Post-doctoral position in lipid-related metabolic and cardiovascular diseases

A post-doctoral position is open in the team “HDL & PI3K signalling in atherosclerosis”, Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases (I2MC), Toulouse.

Cardiovascular diseases remain the largest cause of mortality worldwide. Furthermore, in parallel with the increasing epidemic of obesity and diabetes, liver diseases, like the non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
(NAFLD), have progressively become a serious health concern. High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) remove excess cholesterol from atherosclerotic plaque for subsequent biliary and fecal excretion. Thus, improving HDL-mediated biliary lipid excretion is expected to decrease vascular and hepatic lipid deposition. This opens up new therapeutic perspectives for the development of therapies against atherosclerosis and hepatic steatosis.

Task and responsibilities
The applicant will work within a team dedicated to the study of HDL-mediated pathways in cardiometabolic diseases and composed of 4 other experienced researchers. He/she will be expected to set up and conduct pre-clinical research on cellular and animal models. He/she will complete the research phase with data analysis and will participate to the transition of the project to clinical development.

Entry requirement
The candidate should have a PhD. He/she must have a strong experience in NAFLD/NASH disease and knowledge in the field of vascular biology. He/she should have a good knowledge of the statistical and  bioinformatic tools. Additional experience with pharmacology should be considered a plus. English language skills are required. The applicant must be organized, thorough, proactive and a talented problem
The candidate can start as soon as June 1st, 2018.

Application procedure
Interested applicants should submit a motivation letter, a curriculum vitae including a full list of publications and at least two references Submissions should include the mailing label “Position CMD”.
