Post-doctoral Research Scientist (CARMMA-Project): INSERM U955, University of Paris-Est, Creteil, France

Posted by: INSERM U955, Faculty of Medicine, University Paris-Est Creteil

Posted date: Jan-13-2016

Location: Creteil-France

The “Drug Discovery and Cell Therapy” group led by Dr. Roberto Motterlini is looking for a highly skilled and enthusiastic post-doctoral fellow working in a dynamic, international and interactive environment. The position is available from May-June 2016 and will be funded for 3 years by an RHU collaborative grant (CARMMA).

The laboratory is focussing its research on the therapeutic properties of the protein heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) in the cardiovascular system and aims at exploiting this pathway as a target for the discovery of new pharmacological approaches. The project will focus on investigating the effect of adipose tissue on cardiac bioenergetics and inflammation. We will examine the effect of new chemical entities targeting HO-1 in order to evaluate their therapeutic efficacy against obesity. The successful candidate will be integrated in a multidisciplinary environment embracing chemistry, biology and pharmacology.

Highly motivated and dynamic candidates are encouraged to apply and should have a PhD with strong background in obesity, mitochondrial metabolism and inflammation and appropriate skills in models of high fat diet-induced obesity. The candidate will have knowledge of a variety of approaches spanning from molecular biology to in vivo experimentation and analyses of tissue samples. Candidates should have proven experience on a wide range of methodological techniques in vitro (including cell culture, western blotting, PCR, ELISA and biochemical assays) but mandatory for this position will be a robust experience in in vivo models.

Individuals who are interested in the post should email a Curriculum Vitae indicating the project acronym (CARMMA) with a letter of motivation, research interests, technical skills and the name and email of three referees to: Dr. Roberto Motterlini, Faculty of Medicine, University Paris-Est Creteil, France; roberto.motterlini(at)inserm.fr.
