Advancing Epigenetics Towards Systems Biology

Group Leader Positions- Institit Curie, Genetics and Developmental Biology

Institut Curie


Institut Curie comprises a hospital and a world-class multidisciplinary Research Center focused on cell and developmental biology, genetics, epigenetics, immunology, soft matter physics, organic and medicinal chemistry. It includes over 3,000 researchers, physicians, clinicians, technicians and administrative staff. The institute facilities include advanced imaging, single-cell and high-throughput sequencing, bioinformatics, proteomics and mass spectrometry, cytometry, CRISPR-based screening and animal housing. In addition, the hospital proximity
provides access to large clinical databases and sample collections.

As part of its strategic research domain in Developmental Biology, Cancer, Genetics and Epigenetics, Institut Curie is supporting the recruitment of Group Leaders to the Genetics and Developmental Biology Department located
in central Paris in an exceptional scientific environment within PSL University. More can be found about our deparment at:

We are looking for outstanding candidates who will complement the existing strengths of the Research Center in areas including stem cells, tissue growth and morphogenesis, signal transduction, epigenetics, genomics and integrated physiology. We encourage research programs that will advance our understanding of normal and cancer development using a variety of animal and cellular models.

Appropriate laboratory space for 6-8 people and a start-up package will be available. Candidates should meet criteria to obtain national and international grant funding, and French institutional research positions (CNRS/Inserm).
