A postdoc position is available in the new research group “
Cell death and epithelial
homeostasis
” in the d
epartment of Developmental and Stem Cell bi
ology of the Institut

Pasteur in Paris (France).

The group

will be launched in De
cember 2016. We

are

generally
interested by the regulation of cell death in epithelial context and its contribution to tissue
plasticity. We are currently working on two main aspects: the role of mechanical forces in
apoptosis induction and its contributio
n to morphogenesis and competition between cells, and
the orchestration
of

epithelial cell death by effector caspases. For this, we use the fruitfly
Drosophila Melanogaster

as a model system, and combine various
cutting edge
approaches
from live imaging,
image analysis, laser perturbation
s
,
genetics and simulations.

The position will be funded for 3 years through the starting package of
the
In
s
titut Pasteur (with
possibility of extension)

and would ideally

start in March
-
April 2017. The objective is
to
characterise the pathway(s) responsible for death i
nduction upon cell compaction and its
contribution to competitive interactions between cells
. More information can be found on the
lab webpage (
www.levayerlab.com
).

We seek highly motivated candidates with interests in cell and developmental biology and a

good working knowledge in live imaging and image analysis. Ideally, the candidate should be
comfortable with quantitative approaches and have basic knowledge in programming. Previous
experience with
Drosophila

is a plus, but is not mandatory.

The project

is open to discussion
as long as it is connected to the

current topics of the laboratory.

The Pasteur institute, located in the center of Paris, has a long standing history of excellence
in Cell and Developmental biology and offer
s

access to cutting edge

technologies through
various platforms.

If you are interested, please contact Romain Levayer (

state
ment of your research interests
, your CV and up to 3
recommendation

contacts.
