation (mouse)
  • Microbiota analysis
  • Ability to work self-motivated and perform independent research with national and international collaborators
  • Good verbal and written English skills.

Emerging Leader Research Fellow, Oxford Brookes University, UK 

The Oxford Brookes University offers an opportunity to develop an independent research group in molecular parasitology/protistology through a five-year research Fellowship.

They are looking for a motivated early-career researcher with a track record in the application of molecular parasitology/protistology with advanced bioimaging/image analysis.

The Fellow will join a dynamic parasitology grouping that utilises a combination of cutting-edge molecular approaches with advanced bioimaging to dissect the fundamental biology of a wide-range of parasites including trypanosomes, Leishmania, Plasmodium, Eimeria.

The appointed Research Fellow will be provided with a 5-year 100% research position providing long-term, flexible support to develop an independent research career. He will be assigned a mentor in the department will have access to high-quality professional development and networking opportunities as well as competitive internal pump-priming, research funding and fully funded studentships.

PostDoc position : Gene regulation/ DNA low complexity regions-DNA binding proteins, Montpellier, France 

The post-doc project aims to investigate the role of Low Complexity Regions in regulation of gene expression in P. falciparum (Menichelli et al., 2021) and the identification of proteins regulating this process. The position is funded by an ANR grant and the salary based on the CNRS remuneration grade table. The contract will be for 2 years starting spring/summer 2023.


The Lopez-Rubio lab ( The goal of the team research is to understand molecular mechanisms of gene expression in Plasmodium falciparum, the causative agent of malaria, using cutting edge technologies.

The group is based within the LPHI unit, in the University of Montpellier, France.

The team investigates Plasmodium falciparum  nuclear biology and is part of the LabEx ParaFrap.
