Post-Doc Position - Roles of Iron in the Epigenetic Regulation of EMT and the Maintenance of Cancer Stem Cells

The Chemical Cell Biology Group, based at Institut Curie in Paris, is recruiting post-doctoral researchers to study the epigenetic regulation of the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition mediated by iron in the context of cancer. This program is based on our recent finding that iron homeostasis is up-regulated in breast cancer stem-like cells and may act as an EMT driver. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary research environment including cell biology and chemistry, and will have access to unique tailor-made chemical probes as well as cutting-edge cell imaging and next generation sequencing facilities. The candidate is expected to have confirmed expertise in cell biology, chromatin biology, epigenetics and cancer. Expertise in genome editing and NGS is welcome. Applicants should send their CV along with a cover letter and contact details of at least two academic references to raphael.rodriguez@curie.fr.
