Deadline for application: May 23, 2021
The IPBS-Toulouse is seeking new group leaders in:
Cancer microenvironment & cancer biology
Implication and targeting of stromal components, extra-cellular matrix, cell metabolism and immune cells in tumor progression (including immuno-therapy). Applications in the field of cancer biology are also welcome, especially if focused on DNA repair with therapeutic connections: DNA damage response (DDR) (epigenetics, transcriptional regulation, DNA repair syndromes, chromosomal translocations) and DDR-targeted drug discovery, or tumor resistance and/or vulnerabilities to clastogenic agents and/or DDR modulation.
Inflammation and infection biology
Role of the tissue microenvironment in the protection/ susceptibility to inflammatory and infectious diseases and impact on treatment. Development, differentiation and migration of immune cells. Biology of bacterial pathogens and antimicrobial immunity, with a particular yet non-exclusive focus on respiratory pathogens, addressing the mechanisms underlying pathogens’ virulence and host-pathogen interactions, immunity to pathogens, pathogens’ persistence, drug resistance or tolerance within the host.
Studies based on genome-wide/omics screens, high-resolution cell imaging, structure determination by X-ray, NMR, cryo-electron microscopy/tomography and other innovative approaches, addressing fundamental questions in molecular and cellular microbiology.
