The Genetics, Reproduction and Development (GReD) laboratory (www.gred-clermont.fr) is a multi-disciplinary CNRS-INSERM-University research institute on the medical campus of the University Clermont-Auvergne (35,000 students) the main university in central France, localised in the lively city of Clermont-Ferrand, with attractive living conditions and peaceful natural environment.
The GReD consists of 13 groups with research interests ranging from genome dynamics and epigenetic control, development and stem cell biology to endocrinology and cancer. Teams use Arabidopsis, Drosophila and mice as models to address questions of fundamental biology and their application to human health and well-being.
Successful candidates will have access to office and lab space for a team to up to 10 persons in a brand-new 4500 m2 building. The GReD laboratory offers access to state-of-the-art core services, including up-to date cell imaging and histology platforms, single cell genomic technologies, transgenic animal (mouse, Drosophila) and plant facilities. Facilities for high-throughput sequencing, mass spectrometry, proteomics, FACS sorting, electron microscopy and radiobiology are available on the multidisciplinary Medical School campus.
We open two distinct calls:
1. Non-thematic call. Open call for group leaders addressing cutting-edge scientific biological questions, with a special focus on model organism-based research falling within the scientific missions of the Institute.
2. Systems biology / bioinformatics. We are seeking to recruit a group focusing on whole genome data analysis, gene regulatory networks or modelling of biological processes in order to strengthen GReD’s expertise in this fast growing field.
We encourage both young and already established outstanding researchers to apply.
Applications (in English, specifying the call reference as the subject of the email) should include a curriculum vitae a short description of achievements and a record of self-financing, accompanied by the proposed research program and contact details for 3 professional references. The deadline for applications is July 1st 2017. Selected applicants will be interviewed in October 2017. Please send your application as a single PDF file of approximately 6/10 pages named LASTNAME_GReD_2017.pdf to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any enquiries should also be sent to this addres
