The position is available starting on December 1st, 2017
A one-year postdoctoral position is available for a highly motivated candidate to work on the role of autophagy in kidney epithelial cell homeostasis. Our lab, specialized in physiological implications and cell biology aspects of autophagy is notably studying the mechanisms by which autophagy integrates fluid shear stress to regulate cell size in a cell autonomous and non-cell autonomous manners. (see our recent publication: Orhon, Dupont et al 2016 Nature Cell Biology 18, 657-67.). https://www.institut-necker-enfants-malades.fr/index.php?menu=team&rubric=teamtabs&idfac=codogno-friedlander
Candidates with a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology or in Physiology obtained during the past four years and with experience in the fields of autophagy, cell signaling, kidney physiology, zebrafish model (not mandatory) are encouraged to apply. Salary is 50,400.00 Euros/year according to the guidelines of the INSERM. The position is available starting on December 1st, 2017.
The host Institute: The Institut Necker-Enfants Malades (INEM, www.institut-necker-enfants-malades.fr), created in January 2014, is an international biomedical research centre located on the Necker campus, and supported by the INSERM, CNRS, and the University Paris Descartes. The Necker campus encompasses the Hospital Necker-Enfants Malades and two research institutes, the Institut Imagine, devoted to genetic diseases (www.institutimagine.org/en/) and the Institut Necker-Enfants Malades (>250 persons working in life science, metabolism, immunology, infectious diseases and biomedical research). The Necker campus benefits from several core facilities (animal facility together with an aquatic zone devoted to zebrafish, histology, flow cytometry, imaging genomics, bioinformatics, proteomics, viral production and metabolomics).
