Professor in Synthetic biology


EVRY, France

The Genoscope’s “Metabolic Genomics” research unit (UMR 8030) and
the University of Evry, member of the university of Paris-Saclay, is seeking to
recruit a highly motivated professor to lead a new research team, which will be
set up to strengthen its synthetic biology activities
( Located in Evry (30 km south-east of Paris), the unit has a total staff
of about 60 permanent  people (affiliated to the CEA, CNRS and the University of Evry).
Its research activities are developed around three main axes: (1) explore the
biodiversity of organisms using genomic/metagenomic approaches; (2) explore the
diversity of cell chemistry and develop a thorough understanding of prokaryotic
metabolism for fundamental and applied purposes (biocatalysis, bioremediation);
and (3) expand the chemical diversity of biological systems using synthetic
biological approaches. To achieve its objectives, the Unit develops approaches
as diverse as genetics, genomics and bioinformatics, molecular biology,
biochemistry, analytical and organic chemistry, and offers a very favourable
context in terms of equipment, advanced technologies and know-how. In this very
stimulating environment, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to
develop independent and high quality research programs in the field of
“synthetic biology”. The recruited PR will mainly teach in Masters in
Biology for Health and Integrative Biology and Physiology, and more
particularly in M2 System and Synthetic Biology (mSSB) for which the UEVE is
the referent. The ideal candidate will already have successful achievements in synthetic
biology during his/her previous career and demonstrated management skills.
Candidates with a strong background in white biotechnology will be considered
with particular interest

Please send, cover letter, CV, publication
record to Marcel Salanoubat, director of the GM Unit / UMR8030 (
