Application starting December 2020 until candidate found.

Context and environment: Institut Curie (https://institut-curie.org) is one of the largest European institutions for cancer research with strong interdisciplinary traditions. It also comprises a hospital specialized in cancer treatments, and therefore disposes of a continuum of expertise from basic research to patient care. The Project Manager position is opened in the Translational Immunotherapy (TransIM) team headed by Eliane Piaggio located in the SIRiC (Integrated Cancer Research) site, the Translational Research department and the Inserm “Immunity and Cancer” unit U932 of Institut Curie headed by Sebastian Amigorena (https://science.curie.fr/recherche/biologie-interactive-des-tumeurs-immunologie-environnement/immunite-et-cancer/equipe-piaggio-loirat/). Her main areas of interest are in the field of T cell responses (especially Tregs), resistance mechanisms to immune-checkpoint blockers, tumor neoantigens identification and tumor microenvironment. She has created in 2020, Egle Therapeutics, an Institut Curie spin-off exploiting her discoveries.
