Group leader position
The Cell Biology department at the Institut Curie (UMR 144 Institut Curie/CNRS) in Paris is inviting applications from outstanding candidates interested in normal epithelium and cancer stem cells biology. Priority will be given to projects focused on mammary gland development, mammary stem cell biology and the mechanisms of breast cancer.
