Cell biology/ Epigenetics
Project: The project is part of a transdisciplinary effort funded by ANR to find new therapeutic approaches to fight infection using epigenetic drugs. Our consortium combines expertise in the biology and epigenetics of infection (5 teams), in proteomics (1 team) and in drug-design and medicinal chemistry of epigenetics (2 teams). Using Chlamydia trachomatis as a model organism, the post-doctoral fellow in the Subtil team will identify epigenetic-targeted molecules that jeopardize Chlamydia’s ability to dampen the inflammatory response of the host to infection, and unravel the underlying mechanisms.
Candidate: The post-doc, a highly motivated research fellow, will have a strong background in cell biology, and in epigenetics. Experience in microbiology is not required.
Diploma required: PhD.
Location: The Institut Pasteur in Paris offers an international, dynamic and stimulating scientific campus. The Institut Pasteur is located in the center of Paris and houses outstanding facilities for sequencing, microscopy, biochemistry and bioinformatics that provide access to state-of-the-art technology. The successful candidate will thus be integrated in a highly collaborative and supportive environment and will have the opportunity to develop multiple skills.
The position is fully funded for 2 years with possibilities for extension.
Salary will be commensurate to experience following the Institut Pasteur pay scale.
