Institut Curie (http://www.curie.fr) is constituted of a hospital and a world-class multidisciplinary research center combining research in cell biology, genetics, epigenetics, immunology, soft matter physics, organic and medicinal chemistry. It includes over 3,000 researchers, physicians, clinicians, technicians and administrative staff working on three sites: Paris, Orsay and Saint-Cloud. The institute facilities include advanced imaging, high throughput sequencing, bioinformatics, small molecule collection, reverse phase protein array, proteomics and mass spectrometry, antibody technologies, cytometry, and animal housing (https://science.institut-curie.org/platforms/). In addition, the proximity with the hospital allows access to large clinical databases and sample collections.
As part of one of its strategic research domain entitled “Multiscale Physics-Biology-Chemistry”, Institut Curie is supporting the recruitment of an outstanding chemical biologist as Junior Group Leader in the Chemical Biology of Membranes and Therapeutic Delivery unit (UMR3666 CNRS — U1143 INSERM (http://chemicalbiology.curie.fr) on its research site in central Paris located in an exceptional scientific environment within PSL University.
The newly recruited group leader will benefit from the expertise of this unit in cell biology, chemical biology, organic synthesis, and supramolecular chemistry, and from state-of-the-art research equipment.
Appropriate laboratory space for 6-8 people and a start-up package will be available. Successful candidates should meet criteria to obtain national and international funding, and for French institutional research positions (CNRS or Inserm).
Applications must comprise a personal statement explaining why you are interested in joining Institut Curie, a 3-4 page research plan, a full CV detailing publications, patents, invited conferences, awards, grants, training and teaching experience, and contact details of 3-5 individuals who can be contacted for recommendation letters. Send these material to Ludger Johannes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for applications: December 15, 2016
