Postdoc positions are open in the Centre of Infection and Immunity of Lille at the Institut Pasteur de Lille.
The candidates will conduct research in collaboration with the TB experts of the CIIL (A. Baulard, P. Brodin, R. Hartkoorn, Ph. Supply, C. Locht), in association with a large national consortium of 9 laboratories and more
than 50 experts, developing a set of highly innovative and synergistic antibiotic molecules targeting M. tuberculosis.
This project called Mustart (Multiparametric Strategies against Antibiotic Resistance in Tuberculosis) is supported by the French program “Investments for the Future” 1 .
Mustart is seeking for a senior postdoc researcher able to synergize the scientific activities of the various partners, with guidance and support of Dr Alain Baulard (Up to 4-year contract). Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in biochemistry, molecular biology, biomedical engineering or related areas. A strong expertise in molecular and cellular microbiology is mandatory. Previous experience in mycobacteriology would obviously be a plus.
The Mustart project is also recruiting a junior postdoc researcher (2½ – year contract) with a Ph.D. in biochemistry or in molecular biology. Experience in DNA cloning and recombineering in mycobacteria is a major asset.
Our lab, located at the Institut Pasteur de Lille has unlimited access to state-of-the-art imaging, omics, biophysics, HTS-HCS, ADME and BSL3 facilities. We offer a nice working place in a multicultural, diverse and dynamic academic environment. Lille is a vibrant city in the north of France, strategically located in the heart of Europe (1hr from Paris, London or Brussels).
