CIRI, Center for Infectiology Research INSERM U1111–CNRS UMR5308 - Université Lyon 1– ENS Lyon, France

We are currently inviting applications from enthusiastic and independent post-doctoral candidates to participate in our ANR LabEx-funded project (a fully funded 2-year postdoc position).

The research program centers on viruses of the flaviviridae family (Dengue, zika virus, HCV) and the activation of the innate immune response via the sensing of infected cells, as well as viral strategies for immune evasion.

Environment: The lab is part of the CIRI, a center for infectious disease research, which promotes an integrated approach in the study of host-pathogen interactions, connecting researchers in disparate fields ranging from immunology, virology, bacteriology, epidemiology, etc.. The lab provides state-of-the-art facilities to perform cellular and molecular biology, biochemistry, as well as Biosafety Level 3 laboratories and animal housing. It is situated on the Campus Charles Mérieux, a research campus endowed with strong basic biology sciences, with a particular dedication to research in infectious diseases. The host lab is also part of the Ecofect LabEx (Laboratory of Excellence, labeled by the Ministry of Research).

The applicants are expected to have a strong background in molecular and cellular biology. Prior experience in virology and/or immunology and international training is highly advantageous. The ideal candidate should be highly motivated, curious and enthusiastic to work in a collaborative team. A proven ability to identify key research objectives and meet agreed deadlines, in addition to self-motivation, flexibility, and assistance with ongoing projects in the lab are essential. Excellent written and communication skills in English is a requirement.
