"Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer" Unit

Institut Curie, France

Institut Curie comprises a hospital and a world-class multidisciplinary research center combining research in cell biology, genetics, epigenetics, immunology, soft matter physics, organic and medicinal chemistry. It includes over 3,300 researchers, physicians, clinicians, technicians and administrative staff working on three sites: Paris, Orsay and Saint-Cloud. Its core facilities include advanced imaging, high throughput sequencing, bioinformatics, reverse phase protein array, proteomics and mass spectrometry, antibody technologies, cytometry, and animal housing (https://science.institut-curie.org/platforms/). In addition, the hospital proximity allows access to large clinical databases and sample collections. The Institute is engaged in international partnerships, including the EU-Life alliance (https://eu-life.eu/) and the LifeTime initiative (https://lifetime-initiative.eu/).

Institut Curie is supporting the recruitment of a Junior Group Leader in the "Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer" Unit, located on its research site of Orsay (South Paris), in an exceptional scientific environment within the campus of the Paris Saclay University.

The "Genome Integrity, RNA and Cancer" Unit is broadly interested in genome integrity and gene expression. This Unit is in a unique position to describe molecular/cellular mechanisms that underlie genome biology at unprecedented levels thanks to in-house complementary expertise in DNA replication, recombination and repair, RNA biology, cytoskeleton, control of cell division and cancer biology. Web site of the Unit: https://science.curie.fr/UMR3348

The newly recruited group leader will benefit from state-of-the-art research equipment. Appropriate laboratory space for 6-7 people and a start-up package will be available.
