Postdoctoral position available in: Autophagy, cell biology and physiology
Autophagy pathway and intracellular compartments dynamics team, INSERM U1151, Cell Biology Department of the Institut Necker-Enfants Malades (INEM), Paris, France
A two years postdoc position is available for a highly motivated Ph.D to work on the role of autophagy in kidney epithelial cell homeostasis. Our lab is currently interested in the mechanisms by which autophagy integrates fluid shear stress in kidney epithelial cells. (For example of our recent publication on the subject see: Orhon, Dupont et al 2016 Nature Cell Biology 18, 657-67., Zemirli N,Boukhalfa A,et al 2019 Cell Stress, March, Vol.3 No.3). Candidates with a Ph.D 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. The position is available starting on November 1st, 2019 (the salary is in accordance with Inserm guidelines).
The host team is part of the Cell Biology Department of the Institut Necker-Enfants Malades (INEM), created in January 2014. INEM is an international biomedical research center located on the Necker campus (downtown Paris), and supported by the INSERM, CNRS, and the Paris Descartes University. The Necker campus encompasses as well the Hospital Necker-Enfants Malades and the Imagine Institute, devoted to genetic diseases study (>250 persons working in life science, metabolism, immunology, infectious diseases and biomedical research). Moreover, the Necker campus and INEM benefit 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).
