Project leader positions at IECB Bordeaux 2010

Project leader positions at IECB Bordeaux 2010

The European Institute of Chemistry and Biology, Institut Européen de Chimie
et Biologie (IECB) is a 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 hosts 17 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 (http://www.iecb.u-bordeaux.fr). The
scientific policy of the Institute is under the responsibility of an
International Scientific Board in charge of the selection of new group leaders.

IECB is recruiting PROJECT LEADERS in

We seek biochemists working on structure/function relationship of biological
macromolecules or on molecules of biomedical interest in particular in the
field of neurobiology.

We seek a molecular modelling chemist with a good practice in protein-ligand
and protein-protein interactions interested in developing innovative research
in biomedically relevant areas including cancer.

We seek a biochemist/biophysicist developing protein/nucleic acid scaffolds,
devices of potential interest in the field of technologies for health.

We are interested in projects on macromolecules or processes related to cell
cycle, gene expression or signal transduction in connection with human

We seek a chemist to develop a research program aiming at exploring biological
processes using the tools of organic synthesis.

We are looking for motivated young scientists who will demonstrate a
strong potential for the development of an ambitious research
programme. The applicants are expected to run independent and creative
projects. They should be open to interdisciplinary collaborations with
other groups of the Institute. Successful candidates will have access
to state of the art facilities in structural biology, chemistry,
molecular and cellular biology. The candidates might be asked to apply
for start-up funding such as ATIP-Avenir Inserm-CNRS programme or ANR
The applicants should be fluent in English. Knowledge of French would
be useful but not mandatory. Applicants are invited to submit -prior to
September 20, 2010- a detailed biography together with a research
project and a list of potential referees to: Dr Jean-Jacques Toulmé,
Director of IECB 2 rue Robert Escarpit 33607 Pessac Cedex, France
