Professor Christine Petit is delighted to announce the creation of the Hearing Institute which will open in April 2018 in the heart of Paris.
Call for Group Leader positions at the Hearing Institute
The Hearing Institute, an auditory neuroscience research institute, aims to advance our knowledge of auditory signal processing from the sensory organ to the brain, auditory perception and cognition, multisensory and sensorimotor integration, in healthy and pathological conditions. It will do this by bringing together teams of scientists from diverse fields, ranging from biophysics, acoustics, neurobiology, molecular and cellular biology, and genetics, to bioinformatics and computational neuroscience, all highly committed to interdisciplinary research. The Hearing Institute which will be associated with a dedicated clinical center, also aims to develop innovative therapeutic approaches (from engineering solutions to pharmaceutical and biological agents) to hearing and balance disorders.
The Hearing Institute and the nearby Vision Institute will form a campus at the cutting edge in basic sensory neuroscience and related innovations towards patients. It will also enjoy close interactions with Institut Pasteur and the Université Pierre et Marie Curie. The Hearing Institute will house core facilities for electrophysiology, imaging (cell, sensory organ and brain), biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, bioinformatics, genetics and behavior and will have its own animal housing. Sponsored by Bettencourt-Schueller Foundation and ‘Agir pour l’Audition‘ Foundation and ‘Voir et Entendre’ Foundation, the Hearing Institute will be run under the auspices of Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC-Paris-Sorbonne Universités), the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM), Institut Pasteur, the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Collège de France. Various funding opportunities are available. Both senior and junior group leader applications will be considered. Appointments will be made from junior through to senior level, depending on experience. Preference will be given to ambitious objectives addressing major challenges in the abovementioned fields. The deadline for applications is January 15th, 2017. PIs selected by the Hearing Institute Scientific Committee will be contacted directly and invited for interviews in March-April 2017. The Hearing Institute will open in April 2018.
