Our laboratory has one position available for postdoctoral fellow in the area of skin inflammation and regenerative disease research. We are interested in mechanisms of tissue homeostasis, adaptation and repair, with an emphasis on tissue long lived cells such as stromal cells. Using genetic and pharmacological tools, we investigate the stromal signaling and crosstalk with immune cells, stem cells and other resident cells in different physiological and pathological conditions with a focus on inflammatory and regenerative disorders. We perform mostly in vivo studies, combining lineage tracing and depletion models, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and unbiased approaches such as single cells transcriptomics and epigenetics to characterize molecular and cellular mechanisms. Building on similar approaches, we offer one postdoc position to investigate mechanisms of skin homeostasis and response to acute/chronic injury, with a focus on stromal-immune cells crosstalk.
Required qualifications: Recent PhD or MD/PhD degree in immunology or related biomedical disciplines, with a track record of publications and lab experience in one or more areas that include: skin immunology/biology, innate immunity, vascular biology, tissue repair, stromal/mesenchymal stem cells. Highly motivated candidates interested in areas of research at the intersection of immunology and stromal/stem cell biology are strongly encouraged to apply. Specific requirements:
- Required: Previous experience with in vivo rodent models and flow cytometry
- Desirable: Previous experience in skin immunology/biology, models for skin disease, transcriptomics (RNAseq) or confocal imaging
- Would be a plus: Experience/interest in big data analysis and scripting languages (R, Python)
The position is available starting immediately. Benefits include comprehensive healthcare coverage and 6 weeks paid annual leave. Research will be conducted at Institut Pasteur in the center of Paris, which contains state of-the-art facilities and a highly collaborative research environment with 13 Departments across Biology/Physics/Biomedical fields. Our lab is co-affiliated with the Departments of “Immunology” and “Developmental and Stem Cell Biology”, facilitating interactions and collaborations in these different research areas.
