Evolutionary developmental biology, or evo-devo, involves the study of the molecular mechanisms controlling embryonic development and how molecular strategies for achieving correct embryonic development have evolved across species. France has a historical importance in this field in large part thanks to work undertaken at the three major marine stations (Roscoff, Banyuls-sur-Mer and Villefranche-sur-Mer), which provided access to the embryos of a variety of different marine organisms for study and comparison. Reinforcing France’s position in this domain requires attracting the highest quality of researchers. In anticipation of a need to renew research in this domain, the CNRS proposes to create a Junior Professor Chair at the Laboratoire de Biologie du Développement de Villefranche-sur-Mer (LBDV, UMR 7009). This research unit is composed of 7 teams, three of which will over the short to medium term need to be replaced. This recruitment will also reinforce the position of this unit with the network of French (EMBRC-France) and European Marine stations (EMBRC), which are crucial for the coordination of marine biology at the national and international level. In this regard, the LBDV is key to French efforts;the director of EMBRC-France is also a team leader and director of the LBDV.
Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil
First established in the 1980s, the Laboratoire du Biologie de Développement de Villefranche-sur-Mer (LBDV) (https://lbdv.imev-mer.fr/) has become internationally recognized for its research in Evo-Devo, developmental biology and cell biology, using a range of marine invertebrate organisms. During the last 40 years LBDV has been a pioneer in the use of novel marine model organisms and has explored the local marine biodiversity to select novel marine organisms to answer fundamental biological questions coupled with in silico approaches to study the evolution of organism and animals. LBDV continues to exploit technological advances in molecular, cellular, genetic, genomic approaches to animal evolution, imaging and biomechanics to answer questions centered on the theme of organismal development within an EvoDevo framework. Our recruitment strategy is to strengthen our Evo-Devo approach that exploits the use of non-conventional marine model organisms as well as leveraging genomic resources to study animal and organism evolution. LBDV provides a stimulating and supportive environment for curiosity-driven scientific research and career development, and through our association with the National Infrastructure EMBRC-France can provide access to state-of-the-art imaging, molecular biology and animal facility platforms and via EMBRC-ERIC access to a large network of international collaborators.
The recruitment of a junior professorship will strengthen the position of the Laboratoire de Biologie de Développement de Villefranche-sur-Mer (LBDV) within the network of French (EMBRC-France) and European (EMBRC) marine stations, which are crucial for the coordination of marine biology at national and European level. In this respect, the LBDV is key to the French efforts;the director of EMBRC-France is also team leader and director of the LBDV.

Résumé du projet scientifique
The scientific project should strengthen the research theme at LBDV which is centered around exploiting marine organisms and genomic resources within an Evo-Devo framework to answer questions related to organismal development as well genomic approaches to understand the evolution of animals/organisms. Many specific themes already being studied are centered on embryonic development and range from oogenesis/meiosis, cell division, axis specification, signaling pathways, cell fate specification, asexual development and regeneration, pluripotency, biomechanics of embryogenesis as well as the evolution of organisms/animals. The scientific project theme could be complementary to current research in terms of organism selection and/or the scientific themes including integrated approaches focused on organism development and behavior within the marine environment would also be welcome.

Scientific results will be disseminated through world-class scientific productions (publications, software, patents, etc.). In addition, the project will implement a communication towards various targets such as scientific communities, media, decision-makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools could be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.
The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favour of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible as possible and as closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its units accessible, in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, unless there are specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, making them more qualitative and taking into account all facets of the researcher's job.
Science et société
The relationship between science and society is now recognised as an integral dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will help to inform public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors from the project's socio-economic and cultural ecosystem.
The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalised by contracts, on international influence, on the promotion of work to multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
