Post-Doctoral position in Autophagy regulation in infections

The International Center for Research on Infectious Diseases (CIRI),INSERM U1111, CNRS UMR5308, ENS-Lyon, UCB-Lyon1, France

The position is starting in spring 2018

A 2 years post-doctoral position is available in Lyon (France) in the team of Pr. Mathias Faure at the CIRI ( for a highly motivated candidate.The position is starting in spring 2018 and is funded by FRM.

The team is seeking an experienced, creative and autonomous postdoctoral fellow to study the molecular regulation of autophagy in the context of infections. A particular focus is proposed on deciphering posttranslational modifications that contribute to the autophagic control of intracellular microorganisms, in in vitro and in vivo models.

Applicants should have obtained his/her PhD degree (or equivalent doctoral degree) since at least 3 years, with proven research experience. Candidates with background in autophagy, cellular biology/immunology, host/pathogen interaction and murine models are invited to apply.

The International Center for Research on Infectious Diseases (CIRI) is a dynamic research institute runs by INSERM, CNRS, University Lyon 1 and ENSJLyon that was created in 2013.The CIRI offer state of the art infrastructures and platforms in a stimulating scientific environment.
