The Pasteur Hearing Institute seeks to recruit a new research group to reinforce its program on fundamental auditory and cognitive neuroscience and translational approaches to human hearing disorders. We are looking for outstanding applicants from various backgrounds, with proven ability to collaborate, and eager to move forward our understanding of hearing in health and disease. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Auditory processing from the periphery to the cortex
- Artificial intelligence, (neuro)computational methods, and brain machine interfaces applied to auditory perception and cognition
- Innovative approaches for diagnosis, prevention, rehabilitation or treatment of auditory disorders
Successful applicants will join the newly established Hearing Institute located in the heart of Paris, and the vibrant interdisciplinary community of the Institut Pasteur.
Institut Pasteur is a non-profit private foundation dedicated to fundamental, interdisciplinary research and to the translation of knowledge for applications in medicine and public health, including Neuroscience. The Hearing Institute is co-funded by Institut Pasteur, Fondation pour l’Audition and Inserm and hosts 11 research groups. Several teams of the institute work in close collaboration with clinical teams including experts in ENT, neurology, and neurosurgery. It offers an unparalleled research environment with state-of-the-art research laboratories, 5 research platforms on site, as well as the Center for Innovation in Human Audiology. and more than 20 platforms and supporting facilities including a large bioinformatics and biostatistics support group on the Institut Pasteur Campus.
Institut Pasteur values diverse perspectives and is committed to continually promoting gender equity and building an inclusive and culturally diverse campus environment.
Depending on their prior experience, the selected candidate will be appointed with a tenure track position to lead a group of up to 6 (G5 Track) or up to 8 people (G5+ Track). The group will be established for an initial period of 5 year term, with the option to subsequently apply for a 10-year full research group (U10).
Eligibility: G5 track junior group leaders must be less than 8 years after PhD, while G5+ track group leaders must be less than 12 years after PhD at the time of submission. For the G5 track, women are eligible up to 10 years after their PhD if they have one child and up to 12 years after their PhD if they have two or more children. For the G5+ track, women are eligible up to 14 years after their PhD if they have one child and up to 16 years after their PhD if they have two or more children.
An attractive start-up package matching the experience of the candidate will be provided, including institutional salaries (principal investigator, engineer, postdoc), a substantial contribution to running costs and equipment, access to on campus state-of-the-art technology core facilities, as well as support for relocation expenses and administrative issues. The new group will also receive full support of the Institut Pasteur grant office to compete for national and international funding opportunities.
Candidates are encouraged to contact the head of the Institute, Pr. Anne-Lise Giraud (email@example.com).
