The Institut Pasteur is a non-profit private foundation dedicated to
fundamental, interdisciplinary research and to translating scientific
knowledge to medicine and public health. Topics of research cover
microbiology and infectious diseases, cell biology, immunology, developmental
biology and stem cells, neuroscience, genomics, genetics and cancer. The
Paris campus houses 130 research units belonging to 11 research departments,
employing about 2,600 people. It is recognized worldwide as a leader in
infectious disease research and is ranked as a top-level institution for
publication impact in the field of microbiology and neuroscience.
The Mass Spectrometry for Biology UTechS (MSBio) headed by Julia Chamot-Rooke
is a mixed Institut Pasteur/CNRS Unit (USR 2000). The Unit provides service
and research activities in proteomics. The proteomics facility, headed by
Mariette Matondo, provides service and collaboration mainly in bottom-up
proteomics. The research group develops new pipelines in top-down proteomics
and structural proteomics (cross-linking MS, HDX-MS, native MS).
A research engineer position in bioinformatics is available in MSBio UTechS,
with a shared activity between the facility and the research group. The
engineer will also have tight interactions with facility users as well as
with the Department of Computational Biology.
Main activities:
- Implement existing bioinformatics pipelines and develop new ones for the
analysis and visualization of proteomics data obtained by high-resolution
mass spectrometry (bottom-up proteomics, top-down proteomics, cross-linking
mass spectrometry)
- Advise users on existing software tools and bioinformatics pipelines
- Analyze mass spectrometry and proteomics data
- Ensure an active monitoring of scientific literature in bioinformatics for proteomics
- Provide user training in bioinformatics
- Participate into the writing of scientific publications


Candidate’s profile:
- Master or PhD degree in (bio)informatics
- Basic knowledge in biochemistry or MS-based proteomics
- A first experience in bioinformatics applied to proteomics is appreciated
- Technical skills: computational languages (among C++, SQL, XML, Python,…)
- Flexibility and ability to work in a multidisciplinary environment on multiple scientific projects
- Good communication and interpersonal skills and experience in presenting concepts and data in oral and written formats
- Scientific rigor
- Experience in teaching bioinformatics/biostatistics will be a plus.


The deadline for applying is September 8, 2019. Successful candidates will be
received for interviews at the end of September or beginning of October 2019.
Starting date is planned ideally December 2019.
