APPLICATION DEADLINE09/01/2019 23:59 - Europe/Brussels
LOCATIONFrance › Paris
TYPE OF CONTRACTPermanent
Cordeliers Research Centre, Paris, France
The fully funded (2-years) postdoctoral position in type 2 diabetes, inflammation and epigenetic control is available at the Cordeliers Research Center in Paris, France (http://www.crc.jussieu.fr).
*Metabolic Inflammation in Diabetes and its Complications (Venteclef Lab)*
The group led by Dr. Nicolas Venteclef is a multi-disciplinary team with a focus on metabolism, inflammation/immunity and epigenetic regulation, in particular by coregulators and chromatin modifiers in the context of diabetes (http://www.crc.jussieu.fr/en/nicolas_venteclef_eng.html).
The research group is embedded in the University Center of Diabetes and its Complications giving access to human samples of very well phenotyped-patients.
The Venteclef lab combines molecular analyses, in vitro and in vivo approaches to connect basic research with comprehension of human diseases. We offer a dynamic, highly interactive environment and an international working atmosphere with state of the art facilities.
Using state-of-the-art gene-editing and functional genomics/proteomics techniques, we seek to identify epigenomic pathways involved in human diabetes. The proposed project aims to investigate I.) the function of a novel chromatin modifying enzyme and II.) to unravel the cross-talk of metabolic and epigenetic regulation of macrophage activation in diabetes. You will combine metabolomics with genome-wide analyses, proteomics, and molecular- and cellular biology techniques to identify novel mechanisms involved in macrophage activation and function.
A strong background in epigenetics, metabolism and/or inflammation is desirable.
The postdoctoral research will be performed in a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment with world-class experts and advanced technologies and facilities, which provide unique and ideal career development opportunities for postdocs.
Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in molecular biology, genetics/epigenetics, metabolism and/or. Experience with high-throughput genomics/epigneomics, CRISPR screens and next-generation sequencing preparation and analysis is a relevant plus.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter describing your past research experience, a curriculum vitae, and the contact information of three references to Dr. Nicolas Venteclef (Nicolas.firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line “Postdoc Application in Epigenetics”.
