Institut Pasteur (Paris, France) announces an international call for a mid-career (equivalent to associate professor/senior lecturer) group leader position in the field of Computational Biology.

The role of this new research group will be to reinforce the capacity of the Institute in computational biology. We are looking for a mid-career group leader in bioinformatics, biostatistics or integrative biology, with a strong methodological component and proven ability to collaborate. Research projects on computational and statistical analysis of biological “big data”, typically produced by -omics technologies or large-scale biobanks will be particularly welcome. However, all modeling and computational approaches of biological questions closely connected with Institut Pasteur research areas are eligible. This includes, but is not limited to, the field of disease emergence in populations and in individuals, also supported by the Inception program.

Successful applicants will enjoy the vibrant interdisciplinary environment offered within the Department of Computational Biology. Further information can be found at: research.pasteur.fr/en/department/computational-biology/ and candidates are also encouraged to contact the head of Department Dr. Christophe Zimmer (christophe.zimmer@pasteur.fr).

Institut Pasteur is located in central Paris and offers an unparalleled research environment through its state-of-the-art research laboratories combining fundamental and translational research, integral biological services capability, cutting-edge scientific equipment, and advanced technology platforms (research.pasteur.fr/en/).

Applications will be evaluated on the basis of scientific excellence. Successful candidates will be appointed to a permanent position. In addition, highly attractive packages to match the experience of the candidate will be provided, including institutional salaries (principal investigator, technician or engineer, secretary, postdoctoral fellows), a substantial contribution to running costs and equipment, access to on campus state-of-the-art technology core facilities, as well as support for relocation expenses and administrative matters.

The template for the application can be downloaded on the call website: research.pasteur.fr/en/call/senior-group-leader-position-at-institut-pasteur/

Applications should be sent as a single pdf file to: MC_CBIP@pasteur.fr
