This action is concerted between the CNRS institutes (INSB/INEE/INSU). It is supported by laboratories of these institutes in two cities: Lyon and Marseille, with complementary skills and recognized for their disciplinary excellence. This CPJ aims to strengthen the teams of these laboratories on a theme at the interface of the priorities of the CNRS.
This CPJ should allow the development of an integrative approach to the adaptive mechanisms of the extreme microbiome in response to variations in these conditions, combining skills in ecology, molecular microbiology and functional genomics. The understanding of the mechanisms put in place in these organisms used to hostile conditions and how they genetically and physiologically manage the variations of these extreme conditions should allow to understand the evolution of mesophilic ecosystems during the evolution of climatic conditions envisaged in the near future, and thus to evaluate the reaction of ecosystems in the global context of 'One Health'. Thus, this CPJ is part of the general framework of actions related to climate change and the COP of the CNRS.
Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil
This CPJ corresponds to a structuring action of the CNRS institutes to strengthen the teams of several potential target laboratories (4 laboratories: the Microbiology, Adaptation and Pathogenesis laboratory of INSB and the Ecology of Natural and Anthropized Hydrosystems laboratory of INEE in Lyon, and the Bacterial Chemistry Laboratory of INSB and the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography of INSU in Marseille). This is a national initiative of the CNRS to strengthen future themes at the interface between the scientific priorities of the CNRS institutes involved (INSB, INEE, INSU).
The strategy will be to integrate this CPJ into international actions and in particular European programs on adaptation to climate change. The recruited person will also be accompanied to apply to ERC programs.

Résumé du projet scientifique
The development of massive sequencing approaches has promoted the understanding that microorganisms (the microbiota) are at the base of all ecosystems on Earth, responsible for their good or bad health. In the current context of global climate change, understanding the mechanisms by which microorganisms have adapted over geological time, and will adapt to current changes, is of major importance in order to understand and anticipate the future evolution of ecosystems in the near and distant future.
High throughput sequencing technologies have given access to the catalog of all organisms present in these biotopes, and offer access to their gene content, which allows us to ask the question of adaptation to extreme conditions in terms of the response of communities and cells to extreme conditions and to variations in these conditions. Today, these data are used by distinct scientific communities that seek to answer this question separately using complementary approaches.
It is therefore necessary to associate centers of excellence mastering respectively mechanistic and functional ecology approaches to create a synergy around the studies of the molecular and population bases of adaptations to extreme conditions.
Résumé du projet d'enseignement
The teaching project will be modulated according to the universities to which it is attached and must be integrated into the curricula developed with the teaching team concerned.

The dissemination of the results will be done through world-class scientific productions: publications, patents, software... In addition, the results will be communicated to various targets such as scientific communities, media, decision makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools may be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.
The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favor of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible as possible and closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its laboratories accessible, in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, except for specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, to be more qualitative and to take into account all facets of the researcher's profession.
Science et société
The relationship between science and society is now recognized as a full dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will contribute to informing public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors of the socio-economic and cultural eco system of the project
The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalized by contracts, on international presence, on the promotion of work to multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
