  06 Pasteur  

Senior PostDoc position : computational biologist, Paris, France 

The ParSig team (https://research.pasteur.fr/en/team/molecular-parasitology-and-signaling) at the Institut Pasteur in Paris seeks for a highly qualified computational biologist at the senior postdoc/research assistant level to join the ERC Synergy project DecoLeishRN (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101071613). The successful candidate should have at least 3 years of postdoc experience in the fields of bioinformatics and population genetics and should be motivated to establish a cutting-edge project that will serve as a springboard to independence.

The selected candidate will join and collaborate with a vibrant, international team that applies experimental evolution to study mechanisms of fitness gain in the eukaryotic pathogen Leishmania. In particular, the candidate will (i) apply and further develop our previously established bioinformatics pipeline (GIP, Bussotti et al., NAR 2022, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmc8989552/ [ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]), (ii) integrate various large data sets generated by short-read, long-read and single cell DNAseq and RNAseq analyses during parasite evolution in vitro and in vivo, and (iii) establish new computational tools in collaboration with local resources and with our partner at the Weizmann Institute of Sciences to study the evolution of regulatory networks underlying Leishmania fitness gain. Wet lab experience is not required, but a solid background in biology will be of advantage.

Application

Interested candidates should send a motivation letter, CV (including 3 names for references) and list of publications to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. This call will be open until a suitable candidate has been recruited.

  04 CIRAD  

Researcher in Livestock Immunology for the Study of Animal Trypanosomoses 

Through a One Health approach, the Intertryp Joint Research Unit (Cirad-IRD) is developing research on interactions between hosts, parasites, vectors, microbiomes and the environment in neglected tropical diseases caused by trypanosomatids, including animal trypanosomoses, which are a significant burden on agriculture and livestock farming, particularly in Africa. The unit produces new basic knowledge, innovates and develops tools for monitoring and controlling trypanosomatid diseases, supports public policies and contributes to training and strengthening research and health structures[ST1] . The Intertryp Joint Research Unit is the WHO Collaborating Centre for Human African Trypanosomiasis (HAT) and the OMSA Reference Laboratory for the diagnosis of animal trypanosomosis (AT). It works jointly with the FAO and the IAEA.

You will be recruited at Cirad in the Intertryp Joint Research Unit as a livestock immunologist for the study of animal trypanosomoses, which are vector-transmitted parasitic diseases.
