This might be of interest to people looking for a post-doc position and the chance to get their hands dirty in next-generation sequencing data analysis... ---------------------------- Original Message ---------------------------- Subject: Post-doc position in Bioinformatics and Computational Systems Biology of Breast Cancer research in Paris Date: Tue, June 30, 2009 4:06 pm ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- Post-doc position in Bioinformatics and Computational Systems Biology of Breast Cancer research at the Institut Curie, Paris, France A postdoc position is open at Institut Curie in the context of the GEPIG (Genetics and Epigenetics of Tumor, project, an integrated approach to profile Breast Cancer from model systems to biological resources. Project: This project is funded through the INCa (National Institute of Cancer) and Institut Curie. It proposes an integrated program to decipher genomic and epigenetic defects using a combination of complementary expertise, tools, models, and a unique tumor bank with the aim to improve the understanding of the biological mechanisms of tumor progression. A strong emphasis will be given to the generation and analysis of large sets of data in particular using new generation sequencing approaches. This project brings together research groups from the Institute, covering a range of expertises from pathology (X. Sastre, A. Vincent Salomon) to genetics (O. Delattre, A. Nicolas, M-H. Stern), epigenetics (G. Almouzni, E. Heard, F. Radvanyi, A. Taddei), bioinformatics and mathematical modelling (E. Barillot). The position is for a duration of 2 years with possible extension. An immediate start is possible. Mission of the postdoc: The postdoc will work under the joint supervision of Dr Genevi?ve Almouzni (Laboratory of nuclear dynamics and genome plasticity) and Dr Emmanuel Barillot (Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Computational Systems Biology of Cancer). She/he will be involved in the generation (experimental design) and computational analysis of data encompassing several levels of observations including transcriptome profiling (including small RNAs), DNA methylation and histone variants and modification analyses. Profile of candidates: The ideal candidate will have a strong background both in bioinformatics/statistics and in molecular biology. Previous experience in sequence analysis will constitute an advantage. The candidate must have a strong capability to collaborate simultaneously with experimentalists and theoreticians. Location: Institut Curie (, Paris, France. Institut Curie is one of the largest European institutions for cancer research with strong and longstanding interdisciplinary traditions. The existence of Curie hospital specialized in cancer treatment located on the same site, provides a continuum of expertise from fundamental research to patient care. Its situation in the center of Paris offers a unique environment both culturally and scientifically. Contact: Please send your CV, a letter of motivation and letters of references to bcsb32 at Deadline for application is July 31st, 2009
