To strengthen its research on signaling pathways, SIGNALIFE is launching an international call for Chairs of Excellence to recruit scientific leaders who will establish new research groups in each of the SIGNALIFE institutes of biology.

The Laboratory of Excellence for Innovation in Signal Transduction Pathways in Life Sciences (Labex SIGNALIFE) brings together high-profile researchers from five institutes of biology (C3M, iBV, IPMC, IRCAN and ISA) and one research Institute for Digital Science and Technology (Inria) at Université Côte d’Azur (UCA) in Nice, France. The common goal of the SIGNALIFE teams is to study signaling pathways from their architecture to their modulation, in order to understand their role in the development and the functions or dysfunctions of organs and organisms. Various biological models are used, and the applications resulting from basic and translational research include biomedical research, pharmacology, development and agriculture.

Applications are open to candidates of any nationality, including researchers with a permanent position in France, but candidates must not be working in a SIGNALIFE laboratory at the time of their application.

The proposed project should be ambitious and relate to the scientific axes of the SIGNALIFE program: Cellular Architecture of Signaling Pathways (axis 1), Plasticity of Signaling (axis 2), Stress Signaling (axis 3), Signaling in Aging and Disease Progression (axis 4) and New principles in Signaling and Applications, possibly in association with Inria (axis 5). The added value of the proposal to the SIGNALIFE network will be an important selection criterion.

Deadline : March 1st, 2021
