PROFILE: Immunology

Start date September 2024.


The candidate will be a member of the Immunology teaching team in the Biology department of the Sciences UFR and will take part in specialised Immunology teaching from the bachelor’s to the master’s level. He or she will take part in the theoretical and practical teaching of fundamental immunology at undergraduate level (L2 and L3). As the Master’s degree in Immunology is part of a unique course combining a research Master’s degree and a professional Master’s degree to train the immunologists of tomorrow, the candidate will be involved in active teaching in the field of molecular and cellular immunology, as well as in biotechnological and therapeutic applications of this discipline (therapeutic targeting by antibodies, nanobodies, etc.). The candidate will also teach his/her speciality in immunology in a CMI course (Cursus Master Ingénierie), which is based on the Bachelor’s and Master’s courses.

The candidate will be involved in relations with the business world and integration into the Marseille Immunology Biocluster (MIB), and will be expected to participate in international partnerships between the AMU and other universities around the world.


The Centre d’Immunologie de Marseille-Luminy (CIML) is an internationally recognised research institute in the discipline, exploring a wide field of contemporary immunology using a wide variety of models and scales ( ). The CIML is also a centre of activity in immunology and immuno-oncology at the heart of a rich ecosystem in Marseilles, recognised in the recent creation of an Immunology Biocluster (MIB).

The candidate will be expected to integrate and develop his/her research activity in one of the CIML’s 14 research teams, preferably in a team that does not yet have a CE and is expected to continue beyond the unit’s next term of office (Bajénoff, Dalod, Gaya, Irla, Lawrence, Milpied, Roulland, van de Pavert, Rua, Ugolini teams). An interest in human immunology, systems immunology in the context of infectious diseases, and spatial and multi-omics approaches would be appreciated.
