A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Institut Pasteur is seeking to recruit a mid-career/senior scientist to head a new research unit specialized in cryo-electron microscopy and molecular/cellular cryo-tomography. The successful candidate will establish an independent research unit within the Structural Biology and Chemistry department, focused on the development and application of cutting-edge electron microscopy methods such as high-resolution single particle approaches and/or in situ structural biology research (Cryo-electron tomography, correlative light and electron microscopy, novel methods development in cellular cryo-EM, 3D EM methods for quantitative image processing and analysis). Applicants must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) with significant experience in many aspects of electron microscopy and a record of independent scientific productivity as evidenced by citable publications and external funding.

The successful candidate will conduct research in the field of structural biology in relation to human health, in close interaction with other groups on campus. Research projects bridging the gap between structural and cell biology are strongly encouraged. Active cooperation with existing research units on campus and willingness to contribute to the scientific dynamism of the institute are expected. The group will contribute to maintaining a cryo-EM facility composed of 200kV and 300kV high-end cryo-electron microscopes equipped with direct detection cameras.

Applications will be evaluated on the basis of scientific excellence. A highly attractive package to match the experience of the successful applicant will be provided. Further information on the Institute and on-campus facilities can be found at http://www.pasteur.fr

The Application should comprise the following (in order) in a single pdf file:

  • A brief introductory letter;
  • A Curriculum Vitae, a list of 10 selected publications and a full publication list;
  • A description of past and present research activities (up to 3 pages with 1.5 spacing);
  • The proposed research project (with a title; 4 pages with 1.5 spacing);
  • The names of 3 scientists from whom letters of recommendation can be sought, together with the names of scientists with a potential conflict of interest from whom evaluations should not be requested.

Applications and requests for information should be addressed to cryo-em@pasteur.fr by September 15, 2015 (5 pm CEST). Short-listed candidates will be called for interview which will take place at the end of October, and decisions will be announced by mid-December 2015.
