OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Colinge Laboratory Cancer Bioinformatics and Systems Biology at IRCM (Cancer Research Institute of Montpellier) is looking for a talented postdoctoral fellow.

The microenvironment of cancer cells is known to play an important role in tumor progression and resistance. We are looking for a talented post-doctoral scientist to develop models relating the response to different drugs, e.g. platinum-based, with the microenvironment of lung adenocarcinomas (LUADs). This work will integrate on-going developments to infer the cellular interactions taking place in tumor microenvironments (TMEs), both in single cell transcriptomics and bulk analyses (Cabello et al., 2020; Alame et al., 2020). We aim at establishing quantitative and predictive models of treatment outcome based on data acquired from mouse tumors following different dynamics (rapid/slow growth, spontaneous/acquired resistance, response, etc.). The project involves a consortium of expert laboratories in lung cancer and mouse models thereof, bulk and single cell transcriptomics, animal computer tomography, and 3D-imaging. The postdoc position is funded for 2 years.

Preferred qualifications are either a bioinformatics PhD and solid computational skills or a mathematics/physics/computer science PhD with strong interests in life science applications. The successful candidate will be appointed for one year, which will be extended by another year upon performance evaluation. For a person who can justify a senior postdoc experience in bioinformatics (>5 years), we are open to the possibility of part-time recruitment (70%).

Interested applicants should e-mail their CV, a letter of motivation and the names and e-mails of 2 references to Prof Jacques Colinge (jacques.colinge@inserm.fr). Applications will be studied immediately. Starting data from May 1, 2021, or later.

Research topics of the Colinge laboratory are focused on the functional analysis and modeling of interaction networks in cancer biology and immunology, with a particular interest for the TME for several new projects. The lab also develop advanced computational proteomics methods, e.g. to model protein dynamics in biofluids.
