A postdoctoral position is available at the INSERM-UPMC-Paris VI U787-Myology Group, Institut de Myologie, Groupe Hospitalier Pitié-Salpêtrière (Paris), from March 1st 2010.
The candidates must have a Ph.D. and a strong background either in cell biology/muscle physiology or in molecular biology. Previous experience in microscopy and/or epigenetics will be an important asset.
The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary, highly dynamic group working at the interface between basic and biomedical research and covering all fields of research on muscle disorders (clinical, genetics, pathophysiology, cell stress, pharmacological therapies, therapeutic trials), with immediate clinical applications. He/she is expected to conduct with high autonomy a research project on the consequences of cell stress in skeletal muscle in early onset myopathies, and to have the potential to develop eventually his/her own lines of research.
The successful applicant will integrate an internationally-known reference center on muscle disorders, with a highly stimulating scientific and medical environment.
