A 3-year postdoctoral position is available to join a newly established research program within the Department of Virology of the Institut Pasteur, Paris.
Our hypothesis is that human cells express unique sets of coding and non-coding genes that exhibit potent inhibitory activities against RNA viruses. Our objectives are to identify and characterize these genes by combining an original approach that compares the total transcriptome changes in virally infected and neighboring uninfected cells with exhaustive and reference-free transcriptome analysis, loss-of-function screening strategies and mechanistic studies.
Candidates must hold a PhD degree in Biological Sciences. They must have experience with next-generation sequencing and computational analysis. Background in biology of non-coding genes will be advantageous. Candidates should have strong communication and organization skills and willing to work independently. English language is required.
