Call for Two Group Leader positions

Actualités |

Group Leader in Gene Expression & Cancer Research (Ref: TeamFGC2024)

The Institute of Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC) is recruiting a team leader to establish a group broadly focusing on gene expression and cancer research.We are particularly interested in the application of spatial-omics to current questions in cancer biology (e.g. tumor microenvironment, cell-fate & plasticity, senescence/aging, therapy response), using animal or patient-derived material. However, applications from outstanding candidates outside these domains, but with projects related to gene expression & disease will be considered

Group Leader in Neurological genetic diseases - mechanisms, models & therapies (Ref: TeamTMN2024)

The Institute of Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC) is recruiting a group leader to establish his/her own independent team in the area of neurological genetic diseases. We are seeking a PI with broad interest in identifying the genetic causes and/ or deciphering the molecular & cellular mechanisms and/or developing innovative therapeutic strategies of human neurodevelopment, neuromuscular and/or neurodegenerative pathologies. Special attention will be given to candidates with solid expertise in exploiting large Omics data and/ or manipulation of state-of-the-art cellular (iPS, assembloid and/or organoid, etc.) and /or animal (mouse, zebrafish, etc.) models. Applications from outstanding candidates outside these domains, but with projects related to neurological diseases will also be considered.

R e s p o n s i b i l i t i e s :

  • Lead and mentor a multidisciplinary team of scientists to foster a collaborative and innovative research environment;
  • Seek external funding though grants and partnerships to support research projects;

Q u a l i f i c at i o n s :

  • Proficiency in state-of-the-art techniques in the field;
  • Publication record demonstrating expertise;
  • Potentially eligible to the ATIP/Avenir French Program, starting/consolidator ERC grants and/or other similar starting group funding.

Start – up package :
Successful candidates will receive a competitive start-up package, commensurate with experience, and are expected to establish productive links and collaboration with existing IGBMC teams.
Applications of outstanding candidates, junior or senior, not currently holding a permanent position in the French academic system will also be considered.
In s t i t u t i o n :
IGBMC is a multidisciplinary research center in Strasbourg, France that is internationally recognized for its contributions to the study of eukaryotic gene expression, cell and developmental biology, the structural analyses of factors involved in these processes, and the identification of genes involved in human diseases. IGBMC and the Strasbourg area offer a collaborative and dynamic research environment, state-of-the art facilities, including the onsite GenomEast genomics platform and ICS mouse facility, and a supportive network of collaborators.
Ap p l i c at i o n  in f o r m at i o n :
Applicants to either position should include: a cover letter explaining their motivation, a CV including a list of publications, a summary of scientific achievements, and proposed research program (approximately 5-10 pages). Contact details for three referees should also be sent (we will ask for recommendations letters only if the candidate is short-listed). Please refer in the subject the Reference of the Call: TeamFGC2024 or TeamTMN2024.
Ti m e l i n e :
Deadline for sending your application: April 29th 2024
Final pre-selection process: May 15th 2024
Interviews of short-listed candidates: July 1st, 2nd and 3rd 2024
