Poste et missions

Post-doctoral position in INSERM UMR1011 in Lille, France

Project: “Metabolic Activation of the Hepatic Immune System in Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis”

Project overview: This project is focused on understanding the molecular drivers of the pathogenesis of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The team has recently identified changes in various hepatic immune cell populations that associate with the development of NASH in an animal model and in humans. The fellow’s task is to determine how metabolic alterations associated with NASH (i.e. insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia) interact with the hepatic immune system and drive disease pathogenesis. The fellow will use state of the art tools (Seahorse/OroboROS, Metabolomics, 13C flux, Single Cell RNA-seq) to define the metabolic programs that support hepatic immune function in the context of NASH.

The project will be performed in INSERM UMR1011, a research unit affiliated to the European Genomic Institute of Diabetes (EGID) LabEx, INSERM, Institut Pasteur de Lille, CHU de Lille and Lille University. The unit develops interdisciplinary research at the interface of physiology, cell biology, biochemistry and medicine, hosts state-of-the art scientific services and technological platforms, and attracts students from around the world by offering high-level training in biomedical sciences.

We offer a 1-year contract (renewable for a second year) starting Nov 2020. This position was funded by the I-SITE foundation of Lille University. Remuneration and social benefits will be based on the INSERM agreement for public-sector employees. The applicant will be involved in a multidisciplinary group including basic scientists, clinicians and bioinformaticians, and integrated in international collaborations. They will have access to various technologies to perform this scientific project with high clinical relevance.

Your responsibilities will include:

- Molecular and biochemical analysis of cells and tissues of genetically modified mice

- Establishment of new techniques for metabolite analysis using in vivo models

- Bioinformatic/statistical analyses
