Chairs of Excellence: Labex SIGNALIFE
The Laboratory of Excellence for Innovation in Signal Transduction Pathways in Life Sciences (Labex SIGNALIFE)
|Primary Category:||Research Group Leader|
|Type of Position:||Postdoctoral Research|
Description and Details:
The Laboratory of Excellence for Innovation in Signal Transduction Pathways in Life Sciences (Labex SIGNALIFE) brings together high-profile researchers from five institutes of biology (Centre Méditerranéen de Médecine Moléculaire-C3M, Institut de Biologie Valrose-iBV, Institut de Pharmacologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire-IPMC, Institut de Recherche sur le Cancer et le Vieillissement de Nice-IRCAN, and Institut Sophia Agrobiotech-ISA) and one research Institute for Digital Science and Technology (Inria) at Université Côte d'Azur. The common goal of the SIGNALIFE teams is to study signaling pathways from their architecture to their modulation, in order to understand their role in the development and the functions or dysfunctions of organs and organisms. Various biological models are used, and the applications resulting from basic and translational research include biomedical research, pharmacology, development and agriculture.
In the context of this call for a Chair of Excellence in the field of cell signaling, the Institut de Biologie Valrose (iBV) is looking for an internationally renowned researcher or a young researcher with a strong track record to develop a project that complements existing research topics at the institute (signaling, cell and developmental biology, neurobiology, and tissue and organ morphogenesis and function, as well as associated disorders and therapies). Research at the iBV is dedicated to deciphering the basic principles of biology involved in health and disease. To this aim, iBV researchers use a wide range of biological model systems (yeast, worm, sea urchin, fly, zebrafish, mouse and organoids) as well as human tissues and patient samples. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who combines scientific excellence with an interest in addressing emerging new biological concepts and/or disease-related challenges. Applications relating to the study of vertebrate regeneration, the development of quantitative approaches in biology and the use of zebrafish as a model organism are particularly encouraged. The institute is committed to improving the gender balance and encourages women to apply.
