The Molecular bases of inflammation team, led by Nadine Laguette, is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work on new regulators of nucleic acid-associated inflammatory responses - and their impact in different pathophysiological contexts.
Research topic: We have identified novel regulators of nucleic acid-associated inflammatory responses. The project, led by the post-doctoral fellow, will aim to characterize the underlying molecular mechanisms, the interactions between the different involved proteins, as well as the activated signaling pathways. The impact of the identified regulators on tumorigenesis and anti-viral immunity will be evaluated in vitro and in vivo.
Activities include (but are not limited to) the use techniques relevant to:
- Molecular biology,
- Cellular biology,
- In-vivo experimentation,
The candidate will be in charge of leading his/her project, analyzing the data obtained, as well as presenting them in internal meetings and to other instances.
The candidate will work closely with the other team members and will be involved in the mentoring of junior staff (ex: trainees, Masters students...).
Successful candidates will be highly motivated and hold a PhD. degree in cell biology, immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology or a related discipline. Substantial experience in molecular biology and biochemistry will be particularly appreciated.
An excellent ability to present scientific data, rigor in keeping laboratory notebooks as well as writing skills are expected. A good ability to integrate and interact with various personnel on advanced technical platforms will also be necessary.
The Molecular Bases of Inflammation team is part of the Molecular Bases of Pathologies department of the Institute of Human Genetics (IGH, CNRS UMR 9002), located in Montpellier in the south of France. We are interested in the molecular mechanisms governing the initiation, maintenance and resolution of inflammation. To decipher how the deregulation of these processes promotes pathologies, we study inflammatory responses at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organismal levels. The campus is well equipped with state-of-the-art and cutting edge technologies and offers an exceptional environment for scientific interactions.
