The INSERM has just launched a call for the recruitment of 12 Junior professors.

The Junior Professorships (CPJ) are intended for researchers with strong potential to manage and lead research teams, as well as to participate in international projects.
These tenure-track positions are based on fixed-term contracts (from 3 to 6 years), and should lead to permanent INSERM positions (as Research Directors).

One position is open at the “Institut du thorax” in Nantes University, under the title : “Risk prediction models for cardiovascular diseases”
We aim at attracting an emerging leader in computational biology willing to develop and apply novel statistical/numerical approaches based on multi-scale data.

More information on the call and on the open positions is available at: https://sp2013.inserm.fr/sites/eva/appels-a-projets/cpj/cpj_2022/Pages/default.aspx

A post-doctoral fellow position is available to study neuromodulation and behavior in Drosophila at the NIMH, Bethesda (USA)

Postdoc Position to Study the Neuromodulatory Organization of Brain Circuit Activity and Behavior

Benjamin White’s laboratory at the National Institute of Mental Health (Bethesda, Maryland, USA) would welcome a postdoctoral fellow interested in pursuing questions related to the neuromodulatory control of behavioral state.  We seek to broadly understand how neuromodulators act in concert to organize neural circuit activity and produce behavior. Additionally, we are interested in how neuromodulatory mechanisms of behavioral control change over development and evolution. Working in Drosophila, we use a variety of approaches to tackle these questions including brain-wide neuronal imaging by light-sheet microscopy, whole-body muscle activity imaging, computational modeling, single-cell RNA sequencing, and state-of-the-art circuit-mapping. Several circuit-mapping approaches used in Drosophila were developed in the lab including Split Gal, Trojan exons, and SpaRCLIN.

Our research focuses on the developmentally malleable and highly evolvable behaviors that govern insect molting and recent projects have been directed toward identifying neuromodulatory neurons that regulate behavioral transitions (Diao et al., 2017, eLife), comprehensively characterizing behavior at single-muscle resolution (Elliott et al., 2021, eLife), and deconstructing mechanisms underlying behavioral decision-making (Diao, 2020, BioRxiv). Opportunities exist to pursue research in these and other areas. Creative project ideas are not only welcome, but encouraged!  

Interested candidates should send a CV and a short summary of their research experience and future goals to benjaminwhite@mail.nih.gov


Post-Doctoral Research Fellow position open at UCL, London (UK)

UCL – Institute of Healthy Ageing, Research Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment

Salary:£36,770 to £39,843 per annum
Hours:Full Time
Contract Type:Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On:4th May 2022
Closes:5th June 2022
Job Ref:1884089

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7.

Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the group of Jürg Bähler to study conserved but unknown proteins associated with cellular ageing in fission yeast. The project will uncover new proteins contributing to the natural diversity in chronological lifespan among wild yeast strains and investigate particular roles played by selected proteins in ageing-associated processes, which could include experiments in turquoise killifish, a new vertebrate ageing model. This research will apply diverse wet and dry approaches, including quantitative genetics, large-scale functional assays as well as cellular and biochemical methods. Information about the Bähler lab is available here: http://bahlerlab.info/.

The post is funded for 4 years in the first instance.

Applicants should have a PhD degree (or PhD examination planned at time of application), a strong research track record, and expertise in a relevant field (e.g. yeast genetics/genomics, cell/molecular biology, biology of ageing). They should be curious, open-minded and highly motivated to pursue research into fundamental biological processes.

For informal enquiries about the post, please contact Professor Jürg Bähler: j.bahler@ucl.ac.uk.

If you have any queries regarding the application process please contact Biosciences staffing on biosciences.staffing@ucl.ac.uk quoting the vacancy reference number: 1884089.

Latest time for the submission of applications: 23:59.

PhD student and post-doctoral positions available in Gene regulation, CIG, UNIL (CH)

The Gambetta lab is recruiting a PhD student and Postdoctoral researcher to study how 3D genome folding correctly wires genes to their regulatory elements.


  1. How do genes connect to their regulatory elements millions of base pairs away? We found that specific genes loop to distal loci dynamically during development. We study how these loops form and how they regulate
  2. How is regulatory cross talk prevented? We recently demonstrated that insulator proteins form physical and regulatory boundaries in the
    fly genome. We now study the molecular mechanisms of
    insulator proteins.
    We use genetics (genomeengineering, screens), genomics (transcriptomics, chromatin accessibility, chromosome conformation
    capture, genome-wide screens, single-cell genomics), imaging (fixed and live), and biochemistry (proteomics).
    For more information: http://www.gambettalab.org

Job information
Expected start date: as soon as possible or as agreed
Contract length: 1 year, renewable 2 x 2 years (maximum 5 years)

Your responsibilities
You will work independently on one of two projects proposed. You will use multidisciplinary approaches in the fruitfly Drosophila. You will present your results during seminars with gene regulation research labs in Lausanne. You will get some exposure to teaching, supervising laboratory practicals for UNIL students (~2 weeks per year). Full funding for the
positions is available, but application to fellowships is also expected.

Your qualifications
You are a dynamic and rigorous scientist with a PhD degree in Biology or a related discipline. You have experience in molecular biology, genetics, genomics, biochemistry or imaging. You are a critical thinker, a team player eager to participate in scientific discussions but able to work independently. You have a strong interest in developing your skills in multidisciplinary experimental strategies to understand basic mechanisms in gene regulation.

Your benefits
The Gambetta lab is hosted at the Center for Integrative Genomics (CIG) at the University of Lausanne (UNIL), a vibrant, well-funded institute with a focus on functional genomics and equipped with modern core facilities (see www.unil.ch/cig).
