The project: Regulation of adrenal homeostasis by macrophages (ADREMAC)
The Molecular Pathophysiology of Adrenal and Endocrine Tissues (MOP@ET) team at the GReD institute (CNRS UMR 6293, INSERM U1103, University Clermont Auvergne) is seeking a talented and highly motivated post-doctoral research associate to elucidate the role of macrophages in adrenal cortex differentiation and function. This exciting ANR-funded project will rely on elaborate genetic models and state of the art transcriptomic approaches to investigate the role of macrophages in coordinating adrenal cortex renewal and differentiation, which are crucial for the maintenance of endocrine and body homeostasis.
The position and environment: The postdoctoral researcher will be recruited in January 2022 for a 36-month contract with CNRS. The GReD institute is a highly dynamic workplace, setup in a brand-new building hosting state of the art facilities. The institute is located in Clermont-Ferrand, a young and vibrant university city (>35 000 students at University Clermont Auvergne) surrounded by the volcanoes of Auvergne (UNESCO world Heritage), providing a perfect mix between the intensity and dynamism of a metropolis (urban area of 500 000 inhabitants) and the serenity of nearby wide-open wild spaces.
Duties and responsibilities: You will work in an organised manner to produce independent and original research within the lab. You should design and conduct experiments, analyse data and report to the supervisor. You will present your work at lab meetings and national/international conferences. You will be involved in the submission of publications to refereed journals. You should participate, with other lab members, in the day-to-day running of the team projects, in particular by supporting more junior members of the group.
The candidate: You should be highly motivated, committed and have clear career goals. You must hold (or be close to completion of) a PhD in biology with experience in either immunology or physiology/endocrinology and have at least one first-author publication published in a respected journal. Experience working with mouse models (preferably genetically engineered models) is mandatory. You should be proficient with basic molecular biology techniques, histological analyses and flow cytometry. Experience with OMICs, single-cell approaches and bioinformatic analyses would be a plus.
Application procedure: Interested candidates should send a cover letter describing their research activities, training, career goals and motivation for the position (maximum 2 pages), a full CV with list of publications and communications as well as 2-3 references to Dr Pierre Val:
email@example.com. Pre-application enquiries are welcome. Applications are due before 15/10/2021. Interviews will be held in late October
