A 2-3 years post-doctoral position is available at the ENS, Paris, to study the initiation and growth of cancer from a single cell in zebrafish. The idea is to use the optogenetic tools developed in the host lab to turn on one (or a few) oncogenes (or off some tumor suppressor genes) in single cells of a zebrafish larvea.


The candidate will assess the probability of tumorigenesis in various conditions and backgrounds.
He/she will perform a comparative genetic analysis of tumor vs normal cells.


For this project we are looking for a smart, independent and driven person with demonstrated experience in zebrafish: micro-injection, transgenesis, microscopic observations, ISH and genetic analyses.
Knowledge of image analysis (ImageJ) and computer programming (R, Matlab, LabView) is desired but not mandatory.

Work Context

This work will be performed on the Biology platform of the Physics dept. at 44 rue d'Ulm. It will benefit from the infrastructure of the IBENS (genomics and microscopy platforms)
