Post-doc position brain cancer cell behavior

Imprimer l'offre

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist for developing original approaches
combining bioinformatics and experimental cell biology aimed at uncovering novel insights in
the molecular basis of brain cancer cell behavior. The position is funded for an initial period
of 2 years and available from October 2021.
The position is open in the team Glial plasticity and neuro-oncology. The team is interested in
understanding the molecular mechanisms that underlie brain cancer cell adaptation to
spatiotemporal changes in their environment. Studies are based on a multidisciplinary
approach combining metabolomics, epigenomics and transcriptomics, as well as in vitro, in
silico, ex vivo and in vivo models. All projects are funded by public agencies and charity
foundations. Further insight into the type of work carried out may be obtained in the team’s
latest publications: Acta Neuropathologica 2017, 2018 (PMC5348560, PMC5773658), EMBO
Molecular Medicine 2016 (PMC5130115), Acta Neuropathologica Communications 2019

Position Highlights:
Up-to-date technical environment combining molecular & cell biology, biochemistry, in
vitro and in vivo imaging, animal facilities and a large panel of in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo
models of human brain tumors.
Dynamic and bilingual scientific environment provided by the inter-disciplinary institute
IBPS located in Sorbonne University campus in the center of Paris next to the riverbanks.
Work within a collaborative network with expertise in neuroscience, oncology, cell
biology, bioinformatics, microfluidics and physics to acquire innovative basic knowledge
that can be translated into efficient therapies


The Ideal Candidate will have:
Experience in cell and molecular biology
Knowledge of high dimensional biological data analysis, including experience in R
programming and / or Python
Ability to work independently as well as collaboratively
Good communication and writing skills


Design, perform experiments and analyze obtained data
Present findings at international seminars
Write manuscripts and participate to funding applications


Qualifications and requirements:
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or a M.D. degree.

Applicants should have no more than one-year previous postdoctoral experience.

How to Apply:

Interested candidates should address to Dr. Marie-Pierre Junier ( and to Dr. Hervé Chneiweiss (
1. A cover letter summarizing their scientific skills, training and accomplishments as well as
their future goals,
2. An up-to-date CV,
3. Contact information for three references
