Postdoc in France

POSTDOCTORAL/IR POSITION IN GENOMICS : Join the dynamic research team at Institut Curie, a leading player in cancer research, as a Postdoctoral/IR fellow in Genomics. Contribute to groundbreaking projects focused on unraveling the mysteries of DNA replication and genome instability using cutting-edge genomic approaches.

Designation: Postdoctoral/IR Fellow

Research Area: Replication Program and Genome Instability

Location: Paris, 5eme


  • Ph.D. degree in biology, bioinformatics, or related areas
  • Strong computational/statistical skills or a solid background in molecule/cellular biology
  • Experience with single-cell omics, high-throughput imaging analysis, or neurogenesis is a plus
  • Very good English level and communication skills

Job Description: We are seeking motivated postdoctoral fellows to join our “Replication Program and Genome Instability” team at Institut Curie, Paris. The team focuses on studying the spatio-temporal replication program of the human genome and its impact on genome stability in normal and cancer cells.

Project: The project, supported by the Fondation Bettencourt Schueller, aims to develop interdisciplinary methodologies using high-throughput single molecule/cell imaging/sequencing, mathematical modeling, and bioinformatics analyses. The goal is to decipher the link between the replication program and genome instability in cancer and neurogenesis.
