The candidate will carry-on this research by a bottom-up approach combining model in vitro cell culture, mechanical measurements and microscopy. Microfabrication and Image analysis will be also developed.
Under the supervision of the project leader he or she will have to analyze data on cell migration and invasion, put in place a pipeline for image analysis, and work in close collaboration with PhD students, other researchers of the institute and Alveole Company.
He or she will have to work in a multidisciplinary environment.


The candidate will work on cell migration and invasion in confined environments based on microfabrication techniques. He/She will study the role of cell-matrix adhesions, cell shape changes, nucleus deformation and cytoskeleton organization in response to physical constraints imposed by the environment.


Experience in microfabrication, soft lithography methods, biophysics, cell and molecular biology and fluorescence microscopy or image analysis, a background in physics or biophysics and a lot of curiosity. Send us your application.

Work Context

Integration in the team cell adhesion and Mechanics at the institut Jacques Monod ( The team aims at understanding the impact of mechanical cues on tissue organization and cell migration. It is composed of 4 permanent researchers, 1 Assistant engineer, 4 post-docs and 5 PhD students.
The candidate will work in close collaboration with on site groups, national labs and international ones. He or she will have the opportunity to interact with the rich scientific environment of Jacques Monod Institute and the surrounding research centers.
The contract could potentially be extended by applying to National and International grant. The contract grants access to the French social security health system.
