IECB is looking for outstanding candidates in Cancer research with the support of SIRIC Brio (https://siric-brio.com/en/) and IdEx Bordeaux (http://idex.u-bordeaux.fr).

The European Institute of Chemistry and Biology,Institut Européen de Chimie et Biologie(IECB,www.iecb.u-bordeaux.fr) is a research team incubator placed under the joint authority of the University of Bordeaux, CNRS and INSERM. It benefits from the strong scientific environment of the Bordeaux campus in the Southwest of France. The Institute hosts 15 research groups working at the interface of chemistry and biology in a recent building (6000 sq meters) with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. The scientific policy of the institute is under the responsibility of an International Scientific Advisory Board, in charge of the selection of new group leaders.

We seek chemists, biochemists, Molecular or Cell Biologists or pharmacologists well versed in the practice of translational cancer research and capable of contributing towards the understanding and modulation of biological functions involved in cancer. Outstanding candidates with experience in molecular modeling, target validation, assay and drug design are particularly welcome.

Applicants are expected to run independent and creative projects. They should be open to interdisciplinary collaborations with other groups of the Institute. Successful candidates will have access to IECB’s facilities in structural biology, chemistry, molecular and cellular biology. Additional support may be sought for through regional, national and international calls.

The applicants should be fluent in English. Knowledge of French is not mandatory. Applicants are invited to submit - prior to May 4, 2015 - a detailed biography and publication record together with a 5 page summary of research achievements and projects as well as a list of potential referees to Dr. Jean-Louis Mergny ( Cette adresse email est protégée contre les robots des spammeurs, vous devez activer Javascript pour la voir. ).
