[Celegans] Assistant Professor and Post-doc positions, Ewbank lab,
ewbank at ciml.univ-mrs.fr
Thu Feb 16 10:06:04 EST 2006
The Ewbank lab at the Marseille-Luminy Immunology Centre (CIML) uses
C. elegans as a model for studying host-pathogen interactions.
Subjects include bacterial virulence, behavioral responses to
pathogens and signalling pathways involved in the innate immune
response to infection. The laboratory benefits from interactions with
other groups at the CIML, one of Europe's leading immunology
institutes, as well as from the use of a dedicated functional
genomics platform (full-genome microarrays, worm sorter, robotics...).
Further details of the lab's research interests can be found at:
An Assistant Professor post (MCF) is now available. This post is
described more fully at
candidates that applied for the French national qualification at
section 65 before the 19th October 2005 will be eligible to apply.
In addition, the lab has funding for two post-doc positions. The
first is for up to three years and will involve identifying genes
required for the control of antimicrobial peptide gene expression.
The second, a two-year joint project with the lab of Eric Vivier at
the CIML involves establishing an in vivo screening system for the
identification of ligands for orphan vertebrate immune receptors.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience
according to institutional guidelines.
For both projects, experience with C. elegans and molecular biology
would be an advantage.
