A postdoctoral position studying cardiac development (epigenetic regulation of cell lineage decisions) is available early 2013 in the INSERM team of Dr. Michel Pucéat at the University of Paris Descartes. The laboratory offers a competitive interactive environment with a strong research in early normal and pathological cardiac biology of development. It has numerous collaborations and joined grants with leader laboratories in cardiac biology of development in USA and Europe. Work conducted in the laboratory includes epigenetics,
genetics and developmental biology (stem cells and mouse embryos) to study normal and abnormal cardiac development. We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic candidate who will carry out an independent research project aimed at understanding genetic and epigenetic (higher order chromatin structure) regulations of three cell fate decisions in the course of cardiac development. Applicants should be highly enthusiastic and have recently completed doctoral or postdoctoral training in Developmental Biology (mouse or zebrasfish embryos). Training in Epigenetic concepts and technologies (ChIP, ChIP-loop, 3C…) will be appreciated.
The position is well funded within the frame of a France-USA Research network of excellence. However, the candidate is expected to have a competitive CV and will be encouraged to apply for independent fellowships (EMBO, Young Investigator award of a USA-France research Foundation, INSERM postdoctoral programmes…). Both foreign and French candidates are encouraged to apply.
Please send CV with a resume of your research interest, and names of 3 references to: email@example.com
