Post-doctoral positions in the Viral Hepatitis Groups at the Cancer Research Center of Lyon (CRCL)

Three postdoctoral positions are available at CRCL - INSERM Unit 1052 in the research teams of Dr David Durantel (PhD), Pr Massimo Levrero (MD, PhD), and Pr Fabien Zoulim (MD, PhD) to work on the pathobiology of hepatitis B and hepatitis Delta.

These positions are open within the frame of two research programs funded by the French Ministry of Research  (Quantification of circulating viral RNAs as a new biomarker of Hepatitis B functional cure) and by the National Agency for Research against AIDS and Hepatitis (ANRS) and an industrial partner (Drug discovery program on Hepatitis B/D viral co-infections).

The candidates will address the following key questions in experimental models of Hepatitis B and/or D infection/co-infection (hepatocytes cell cultures, mouse models and clinical samples):

  1. Comprehensive molecular characterization of viral RNA containing viral and subviral particles;
  2. Analyses of intrahepatic viral markers, cccDNA levels and transcriptional activity, and integrated viral sequences in correlation with circulating viral RNAs;
  3. Interplay between HDV and innate immunity pathways.

The post-doctoral candidates should be proficient in molecular and cellular virology and/or RNA biology. Experience in primary hepatocytes culture would be welcome. Good knowledge of of spoken and written English is required.

The postdoctoral positions are opened for 2 to 4 years in Lyon, France.

Candidates should submit their application (CV and 2 letters of recommendation) to Bernadette Vaz, project manager: bernadette.vaz@chu-lyon.fr.

While a good cover letter makes an explicit connection between how your past experience will help you succeed in the postdoc position, a great cover letter sparks the PI’s interest and ensures they read your CV.

How many times have you been asked, “What do you research?” only to draw a complete blank or ramble on for minutes? Situations like these are why you need an elevator pitch.
