The team of Wolfgang Keil at Institut Curie in Paris is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to study the biophysics of temporal cell-fate patterning in the model organism C. elegans. The position is funded through an ATIP Avenir Young Investigator Grant, which aims at dissecting mechanisms of developmental robustness and origins of developmental variability in the C. elegans larva.


The project is based on the acquisition and analysis of large-scale 4D long-term live imaging data sets, following blast cell-lineages and gene-expression dynamics at single cell resolution during post-embryonic development of C. elegans. Depending on the background and interests of the successful candidate, the project can be geared towards either developmental and stem cell biology questions, image and data analysis, or mathematical and biophysical modelling.


The successful candidate should have:
1. A recent PhD in either physics, computer science, mathematics, quantitative biology or a related interdisciplinary field
2. Experience in programming, preferably in Python, Matlab, JAVA or C/C++
3. A strong motivation for interdisciplinary research and curiosity about fundamental biological questions
4. Ability for lateral thinking, a sense of humor, and excitement about joining a supportive new team of researchers with diverse backgrounds and interests

Work Context

Institut Curie hosts an internationally-renowned research center in the heart of Paris. Our laboratory is located at Institute Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, a new state-of-the-art facility dedicated to microfabrication, microfluidics and its biological applications, minutes away from Institute Curie's main campus
