Post-Doctoral position in the “Initiation of Epithelial Cancers” group at the Institut Pasteur de Lille

Mechanisms of Tumorigenesis and Targeted Therapies, UMR8161
Institut de Biologie de Lille, France

Expected employment starting date: 2017-10-01.

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position in the “Initiation of Epithelial Cancers” team headed by Corinne Abbadie at the Institut Pasteur de Lille, France ( The recruited scientist will work on the SENHEAL project which will be conducted in collaboration with the Mathias Chamaillard team at the Institut Pasteur de Lille (

The objective of the SENHEAL project is to investigate the impact and regulation of intestinal epithelial cell senescence during gut wound healing. The role of proteins regulating DNA repair and autophagy pathways will be specifically addressed. The project will require the implementation of several technologies including culture of primary cells, molecular biology, cell imaging and in vivo experiments in mice.

The applicants of any nationality must hold a PhD in an area related to the project and must have experience in the required techniques. Candidates are encouraged to submit a full detailed CV, a cover letter describing their motivation, and reference letters to
