Institut Curie is constituted of a hospital and a world-class multidisciplinary research center combining research in cell biology, genetics, epigenetics, immunology, soft matter physics, organic and medicinal chemistry. It includes over 3,000 researchers, physicians, clinicians, technicians and administrative staff working on three sites: Paris, Orsay and Saint-Cloud.
The institute facilities include advanced imaging, high throughput sequencing, bioinformatics, reverse phase protein array, proteomics and mass spectrometry, antibody technologies, cytometry, and animal housing (platforms). In addition, the hospital proximity allows access to large clinical databases and sample collections.
Institut Curie is supporting the recruitment of a Junior Group Leader in the “Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer” Unit, located at the research site of Orsay (south Paris) in an exceptional scientific environment within the campus of the Paris Saclay University.
The “Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer” Unit is broadly interested in genome integrity and gene expression. This Unit is in a unique position to describe molecular/cellular mechanisms that underlie genome biology at unprecedented levels thanks to in-house complementary expertise in DNA replication, recombination and repair, RNA biology, cytoskeleton control of cell division and cancer biology. Web site of the Unit: UMR3348
The newly recruited group leader will benefit from state-of-the-art research equipment. Appropriate laboratory space for 7 people and a start-up package will be available.
Please send a personal statement explaining why you are interested in joining the “Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer” Unit, a 3-page research plan, a full CV detailing publication, patents, invited conferences, awards, grants, training, teaching experience and contact details of at least 3 individuals who can be contacted for recommendation letters.
The candidates should also indicate how they intend to raise funding, and specify that they meet criteria to obtain national (e.g. ATIP-Avenir) and international funding (e.g. ERC starting grants).
Pre-selected candidates will be invited to give a seminar and will be interviewed by an ad hoc committee in March 2020.
Deadline: January 7th, 2020
Institut Curie is an inclusive, equal opportunities employer and is dedicated to the highest standards of research integrity.
