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.
One position for postdoc or PhD student is available in the stroma team of the Lymphoid Tissue Development (LTD) Unit to study the regulation of immune responses by stromal cells, in particular in chronic pathologies such as fibrosis and cancer. We have previously shown that inflammatory lesions need to develop a specialized gp38+ stromal network to organize the recruitment and survival of lymphocytes (Peduto et al., JI 2009). We further identified a subset of gp38+ stromal cell induced by inflammation, co-expressing ADAM12 and PDGFRα, as a major source for scar tissue after acute injury (Dulauroy et al., Nature Medicine 2012). We now aim at deciphering the underlying mechanism(s), and how dysregulation of a proper stromal balance contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic diseases.

The LTD Unit is recruiting one postdoctoral fellow to study the regulation of the microbiota, metabolism and adaptive immune system by innate lymphoid cells (ILCs). We have shown how ILCs develop from common lymphoid progenitors, and fate-mapped the ILC3 lineage (Sawa, Science 2010, Cherrier, JEM 2012). We have also shown how microbiota regulates the activity of ILCs (Sawa, Nat Immunol, 2011) and the role of type 3 immunity in maintaining intestinal homeostasis (Lochner, JEM 2011). We now wish to understand the role of ILCs in the regulation of microbiota, metabolism and adaptive immunity using a series of newly developed mouse models. Please send applications to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The positions are open for 2015. Applicants should have a strong background in cellular immunology, cell biology or physiology, be highly motivated to do research in these competitive and exciting areas, and show an innate ability to work as a team. Experience in transcriptional analysis, multi-parameter flow cytometry and/or mouse models are highly desirable. The LTD Unit enjoys numerous collaborations with researchers on campus and beyond that are necessary to advance in the multi-disciplinary fields of mucosal immunology and inflammation. The Pasteur campus offers top expertise in microbiology and immunology, as well as cutting-edge technical platforms, all of which are essential to progress at these scientific frontiers.
