The GReD wishes to recruit a new independent leader to establish a group within the scientific spectrum of the GReD. The project must be focused on the scientific field covered by the UCA CAP 20-25 project – challenge 3: « Personalized human mobility for a better health » (Muscle development, metabolic response to exercise, impact of nutrition on mobility, pathologies affecting locomotion... see annex).
The research interests of the GReD teams fall within three domains: i) Genome dynamics and epigenetic control; ii) Reproduction and development in health and disease; iii) Endocrinology, signaling and cancer. The GReD presents also an attractive multi-model research center with plants, invertebrates and mammals that fosters synergistic discussions and in-house interactions.
Since July 2017, we are housed in a new building, which provides an exceptional research environment and space for new teams.
As part of the CAP20-25 initiative, the successful candidate will benefit from a start-up package of €300,000 to €340,000 (salaries and operating budget for 24 to 30 months). In addition, the GReD will provide laboratory space (±50m2), administrative support and free access to state-of-the-art technological platforms (cell/tissue culture, FACS, imaging/live imaging, histology). The successful candidates will also benefit from in-house transgenic and bioinformatics facilities. Further facilities such as high-throughput sequencing, mass spectrometry, proteomics, electron microscopy or radiobiology are available on the multidisciplinary Medical School campus.
Candidates must have completed at least 3 years of postdoctoral training in a country different from the one of their PhD graduation. Candidates currently holding a post-doctoral position in Clermont-Ferrand are not eligible. Applications should include a cv, a short description of achievements and a record of self-financing, accompanied by the proposed research program (5 pages maximum), contact details for 3 professional references. We encourage both young and already established outstanding researchers to apply. The GReD will assist successful candidates to compete for a permanent research position in a French research institution as well as for external funding (competitive grants).
The final deadline for applications is noon, May, 15th, 2019 Europe (no file transmitted beyond this date/time will be evaluated).Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by an international scientific committee. Please send your application as a single PDF file of approximately 6/10 pages named LASTNAME_GReD_2019.pdf to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any enquiries concerning this call should also be sent to this address.
