France has a strong academic tradition and is committed to investing in research and education. Here's what French academics make.
The Institut NeuroMyoGène (INMG) is opening junior and senior group leader positions in Lyon, France. INMG is a recently established institute hosting 14 research groups and 200 persons using a variety of invertebrate and vertebrate model systems to conduct multidisciplinary research from genes to physiological functions. The main research topics of the Institute are dedicated to the understanding of the cell biology of striated muscles and of the nervous system, from development to aging under normal and pathological conditions (www.inmg.fr). New groups developing innovative approaches in microscopy, genetics or systems biology are welcome.
INMG benefits from the integration of cutting-edge fundamental research teams and renowned clinicians. INMG has close ties with clinical neurology, cardiology and genetics departments, and the teams have privileged access to large collections of samples from patients with neuromuscular, neurological and cardiac diseases.
INMG teams have access to state-of-the-art facilities in house (sfrsantelyonest.univ-lyon1.fr). This includes a light and electron microscopy platform, a physiology/electrophysiology facility providing neuromuscular, cardiac and metabolic characterization of animal models, a genomic/transcriptomic platform, as well as mouse and zebrafish facilities.
Lab space will be available in 2019 to recruit research groups. We invite applications from outstanding candidates working in fields related to the INMG’s interests and motivated by innovative approaches. Candidates should have an excellent track record and meet the criteria to compete for national and international funding as well as for CNRS or Inserm research positions. Newly recruited group leaders will benefit from a stimulating research environment and comfortable laboratory space. Start-up packages will be discussed on an individual basis.
Applications should be addressed to Laurent Schaeffer and Andrée Defours, respectively director and administrative director of the INMG (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, subject: INMGcall2018). They should include a motivation letter, a research project (2 pages), a full CV and the contact details of 3 professional references.
This call is open until October 1st, 2018. Pre-selected candidates will be invited to the INMG to present a seminar and will be interviewed by the scientific advisory board of the INMG.Lire la suite
Twitter has a lot of value for academics as a professional social network and news service. 1 in 40 scholars in the US and UK use Twitter and that number continues to grow. If you’re not already on Twitter here’s how to use it to share your research, connect with your peers,...
