Junior postdoctoral position 2023-2024
A two-year junior postdoctoral position is available in our DREAM group at IRSET (www.irset.org/en), a leading Inserm research unit in the field of human health. We recently moved into a new building on the campus of the French Public Health School (www.ehesp.fr/en) in the center of Rennes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rennes). The capital city of Brittany is a hub for science, technology, and a wide variety of cultural events. Moreover, Paris is reachable within 90 minutes by high-speed train connections.
We are seeking candidates who have a PhD in molecular biology or biochemistry, and who have worked on protein structure/function analyses or the regulation of proteins by post-translational modifications.
We offer a monthly salary of approximately 2600€ (before taxes) in a city where the cost of living is comparatively reasonable. The position is available from January 2023 onwards at the earliest. The call will remain open until the position is filled. It is possible to apply for a third-year extension.
Please send your CV, a letter of motivation including a career plan, and contact information for least two colleagues you published first-author papers in international peer-reviewed journals with to Michael Primig (michael [dot] primiginserm [dot] fr). Suitable candidates will be short-listed for a job interview either on site or via videoconferencing before the final decision is made.

Assistant-Professor in Biochemistry / HRMS-based Exposomics
Researcher profile: Young Researcher (with less than 4 years research experience after PhD) or Established Researcher (with more than 4 years research experience)
Research fields: Biological Science, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Medical Sciences
Research: Assessment of human exposure to environmental contaminants (chemical exposome)
Technological advances in high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS), combined with the development of innovative bioinformatics tools, allows to characterize on large scale and without any a priori human exposure to chemical mixtures. These novel approaches based on HRMS, called “non-targeted”, provide a unique opportunity to capture the exposome (i.e. the totality of environmental exposures of an individual in a lifetime), and particularly the chemical exposome.
This new paradigm for exposure measurement offers new perspectives in the field of environmental health. The strategy of Irset, and more particularly the ELIXIR team (Lifecourse Epidemiology and Exposure Science for Environmental Health Exposure) is to develop new research to better understand the links between environmental chemicals exposures and the occurrence of chronic diseases in large scale epidemiological studies. Irset aims, both at the University of Rennes and at the national (medical research) and European levels, to position this theme as a high priority.
Consequently, Irset offers a position of permanent assistant professor position. We are seeking candidates with excellent skills in analytical chemistry (and in particular in LC / GC-HRMS) and/or in bioinformatics (big data analysis) to join the ELIXIR team which has already developed projects in this new field of research linked to the chemical exposome.
Successful candidate will have a strong background in analytical metabolomics/exposomics and/or bioinformatics for mining HRMS data. He/she will thus be responsible for developing new analytical and/or bioinformatics methods to conduct projects based on non-targeted HRMS analysis, on a large scale, of biological samples from epidemiological cohorts. These projects will aim to characterize, on a broad spectrum, exposures to mixtures of environmental chemicals and to study the existing associations between these exposures and health outcomes of interest to the host team. Strong interactions are expected with the epidemiologists from the host team but also with other Irset researchers with expertise in toxicology and "omics" sciences. The candidate must demonstrate very good communication skills in English in order to teach in English and to interact regularly with foreign researchers.
Key-words: Biochemistry, Metabolic biochemistry, Omics, bioinformatics
Teaching: Teaching general and analytical biochemistry as well as metabolism (French and English) to undergraduated students. Experience using omics techniques and integrated dimension of biochemistry, as well as research assessment of human exposure to environmental contaminants, especially environmental chemicals, in order to build Master degree teaching in the field.
Required Experience: 2 to 10 years
Fields: Biochemistry, Metabolic biochemistry, Omics, bioinformatics
Required Education Level or Diploma: PhD
Required Languages: French, English
- Teaching (on Rennes Beaulieu campus): University of Rennes 1, Faculty of Life and environmental sciences (Director: Claire Piquet-Pellorce). 2,800 students in life and environmental sciences, 120 lecturers, 20 persons for administrative and technical assistance.
- Research (on Rennes Villejean campus): Institut de recherche en santé, environnement et travail (Irset, UMR_S 1085) (Research Institute for Environmental and Occupational Health). Close to 350 persons, 11 research teams, and 1 technology platform
Type: permanent contract
Salary: According to experience
Envisaged Start Date: September 1, 2022
