A Group leader position is open at the Institut de Biologie Valrose (iBV), Nice, France. We are seeking a candidate to develop independent research on the molecular bases of disease processes and with the potential to establish collaborative networks with local clinicians. Candidates combining system-level approaches with functional studies aimed at disease mechanisms are particularly encouraged to apply.

The candidate will benefit from dedicated lab and office spaces located at the Pasteur campus, as well as from free access to the iBV state-of-the-art technology platforms, including microscopy, cytometry, histology, bioinformatics, synthetic biology and animal facility infrastructures. He/she will be strongly supported by the iBV to obtain an institutional permanent position and apply for a competitive start-up package. The iBV is committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusivity and encourages female applicants.

The iBV is an internationally recognized institute, presently hosting 27 research groups, with 30 different nationalities, using English as a working language (http://ibv.unice.fr/). 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-derived material. The iBV is part of the University Côte d’Azur, which is currently structuring and strengthening its expertise in complex data analysis, a process the candidate is expected to contribute to.

Interested candidates should send their application to ibv.direction@univ-cotedazur.fr before the 10th of September. Applications should be submitted as a single pdf and contain a curriculum vitae with 2-3 reference contacts, a short description of achievements and a research program of maximum 5 pages. Interviews are scheduled for October.
