CALL FOR APPLICATIONS - GROUP LEADER POSITION Integrated Structural Biology Department
May 10, 2016
One of the leading biomedical research centres in Europe, IGBMC, brings together more than 700 researchers, PhD students and scientific staff grouped in 50 research teams and 11 scientific services and core facilities. IGBMC is dedicated to fundamental and applied research in life sciences, ranging from structural analysis of proteins to human genetics, stem cells, biophysics, regulation of gene expression and the physiopathology of the mouse. http://www.igbmc.fr/
Under the Laboratory of Excellence initiative (Labex), a group leader position is open in the Integrated Structural Biology (ISB) department. The ISB department addresses the fundamental mechanisms regulating gene expression, epigenetics and chromatin in the normal and transformed states (http://www-igbmc.u-strasbg.fr/research/department/3/). Researchers utilize multi-resolution structural biology approaches in the field of eukaryotic gene expression at the transcriptional, epigenetic and translational level.
As part of an initiative to strengthen and expand its research, the ISB department is welcoming applications for a group leader position from candidates investigatingthe multiscale cellular organisation using structural approaches including cryo electron tomography, FIB/SEM or super-resolution microscopy.
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 leader, and the successful candidate will benefit from office space and access to the IGBMC platforms and services. The new group is expected to start in 2017.
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 by 30 July 2016 and interviews will be held in September 2016.
Applications must be sent to Labex-INRT@igbmc.fr
