Poste à pourvoir à l'IRCM

Postdoctoral Position in Modeling of the Tumor MicroenvironmentDate limite de candidature : 31/12/2019The Colinge Laboratory Cancer Bioinformatics and Systems Biology at IRCM (Cancer Research Institute of Montpellier) is looking for a talented postdoctoral fellow to work on the evolution of the tumor microenvironment (TME) in response to therapy. This computational work will build upon on-going developments conducted in the lab to infer cellular interactions taking place in the TME. Both single-cell and bulk transcriptomics configurations will be considered. A significant part of the research will relate to lung adenocarcinoma and involve a consortium of expert laboratories in lung cancer and mouse models thereof, animal computer tomography, and 3D imaging. The postdoc position is funded for three years; a 1-year contract will be offered first and extended for another two years based on performance. Preferred qualifications are a bioinformatics Ph.D. with solid computational skills or a mathematics, physics, or computer science Ph.D. with strong interests in life science applications. Interested applicants should e-mail their CV, a letter of motivation, and the names and e-mails of 2 references to Prof Jacques Colinge (at Applications will be studied immediately.

Inauguration du CyTOF/HYPERION

L’Institut de Recherche en Cancérologie de Montpellier a inauguré, le 18 septembre 2019, une plateforme d’imagerie par cytométrie de masse basée sur la technologie CyTOF/Hyperion permettant, pour la première fois en France, de cartographier le microenvironnement cellulaire et l’hétérogénéité tumorale. Cette technologie, unique en France, est porteuse de nouveaux espoirs pour les patients. Elle devrait permettre, à l’heure où l’immunothérapie a des effets cliniques spectaculaires, y compris chez des patients en échappement thérapeutique, d’approfondir la connaissance sur ces nouvelles thérapies anticancéreuses.    Communiqué de presse Inauguration CyTOF IRCM

the word of the director

"Together, let's push the boundaries."

«In just 20 years, the Institut de Recherche en Cancérologie de Montpellier (IRCM U1194) has raised its research to the highest international level in the field of fundamental and applied oncology, research carried out in close collaboration with the clinical departments of the Centre de Lutte Contre le Cancer de Montpellier (ICM: Institut du Cancer de Montpellier), and industrial partners. Jointly operated by Inserm, ICM and the University of Montpellier, the IRCM now brings together more than 200 people, researchers, clinicians, technicians and students, organised into 17 research teams supported by efficient technical platforms and support services. In an extremely competitive and rapidly evolving field of research, our greatest challenge is to stay one step ahead, seek excellence, accelerate innovation and transfer to the patient to ultimately help overcome the countless different forms of cancer.Together, let's push the boundaries.»

Claude Sardet, Director of the IRCM
