IGBMC Call for Group Leader positions in Integrated Structural Biology
Dec. 28, 2014
The Integrated Structural Biology (ISB) department of IGBMC is recruiting new group leaders with support from the Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx) initiative.
Research teams in the department address fundamental biological questions of major importance for human health and diseases, mainly in the field of eukaryotic gene expression at the transcriptional level (basal transcriptional machinery, transcriptional activators and co-regulators, histone modifiers, chromatin structure, DNA topology, epigenetics) and at the translational level (RNA stability, protein synthesis, ribosome structure).
Our aim is to unveil the 3D structure of macromolecular complexes and understanding its relationship to invivo functions via an integrated multi-scale approach.
To strengthen and expand its research, the ISB department welcomes applications for team leader positions.
The main criteria for candidate evaluation are scientific excellence and a competitive biological and/or biomedical project.
Favorable assets are (i) experience in advanced methods in integrative structural biology with emphasis on new developments, (ii) a biological project related to the main scientific questions of the department, and (iii) a biomedical subject of exceptional interest.
Candidates exploring innovative technologies interfaced with current structural biology methods, such as cellular electron tomography, FIB-SEM, supramolecular mass spectrometry, microfluidics, production and characterization of macromolecular complexes, among others, are also strongly encouraged to apply.
The ISB department has a high international visibility and hosts European (Instruct) and National (FRISBI) infrastructures in Integrated Structural Biology.
The successful candidates will take advantage of collaborative opportunities at IGBMC and of the environment provided by the new Center of Integrative Biology (CBI) which comprises complementary and cutting-edge technologies such as X-ray diffraction, NMR, cryo electron microscopy, high-resolution imaging and molecular modeling methods.
Candidates with outstanding leadership skills and interest in developing their research in the frame of the strategy of the ISB department are invited to submit 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 07).
Application deadline: February 28, 2015.
Interviews: Spring 2015.
