Postdoc Position Adrenal tissue homeostasis and cancer at the iBV, Nice, France

The Institute of Biologie Valrose (iBV) is a centre of excellence funded by Inserm, the CNRS and the University of Nice. The iBVs remit is to unravel the basic principles governing organism development and identifying the molecular basis of disease. Our team is interested in signalling pathways that ensure proper organ formation and tissue maintenance and their links with cancer. Further information on the research topics of the Schedl team can be found at http://ibv.unice.fr/EN/equipe/schedl.php.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellow to work on adrenal tissue renewal, the balance of cell proliferation and apoptosis and the pathways that lead to adrenocortical cancer. You will perform in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo experiments and analyse mouse model systems on the phenotypic, molecular and genomic level. You will be working in an international research environment and benefit from state of the art equipment. The initial contract will be for a period of 36 months.

The ideal candidate will be highly motivated, have a PhD degree in biological or biomedical sciences and good English communication and interpersonal
skills. A background in developmental/stem cell biology/mouse genetics is an advantage.
