What we offer
You will lead a cutting-edge project to uncover key drivers of chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma allowing to discover novel therapeutic approaches using patient-derived tissues and organoids, single cell RNASeq and computational analyses. We provide the opportunity to work in a highly dynamic and international environment and a world-class network within top level research organisations, hospitals and pharma. Furthermore, we offer a competitive remuneration package, mentoring and long-term career opportunities within the Inserm and University of Strasbourg tenure-track program as well as our collaborating partners and pharma.
You are a highly motivated PhD or MD with a strong background in computational analyses of biological circuits and/or cell biology, have a solid track record of publications and are used to work in an international environment. MDs with interest in translational research are also encouraged to apply. You have excellent communication skills in written and spoken English. French is not required.
To apply, please send your motivation letter (why you are interested in this positionand long-term career goals) and CV (work experience and two references) to Prof. Thomas Baumert (Thomas.Baumert@unistra.fr) and Dr. Catherine Schuster (Catherine.Schuster@unistra.fr).
