Call for a new research group leader, Clermont-Ferrand (France)
The Laboratory of Genetics, Reproduction and Development (GReD, https://gred-clermont.fr) is a Research Center in Clermont-Ferrand supported by the UCA (Université Clermont Auvergne), the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and the INSERM (Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale). The center is composed of 14 research groups (in total 150 people) and is situated on the campus of the Faculty of Medicine. The GReD is part of the Biology research community in Clermont-Ferrand, which provides an outstanding concentration of knowledge and skills fueling student formation and training.
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 provides also an attractive multi-model environment with plants, invertebrates and mammals that favor 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.
The GReD wishes to recruit a new independent leader to form a group within the scientific spectrum of the GReD. The GReD will provide laboratory space (50m2) and free access to state-of-the-art technological platforms (cell/tissue culture, FACS, imaging/live imaging, histology). The successful candidates will have full access to transgenic plant and animal (mouse, drosophila, Arabidopsis) and bioinformatics facilities and will benefit of administrative support. Facilities for high-throughput sequencing, mass spectrometry, proteomics, electron microscopy and radiobiology are available on the multidisciplinary Medical School campus.
Applications should include a cv, a short description of achievements and a record of self-financing, accompanied by the proposed research program and contact details for 3 professional references. We encourage both young and already established outstanding researchers to apply.
The GReD will assist successful junior scientists to compete for a permanent research position in France as well as for external funding (competitive grants).
The deadline for applications is July 1st, 2018. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed end of September 2018. Please send your application as a single PDF file of approximately 6/10 pages named LASTNAME_GReD_2018.pdf to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any enquiries concerning this call should also be sent to this address.
