A 18 months postdoctoral position is available under the supervision of Dr Marie-Laure Arcangeli in the Laboratory of Hematopoietic Stem cells and Leukemia headed by Dr Françoise PFLUMIO, in Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique, Fontenay-aux-Roses, France.

The position is funded by Cancéropôle Ile-de-France (net monthly salary: 2100 Euros) and will start between March and June 2017. We are expecting a highly motivated scientist to join an ongoing research program focused on the mechanisms involved in the control of hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) quiescence and self-renewal. Briefly, we are currently studying the effects of genotoxic stress on HSC maintenance using HSC exposition to low doses of ionizing radiations (manuscript in preparation) and models of mice deficient for proteins involved in stress responses.

The applicant has recently defended a PhD in Hematology or Immunology and has not yet been elected for any research contract after the PhD thesis. Applicants with a post-doc position after the PhD defense are not eligible.

The applicant must have a solid experience in experimental hematopoiesis (human and/or murine) and multi-parametric flow cytometry. Propensity to work with mice is mandatory. Strong background in malignant hematopoiesis would be greatly appreciated. The applicant will have a complementary training in relevant disciplines related to hematology/immunology (cellular biology, imaging, biochemistry...).

The laboratory is located in the suburb of Paris, easily accessible by public transportation. The scientific environment and the Institute provide state of the art facilities to carry out in vivo and in vitro studies as well as molecular/cellular studies. Applications, including a cover letter giving a brief description of the previous experience, a CV + List of publications, and names/e-mail addresses of at least two referent persons who could provide recommendation letters, need to be sent to:

Dr Marie-Laure Arcangeli, Ph.D.
