Post-doctoral position in muscle pathology and therapy at IGBMC – Strasbourg - France
IGBMC – Strasbourg - France
Host Lab
Syncytial cells biology
Contract Duration
Deadline for application

The teams of Laporte and Kim are two labs at the IGBMC working on skeletal muscle biology with complementary expertise and approaches. We are jointly looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to manage a joint project in our labs.

Research topic: The project is to investigate the pathological mechanisms of centronuclear myopathy with a particular focus on the correlation between nuclei position and transcriptional alteration, and its impact on disease progression. Findings may be translated into therapeutic proof-of-concepts. Preliminary data, methodologies and tools (including mouse models) are already available in the teams.

Offer: This position is a shared postdoc between two teams (50% each). We initially offer 2 years of contract, which could be extended upon positive evaluation. Start date as soon as possible.

Candidate profile: you are a highly motivated and talented researcher holding a PhD and a first author publication, with strong interest in human disease. Proven expertise in cell biology, imaging and mouse physiology is required. Knowledge in bioinformatics and muscle physiology is a plus. English is the communication language in the teams.

Location: The IGBMC institute is a main European center in Biomedical research equipped with 15 cutting-edge core facilities, and is a highly dynamic and international place hosting over 45 independent research groups working on diverse topics.
Strasbourg is a cosmopolitan city in a beautiful countryside, close to Germany and less than 2 hours from the center of Paris by train.
