The group will be launched in September 2018. We are interested in developmental, metabolic or behavioural sex differences and aims to understand how sex chromosome constitution (XX versus XY) impacts physiology across the body. We are currently identifying new genes/pathways and concepts driving sex chromosome effects using multi-‐scale approaches combining biochemistry, genetics and cell biology. For this, we use the fruit fly Drosophila Melanogaster as a model system. More information can be found on the lab webpage (http://ibv.unice.fr/research-‐team/hudry/). The position will be funded for 2 years through an ATIP-‐Avenir grant and would ideally start in December 2018. We seek highly motivated candidates with interests in cell and developmental biology. Candidates should have a good working knowledge in live imaging and image analysis or prior experience conducting behavioural experiments. Previous experience with Drosophila is a plus, but is not mandatory.
We strongly value team spirit and a positive work environment. The institute of Biology Valrose (27 teams; 300 persons; 25 nationalities) is an international institute (English is the working language) with a rich and vivid scientific environment. The iBV provides state of the art core facilities, with a collaborative and lively atmosphere in a gorgeous city/region. If you are interested, please contact Bruno Hudry (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your CV and a brief statement of your research intrests and key areas expertise and up to 3 recommandation contacts. The fund of this post is available for 2 years in the first instance.
