The Pasteur Museum is housed in the apartment where Louis Pasteur spent his final seven years and offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the living and working environment of the world-renowned scientist. Visitors can gain a unique insight into his everyday life alongside his wife and can admire his rich and diverse scientific work.
The Institut Pasteur’s scientific strategy focuses on developing original and innovative topics and promoting interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary cooperation and approaches. The Institut Pasteur teams have access to the technological resources needed to speed up and further improve the quality of their outstanding research.
Ever since the introduction of the world’s first "Technical Microbiology" course in 1889, teaching has been a priority for the Institut Pasteur. The Institut Pasteur has an international reputation for quality teaching that attracts students from all over the world who come to further their training or top up their degree programs.
The mission of the Industrial Partnership team is to detect, promote, assist and protect the inventive activities from research (inventions, know-how and biological materials) conducted at the Institut Pasteur (and in some Institutes of its international network), and transfer there to industrial and/or institutional partners, in order to serve the patient needs and for the benefit of the society, as well as to contribute to sustainability of the Institut Pasteur’s resources.
With international courses, PhD and postdoctoral traineeship, each institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) contributes to the transmission of knowledge with the training of young researchers all around the world. In this context, doctoral and postdoctoral programmes, study and traineeship fellowships are available to scientists. Alongside training, dynamism and attractiveness of RIIP will result in the creation of 4-year group for the young researchers.
The Institut Pasteur is hiring a director and 2 senior group leaders for its new Center of Bioinformatics, Biostatistics and Integrative Biology.
Institut Pasteur is a non-profit private foundation dedicated to fundamental research in human biology and the prevention and treatment of disease, with a large focus on infectious diseases, through basic science, education, and public health activities. The Paris campus houses 146 research units belonging to 10 research departments, employing about 2,600 people. It is recognized worldwide as a leader in infectious disease research and is ranked as a top level institution for publication impact in the field of microbiology. Institut Pasteur has developed a world-class technological center, its "Technopole" composed of 10 state-of-the-art technological platforms, which closely collaborate with the researchers and cover their needs for studying modern biology from genomic to post-genomic activities, including bioinformatics, genotyping, DNA and protein sequencing, transcriptomics, proteomics, protein and antibody production, crystallography and X ray diffraction, macromolecular interactions, collections, animal facilities and an exceptional imaging centre (Imagopole).
The new direction of the Institut Pasteur has defined Bioinformatics/ biostatistics and integrative biology as strategic priorities. In this frame, the Pasteur Institute is seeking an outstanding scientist to direct a newly created “Centre of Bioinformatics, Biostatistics and Integrative Biology” located on the Paris campus. The goal of this Center is to federate, from a computational biology perspective, the different but highly complementary research themes that are present on the Campus: genomics of hosts and pathogens, infection biology, evolutionary and population genetics, structural biology, developmental and stem cell biology, immunology, neurosciences and human health. In addition to directing the new Center, the successful candidate shall have his/her own research group, in order to pursue his/her scientific interests. To accomplish this double duty, the candidate will receive substantial financial support, both in running costs and personnel, from the Pasteur Institute. In this context, the Institut is also opening two additional senior group leader positions in these fields to increase the size of its community and its visibility.
Successful candidates will possess the following qualifications:
PhD with a minimum of 10 years post-doctoral research experience.
Recognized scientific leadership in bioinformatics and computational biology
Broad experience in methodological development for the analysis of various types of data
Consistent record of cutting edge research as evidenced by senior author publications in top journals
Significant experience in managing and mentoring scientists, and in designing and executing an innovative research program
Demonstrated ability to collaborate with scientists irrespective of their computational or experimental background
The application should comprise the following (in order) in a single pdf file:
A brief introductory letter.
A Curriculum Vitae and a full publication list.
A description of past and present research activities (4-5 pages with 1.5 spacing).
The proposed research project (8-10 pages with 1.5 spacing).
Further information on the institute its facilities can be found on the web site http://www.pasteur.fr. Applications should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org Mai 31 2014. Short-listed candidates will be invited for interview in September 2014 and decisions will be announced by early October 2014.
