Post-doctoral researcher in heart development, Paris, France

Posted by , on 10 November 2015

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

In the Institut Imagine and Institut Pasteur, Paris France, the laboratory of Sigolène Meilhac is interested in the mechanism of heart morphogenesis. We focus on the regulation of cell behaviour by combining mouse genetics, quantitative analyses in 3D, cell and molecular biology.

Following from previous work in the team identifying a novel regulation of Hippo signalling in the mouse heart, we recruit a post-doctoral researcher to study this mechanism of heart growth. Such characterisation of a developmental pathway and how it can be re-activated in the more mature heart is relevant to heart repair.

After a PhD in biology, you have a solid experience in fundamental research. You work with rigour and creativity. You master cell cultures and molecular biology approaches and you have a strong interest in developmental biology.

The position, which is available at the beginning of 2016, can be funded initially. Applicants are encouraged to apply for fellowships.

Applications, including a covering letter, a curriculum vitae and contact details of three references should be sent to
