Centre de Recherche

The Institut Curie Research CenterInstitut Curie (https://institut-curie.org) is composed of a hospital and world-class multidisciplinary research center, combining research in cell biology, genetics, epigenetics, immunology, soft matter physics, organic and medicinal chemistry. It includes over 3,300 researchers, physicians, clinicians, technicians and administrative staff working on three sites: Paris, Orsay and Saint-Cloud. The Institute is equipped with state-of-the art facilities, including a microscopy and live imaging platform, single cell and spatial transcriptomics, proteomics and mass spectrometry and animal housing (https://science.institut-curie.org/platforms/). In addition, researchers have access to the large clinical databases and sample collections of the hospital.

Institut Curie will recruit a Junior Group Leader in the field of Immunology, with a research program focused on basic and/or translational science. Relevance to cancer will be positively considered.

The successful applicant will join the U932 INSERM “Immunity and Cancer” Unit (https://u932.curie.fr/en). It currently includes 8 senior and 2 junior research teams. All have broad interests in the fields of innate and adaptive immunology, from the most fundamental aspects of immune cell biology and biophysics to mechanistic aspects of immune responses in animal models and to translational and clinical immunology in the context of infection and cancer. A joint appointment with the Curie hospital can be envisioned, where the “Center for Cancer Immunotherapy” facilitates the transfer of discoveries from bench to bedside.

The newly recruited group leader will benefit from the highly competitive scientific environment of the Unit and the Institute, and from state-of-the-art research equipment and platforms. Laboratory space for 6-7 people will be available as well as a starting package. The successful candidate should meet the criteria to compete for national and international funding, and for French institutional research positions (University, INSERM).
