Institute Curie (https://institut-curie.org) comprises a world-class multidisciplinary research center combining research in cell biology, genetics, epigenetics, immunology, soft matter physics, organic and medicinal chemistry and a hospital. Highly international, it includes over 3,300 researchers, physicians, clinicians, technicians and administrative staff working on three sites: Paris, Orsay and Saint-Cloud. Its core facilities include advanced imaging technologies, high throughput sequencing, bioinformatics, and proteomics (https://science.institut-curie.org/platforms/) as well as access to large clinical databases and sample collections through the hospital. The Institute is engaged in international partnerships, including the EU-Life alliance (https://eu-life.eu/) and the LifeTime initiative (https://lifetime-initiative.eu/).
Institute Curie is supporting the recruitment of a junior group leader position on its research campus in central Paris in the “Nuclear Dynamics” unit (http://umr3664.curie.fr/en), which is part of the Labex DEEP for “Development, Epigenesis, Epigenetics and LifeTime potential” (https://labex-deep.institut-curie.org/). The five research groups of the unit investigate the mechanisms underlying the stability and the plasticity of genetic and epigenetic information in normal or pathological contexts during development and throughout evolution. Using complementary and interdisciplinary approaches, they aim at developing an integrated view of the functional organization of the genome at different scales: from the molecule to the cell and up to the whole organism.
We invite applications from outstanding candidates wishing to address questions on the fundamental mechanisms of nuclear organization, genome biology and epigenetics, through computational and/or modeling approaches. We are looking for candidates with a strong expertise in bioinformatics, computational biology and/or theoretical biological physics as well as a proven ability to collaborate with experimentalists. If needed, occasional access to wet lab space can be provided. Selection of the candidates will be based on the outstanding quality of their scientific record and project, their capacity to interface with other teams in the unit and beyond in the research center, and their strong collaborative spirit.
The newly recruited group will benefit from a start-up package from the Curie Research center and will be allocated a space adapted for 6 people. In addition, support from the Labex DEEP will complement the package. Successful candidates should meet criteria to compete for national and international funding, and for French institutional research positions (CNRS or University).
Send full CV, motivation letter, 3-4 pages research plan and contact details of 3-5 individuals who can be contacted for recommendation letters. Short listed candidates will be invited to present their past achievements and future research program.
Applications should be sent to: email@example.com
