Job description


The Chromatin Dynamics Team (UMR 3664-CNRS) led by Dr G. Almouzni explores how chromatin organization from its elementary bricks (histone variants and nucleosomes) up to chromosomal landmarks and nuclear architecture functionally impacts/ adapts to cell physiology

We aim to define the control of the molecular interactions between histone chaperones and histone variants and how they act as a flexible network to assemble, maintain or change chromatin states during normal (development, differentiation) and pathological (cancer) changes of cell fate. We combine various biological models from cells to tissue with experimental approaches involving biochemistry, imaging and omics.

Objective will be to characterize at the single molecule resolution the localization of histone variants and chromatin regulators in live and fixed nuclei of cells undergoing changes of fate and DNA transaction events such as replication, transcription, repair. In these physiological contexts, dynamics and spatial organization of chromosomal loci and euchromatin/heterochromatin domains will be investigated.


Candidate profile

Motivated Candidate should be trained in cell biology and demonstrate expertise in cell culture that must include ES cells / 3D cell culture (organoids/embryoids). Know-how of sample preparation and acquisition of Super-Resolution images is mandatory. Additional experience with data processing for image rendering and physical parameters s will be highly appreciated.

Successful candidate will join an experienced team composed of staff scientists, post-doctoral researchers and students in a vibrant international scientific community at the Institut Curie in Paris. Access to multidisciplinary approaches, new technologies and advanced training programs as well as career development and networking opportunities is provided.


All our opportunities are open to people with disabilities.
