Description

Working environment

Subject:

SOCS proteins are involved in the regulation of immune responses, and until now, studies primarily focused on SOCS-1 and -3. We recently identified a point mutation in SOCS-2 providing a strong predisposition to bacterial infections. The purpose of this project is to determine the mechanisms of the altered functions associated with this point mutation.

This work is part of the REIDSOCS project (ANR for the period 10/2016 – 09/2020) (http://www.agence-nationale-recherche.fr/Projet-ANR-16-CE20-0010).

The post-doctoral fellow will perform experiments using a newly developed mouse model for the purpose of this project and available at the time of recruitment.

Training and skills required

Applications are welcome till the end of March 2018. Candidates should contact rapidly Prof. G. Foucras with a full CV and three reference letters.
