Training Experience Required
MSc degree with a research experience is compulsory.
Institut Curie dates back to 1909, when Marie Curie implemented in the heart of Paris her bench-to-bedside vision of a research-care continuum. A leading player in the fight against cancer, the internationally renowned Institut Curie combines a Research Center and a Hospital Group that provides care for all types of cancers - including the rarest forms.
By embracing a crossdisciplinary approach, researchers and physicians develop together cancer-focused basic, translational and clinical research to discover more effective treatments and improve care for patients.
Institut Curie has established itself as being at the forefront of research on epigenetics. The FP7 EU Network of Excellence EpiGeneSys was coordinated by G. Almouzni from October 2010 to March 2016. Institut Curie research teams have also been awarded multiple ERC grants in the field of epigenetics (EPOCH28, ECCENTRIC, EPIGENETIX, EPIREPRO, CDNF, ChromADICT, ...) and participated in collaborative EU projects (MODHEP, EPIGENOME). Notably, the Institut Curie is now engaged in a new European FET Flagship initiative (https://lifetime-fetflagship.eu/) which currently brings together 17 Beneficiaries and 3 Linked Third Parties in 15 countries.
The fellow will have access to 16 technology platforms recently centralized in the in-house Curie CoreTech (CTT) which covers biological complexity ranging from small molecules to whole organisms. CTT manages access, provides service support and the latest scientific know-how.
