The “Cancer, Heterogeneity, Instability and Plasticity” unit (U830) at Institut Curie is recruiting a junior group leader wishing to address questions on fundamental mechanisms of cancer (“hallmarks of cancer”) using pediatric cancers as model systems and/or investigating molecular bases of childhood cancers. Important criteria for the selection of the candidates will be the outstanding quality of their scientific record and project, as well as their capacity to interface with biologists and clinicians in the research and clinical departments and beyond, and to drive developments in the field of biomedical research on cancer, the main mission of Institut Curie.

The unit is located at the Institut Curie joint clinical/research campus in central Paris. The six current research groups investigate basic mechanisms of cancer initiation, progression and/or resistance to treatment with particular focus on genetic and epigenetic alterations, tumor microenvironment, DNA repair and computational biology.

The newly recruited group will benefit from state-of-the-art research equipment. Appropriate laboratory space for 6-7 people and a start-up package will also be available.

The successful candidate should meet the criteria to compete for national and international funding, and for French institutional research positions (University or INSERM).
