Postdoctoral position in cell division during epithelial morphogenesis

Postdoctoral position in cell division during epithelial morphogenesis

We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our team at the Institut Jacques Monod (IJM), Paris, France.

Our research work focuses on dissecting the mechanisms that control cell division in mammalian epithelium, using intestinal organoids as a model. The successful applicant will
join a collaborative project of two groups headed by Dr Delphine Delacour and Dr Nicolas Minc at the IJM. Located on the campus of Université de Paris, the IJM is one of the main public
centers for fundamental research in biology in the Paris area and offers a state-of-the-art field of research.

In addition, the Institute provides a multidisciplinary research environment, as well as access to different experimental approaches through our labs, departments and core
facilities to ensure the successful development of the research.
The applicant should be a researcher holding a PhD degree in molecular, cell and/or developmental biology, with no or maximum 2 years of experience. The candidate should
have solid experimental skills, notably expertise in live cell imaging ang high resolution imaging, as well as a strong interest in cytoskeleton biology. Experience with organoid cultures
would be beneficial but not mandatory. The applicant should be highly motivated, curious and enthusiastic to work on a collaborative project.

The position is available from July 1st, 2022. Initial funding for 24 months is already available.

Candidates are expected to have a competitive track record to also apply to external followup funding. Interested candidates should send their CV including research interests and
contact details of two referees in a single PDF file to delphine.delacour (at) and nicolas.minc (at) .

Priority will be given to applications received before end of April.
