|The Institut Curie is constituted of a hospital and a world-class multidisciplinary research center combining research in cell biology, genetics, epigenetics, immunology, biophysics, 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, microfabrication and microfluidics, high throughput sequencing, bioinformatics, proteomics and mass spectrometry, antibody technologies, cytometry, and animal housing (https://science.institut-curie.org/platforms/). In addition, the hospital proximity allows access to large clinical databases and sample collections.
As part of one of its strategic research domain entitled «Multiscale Physics-Biology-Chemistry», the Institut Curie is supporting the recruitment of Junior Group Leaders to the unit Physico-Chimie on its research site in central Paris located in an exceptional scientific environment within PSL University.
The successful applicants will join the unit Physico-Chimie, a research department gathering physicists, chemists and biologists interested in the study of the physical principles underlying the architecture and functions of living systems from the molecular to cellular and tissular scale (https://science.institut-curie.org). We encourage applications in all areas complementary to our current research portfolio. New investigators with interest in the biophysics of nuclear organization and functions, the biophysics of multicellular systems, or physics-based approaches to cancer research, are particularly welcome.
The newly recruited group leaders will benefit from the expertise of the unit in biophysics, both at the experimental and theoretical level, 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).
Please send a personal statement explaining why you are interested in joining the 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.
