Project Leader position in Structural Biology

Project Leader position in Structural Biology

The European Institute of Chemistry and Biology, “Institut Européen de
Chimie et Biologie” (IECB) is a recently created research institute
sponsored by the University of Bordeaux, CNRS and INSERM. It is located
on the University of Bordeaux campus in the Southwest of France. The
Institute already hosts 15 research groups working at the interface of
chemistry and biology in a new building (6000 sq meters) with state of
the art equipment and facilities. Several on-site spectrometers include
a liquid/solid 700 MHz, and the arrival of an 800 Mhz spectrometer
predicted for later this year. The scientific policy of the Institute is
under the responsibility of an International Scientific Board which is
responsible for the selection of new group leaders.

IECB is recruiting a PROJECT LEADER within the field of STRUCTURAL

We seek biochemists working on structure/function relationship of
biological macromolecules or on molecules of biomedical interest in
particular in the field of neurobiology. The candidate will be asked to
apply for start-up funding from ATIP-Avenir Inserm-CNRS programme.
Deadline, April 16.

We are looking for motivated young scientists who will demonstrate a
strong potential for the development of an ambitious research programme.
The applicant is expected to run independent and creative projects. They
should be open to interdisciplinary collaborations with other groups of
the Institute. The successful candidate will benefit from a strong
financial support (including post-doctoral salary and/or PhD fellowship)
for the first two years. They will have access to state of the art
facilities in structural biology, chemistry, molecular and cellular
biology. The applicants should be fluent in English. Knowledge of French
would be useful but not mandatory.

Applicants are invited to submit a detailed biography together with a
research project and a list of potential referees to: Dr Jean-Jacques
Toulmé, Scientific Director of IECB – 2 rue Robert Escarpit 33607 Pessac
