International Call for Applications

For a Leader of 4-year research group within the Institut Pasteur in Côte d’Ivoire


Closing date for applications: September 30th, 2016


The Department of International Affairs of the Institut Pasteur is launching an international call for applications for future leader of 4-Year Groups (G4) within the Institut Pasteur in Côte d’Ivoire.

The candidate will be appointed head of a research group for 4 years and will receive start-up funding that includes his/her own salary and potentially that of engineers, technicians and doctoral students, as well as basic laboratory equipment and an operating budget. The candidate should subsequently obtain fresh funding to maintain his/her group on the longer term. Chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and primary liver cancer (mostly hepatocellular carcinomas), related to chronic Hepatitis B and C infections or other etiological factors, represent a major public health problem in African countries at large and in Côte d'Ivoire in particular. Biomarkers that might reliably indicate the stage and predict the evolution of the liver disease would be of major value for the implementation of the most appropriate and efficient measures for patients' management. The Institut Pasteur in Côte d’Ivoire is a national institute whose missions include public health activities, teaching and research. It is part of the Institut Pasteur International Network that comprises 33 institutes worldwide.
