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

The Lambrechts Lab at Institut Pasteur in Paris (https://research.pasteur.fr/en/team/insect-virus-interactions/) is seeking to hire a postdoctoral researcher to work on the population genomics of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, the main vectors of dengue and Zika viruses. The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled. The expected start date (negotiable) is early 2019. The position is initially for one year, with the possibility of extension. Salary is commensurate with experience according to the Institut Pasteur guidelines.

Mosquito-borne viruses cause one of the most prevalent types of emerging infectious diseases worldwide and are a growing threat to public health. Research in the Lambrechts Lab aims to elucidate the genetic factors that make mosquitoes resistant or susceptible to dengue and Zika virus infection, and ultimately devise novel methods to interfere with virus transmission. We combine forward genetic screens and reverse genetics to identify and characterize mosquito susceptibility genes. To identify candidate genes, we perform genome scans to dissect genotype-phenotype relationships using various strategies (genome-wide association study, bulk segregant analysis, adaptive scan). The Institut Pasteur has a large and vibrant genomics and computational biology community including research units in evolutionary genomics of humans, microbes and mosquitoes, and the Center in Bioinformatics, Biostatistics and Integrative Biology (https://c3bi.pasteur.fr/).

The position will involve:

* Designing strategies to perform genome-wide scans and high-throughput genotyping

* Processing and analyzing sequencing data including quality control and bioinformatics

* Applying advanced statistical analyses to existing genetic polymorphism datasets

Applicants must hold (or be about to obtain) a PhD in genomics, quantitative/evolutionary genetics, bioinformatics, computational biology, or biostatistics. High motivation, English proficiency (oral and written), excellent communication skills and ability to work collaboratively are essential.

An ideal candidate will have:

* Strong programming and bioinformatics skills

* Extensive experience with population genomic data analysis

* An interest in mosquitoes and/or mosquito-borne diseases

To apply, please send (1) a cover letter outlining your previous experiences that make you suited for this position as well as your research, training and career goals, (2) your CV, and (3) contact information for 3 references via email to louis.lambrechts@pasteur.fr.
