The Revive consortium (http://www.revive.fr/en) employs next generation sequencing, bioinformatics and systems biology tools to investigate the fundamental gene regulatory processes governing the biology of stem cells. Revive is composed of 6 academic Partners (Institut Pasteur, INSERM, CNRS, INRA, UPMC-Paris VI, ENVA) representing 22 scientific and medical (Institut Cochin, Européen G. Pompidou and Pitié-Salpétrière Hospitals) research teams developing close interactions with selected biotech companies.
We invite applications for a:Computational Scientist
Starting after January 2019, the appointment will be made initially for 18 months with the possibility of extension for 18 additional months.
We are looking for a computational scientist with a strong background in genomics, transcriptomics and epigenomics.
Expertise in working with NGS data as well as statistical and programming skills are essential. Experience in the fields of chromatin, stem cell and/or developmental biology would be advantageous. The successful candidate should be strongly motivated, highly collaborative and have excellent communication skills in English.
The candidate will join the Navarro lab to work in the framework of a recently awarded Consolidator ERC (for details: https://navarrolab.simdif.com/). The successful candidate will also integrate a team of bioinformaticians working with several other groups of Revive (http://www.revive.fr/en/team-members). The work involves the analysis and integration of Omics data, biological interpretation of such data and development of mathematical models for stem cells and developmental biology.
We offer a challenging and rewarding position with excellent working conditions as part of an interdisciplinary consortium working on stem cells, developmental biology and personalized medicine in the dynamic city of Paris. A competitive salary based on Pasteur standards will be offered (brut per month between 3 and 4k€ according to the candidate experience).
Applications should be submitted to email@example.com and include a detailed CV, a brief description of previous research experience and interests (1 page), publications list, plus the contact details of at least two referees.
