The Developmental Biology Institute of Marseille (IBDM) is a leading research institute in Europe, with a unique focus on the study of developmental systems with interdisciplinary approaches using a wide range of animal models (Drosophila, Xenopus, C. elegans, Chick, Rat and Mouse). The IBDM is composed of 18 research groups and 5 scientific core facilities and benefits from the rich scientific environment of the Luminy campus of Aix-Marseille University. The overall research activity developed at the IBDM is at the crossroads of different fields: cell biology, development, evolution, neurobiology, physiology and biophysics. The connections and complementarity between these themes result in a strong scientific coherence of the overall research developed in the IBDM. The teams employ transversal approaches and complementary strategies to understand how the instructions encoded in the genome are interpreted and translated to build structures (cells, tissues, organs) that perform specific functions, how these processes are regulated and integrated at the level of the whole organism and how their deregulation can lead to pathologies. A priority is to favor interdisciplinarity through the integration of new and original approaches that create conceptual and technical interfaces.

Please visit our website for more information: http://www.ibdm.univ-mrs.fr.

We are looking for outstanding candidates who will complement the existing strengths of the Institute and develop an innovative and internationally competitive research program.
