The Evolutionary Genomics of RNA Viruses group at Institut Pasteur in Paris is hiring multiple postdoctoral fellows (experimental and bioinformatics) on viral outbreak preparedness and response.
Emerging infectious disease (EID) outbreaks have increased significantly in the past decades, both in terms of size and number of causative pathogens. The unexpected nature, sometimes high case fatality rate, the uncertainty of sources and modes of transmission, and the paucity of medical and non-medical countermeasures make EIDs a threat to global human and animal health.
Our laboratory is planning to develop several experimental and bioinformatics projects primarily focusing on RNA viruses, especially respiratory viruses. The main themes for the projects will be:
Applicants should hold a PhD in fields relevant to the project (such as virology, evolutionary or molecular biology, computational biology, phylodynamics).
Scientific rigor, organizational skills, high motivation, English proficiency and ability to work collaboratively in an interdisciplinary environment are essential.
The lab provides a stimulating and multicultural environment with access to high-end instrumentation and close collaborations with Institut Pasteur and the Pasteur Network teams. The lab also hosts the French National Reference Center for viruses of respiratory infections for Northern France .
The potential research projects are not necessarily restricted to the listed themes and initiatives that fit or complement our laboratory expertise can be discussed.
The positions are for up to four years., and some positions are offered in the context of the upcoming EU-funded (HERA) DURABLE program, focused on preparedness to the increasing complexity of EID threats by coordinating efforts of multiple European laboratories.
Candidates should send in a single pdf: a cover letter including a brief description of their scientific achievements and research interests, their CV and contact information for 2 references to etienne.simon-lorierepasteur.fr.
