Recruitment : our scientific job offers

Since its creation in 1894, Institut Pasteur de Lille is founded on the following core values: Science at the service of human progress, scientific excellence and a service that is oriented towards public health. Our foundation, which is a recognised non-profit organisation, has always been involved in research on frequently occurring pathologies in our region, particularly infectious diseases like tuberculosis.
Currently, our teams of researchers are working on frequently occurring pathologies : infectious, inflammatory, chronic or acute diseases, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular illnesses, obesity, etc.
Our foundation is also interested in the scientific education of young people, the environment and is creating the code of conduct and quality guidelines provided below.

Candidates should apply by sending a CV addressed to HR ( with the relevant position as a subject.
Their CV should detail their publication list and summerize their research experience and interests. We would appreciate to receive contact information for 3 referees.

Post-doc position in Genetic Epidemiology – H/F

A 2-year post-doctoral position (with a possible extension) is available from January 2023 at Inserm UMR1167 unit – Risk factors and molecular determinants of aging-related diseases. The successful candidate will work with Céline Bellenguez in the multidisciplinary team led by Dr Jean-Charles Lambert, a group which is a world leader in the genetic epidemiology of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

 The objective of the post-doctoral project is to better characterize the genetic component of AD by studying the impact of sex-related genetic risk factors on the disease risk. This project will be performed on large datasets of AD cases and controls with whole-exome or whole-genome sequencing data (WES and WGS) and/or genome-wide genotyping data. It will be conducted in collaboration with our partners from the international and European consortia EADB, ADES, IGAP and ADSP. There will be opportunities to develop statistical methods.
