IGBMC call for group leader positions in Functional Genomics & Cancer

Oct. 1, 2014

The Functional Genomics and Cancer (FGC) Department of IGBMC is recruiting new group leaders with support from the Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx) initiative.


The department addresses the fundamental mechanisms regulating gene expression, epigenetics and chromatin in the normal and transformed states. Research in the department involves integrative approaches from the molecular, genomic and structural levels to in vivo studies in the model organisms mouse and Drosophila. The IGBMC core facilities, in particular the Mouse Clinical Institute and the next generation sequencing, bioinformatics and imaging platforms play strong supporting roles for the research of the department.


As part of an initiative to strengthen and expand its research, the FGC department is welcoming applications for group leader positions. We are seeking applications from candidates studying:

  • All aspects of transcriptional regulation from the study of regulatory elements, basic mechanisms, transcription factor and cofactor function, to chromatin dynamics and epigenetics.
  • We will pay special attention to candidates whose research programme involves integration of functional and structural approaches with the physiopathology of model organisms, in particular mouse or Drosophila.


Successful candidates are expected to develop ambitious, innovative and collaborative research programs, and should have an outstanding track record.

A start-up package will be provided to the appointed group leaders, and successful candidates will benefit from office space and access to the IGBMC platforms and services. New groups are expected to start as soon as 2016.

Your application : The application should be a single PDF file containing a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, names and contact details of three referees, a brief description (2 to 4 pages) of past achievements and a detailed description (4 to 5 pages) of future research plans.

Applications must be sent to Labex-INRT@igbmc.fr, subject line : LabEx 06.

Application deadline: 30 November 2014. Interviews: Early spring 2015.
