The Institute of Viral and Liver Disease

JOB OFFERS 

 

Junior group leader  

The Inserm Unit U1110, Institute for Viral and Liver Diseaseand the Laboratory of Excellence HepSYS (Head: Prof. Thomas F. Baumert, MD), University of Strasbourg, France is recruiting a junior group leader with an excellent track record and research interest in the study of virus-host interactions.

The unit offers an ideal internationally renowned research environment for the career development and evolution of researchers. A key focus area of the unit is the molecular investigation of virus-host interactions and their relevance for disease biology. Core aims of the research unit are the investigation of the mechanisms of virus-induced inflammation and cancer and to develop novel preventive or therapeutic approaches.

The junior group leader that join our unit will benefit from our state-of-the-art infrastructure of the unit and a world-class scientific environment at Inserm and the University of Strasbourg. Financial support is possible through the LabEx HEPSYS, Inserm ATIP-AVENIR and the IDEX university programs. Furthermore, the candidate will have the opportunity to participate in the Inserm and University of Strasbourg faculty tenure track programs.

To apply, please send your CV (including experience, publications and academic references) and a brief statement of research interests to 

Prof. Thomas Baumert

Post-doctoral positions in virus-host interactions and liver disease 

Two post-doctoral positions are open at the Inserm Unit U1110, Institute for Viral and Liver Disease and the Laboratory of Excellence HepSYS (Head: Prof. Thomas F. Baumert, MD), University of Strasbourg, France. The unit offers an internationally renowned research environment with strong liaisons to industry and is located in an excellent infrastructure on the university campus. The unit focusses on the study of virus-host interactions including the development of novel antivirals and vaccines as well as compounds to prevent and treat virus-associated inflammation and cancer (see Zona et al. Cell Host & Microbe 2013; Lupberger et al. Hepatology 2013, Fofana et al. J. Virol. 2013, Fofana et al. Gastroenterology 2012, Da Costa et al. J. Virol. 2012, Lupberger, Zeisel et al. Nature Medicine 2011, Fafi-Kremer et al. J. Exp. Med. 2010, Fofana et al. Gastroenterology 2010). The positions are funded by EU programs.

One project focusses on the study of hepatitis B virus infection in cell culture and animal models using functional genomics to identify novel targets and strategies for viral cure. The second project aims to investigate the biological circuits implicated in virus-induced liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma for the identification of novel strategies for cancer prevention.

We are looking for candidates (PhD or MD) with a strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, virology, immunology, genomics, cancer or clinical hepatology/virology, good communication skills and an interest to work in a well-funded international and young research laboratory in an outstanding scientific environment. English proficiency is mandatory while French is not a prerequisite. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to participate in the Inserm and University of Strasbourg faculty tenure track programs.

Bioinformatician position 

A bioinformatician position is open at the Inserm Unit U1110, Institute for Viral and Liver Disease and the Laboratory of Excellence HepSYS (Head: Prof. Thomas F. Baumert, MD), University of Strasbourg, France. The unit offers an internationally renowned research environment with strong liaisons to industry. Located in an excellent infrastructure on the university campus, we use functional genomics to model and understand the biological circuits during virus-host interactions and disease biology (see Zona et al. Cell Host & Microbe 2013; Lupberger et al. Hepatology 2013, Da Costa et al. J. Virol. 2012, Fofana et al. Gastroenterology 2012, Lupberger, Zeisel et al. Nature Medicine 2011, Fafi-Kremer et al. J. Exp. Med. 2010, Benga et al. Hepatology 2010, Fofana et al. Gastroenterology 2010, Lambotin et al. Nature Rev. Microbiol. 2010).

We are looking for candidates with a strong background in bioinformatics and an interest in applying systems biology approaches to study viral infection and disease biology including the pathogenesis of chronic liver disease and virus-induced cancer. Good communication skills and English proficiency are mandatory while French is not a prerequisite. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to enter the Inserm and University of Strasbourg faculty or research engineer tenure track programs for further career development.
