INAF is a leading European Institute in Neuroscience, with 20 research groups working on various approaches of brain function. The 12 groups of the Neurobiology & Development (N&D) research unit ((http://www.inaf.cnrs-gif.fr/ned/home-page.html) focus on the analysis of brain development and evolution, neurogenesis, integrative neurobiology and behavior, using various model organisms. N&D is seeking to recruit a research group led by an outstanding (junior/senior) investigator in the field of Neurogenetics with invertebrate animals as model systems.
INAF is part of the Gif-sur-Yvette CNRS research center which gathers ~1000 scientists in life sciences and chemistry in a green campus located 40 min from downtown Paris. The center benefits from funding of the CNRS and is closely associated with the nearby Université Paris Sud Orsay. The laboratories of the center benefit from a multi-species animal facility and are supported by the IMAGIF core facility, which provides a wide range of state-of-the-art technical services, including genomics, proteomics, and high end microscopy.
The selected group leader will receive lab space and will benefit from INAF/N&D infrastructures, in addition to assistance for applications to calls for starting grants such as ATIP-Avenir (INSERM/CNRS) and for a permanent position at CNRS if needed. INAF laboratories will move to the new Paris-Saclay Neuroscience Institute in 2017.
Applications will include: CV with publications, summary of scientific achievements and research program (5 pages), 3 recommendation letters.
Deadline for applications: July 5th, 2013.
Interviews of short-listed applicants in September 2013
Decisions announced by September 25.
Applications should be sent to P. Vernier (email@example.com) and F. Rouyer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
