Position Available (from November/December 2021)
Unit “Progressive Sensory Disorders”, by Dr Aziz El-Amraoui, DR Institut Pasteur
Project: Dr Aziz El-Amraoui lab “Progressive Sensory Disorders” is interested to various aspects of sense organs’ biology, with the goals of (1) understanding function of selected pathways in the inner ear, and (2) seeking related pathogenesis & treatments in corresponding animal models (see Dulon D et al. J. Clin. Invest., 2018 ; Dunbar L et al. EMBO Mol Med. 2019, Delmaghani & El-Amraoui, J. Clin. Med. 2020).
We seek candidates for an open position (18 months, possible renewal), to decipher defective protein-protein and lipid-protein interactions in the inner ear.
The work takes place at the Institut de l’Audition/Institut Pasteur, Paris: in a dynamic, multidisciplinary, and international working environment dedicated to the study of hearing, in health and disease, from gene to function, pathogenesis to therapy. We have access to state-of-the art core facilities for molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, imaging, functional and behavioral studies.
Candidate profile: Skills in biochemistry (e.g. protein-protein interactions), molecular and cell biology are required. Prior expertise in interactomic approaches, lipid biochemistry and immunocytochemistry, and link to human disorders will be an asset.
Highly motivated and creative applicants (PhD degree), self-driven, with strong organization skills and enthusiasm are welcome. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Applications, including CV and statement of interest (highlighting key achievements related to the project), and contact details of two references should be sent at the latest on September 15, 2021 to Dr Aziz El-Amraoui: firstname.lastname@example.org
