Required profile.

Expertise in biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology and more specifically in cell culture and study of gene expression (reporter genes, western blot, RT-PCR, RNA-Seq, DNA arrays). The mastery of the culture of the hepatocyte lineage HepaRG would be appreciated.
Skills in use, programming of robotic stations for 96-well, 384-well culture plates, in medium-throughput screening and management of chemical libraries;

Experience in the field of the environment or toxicology (nuclear receptors and more particularly PPARα, PPARγ and PXR, endocrine disruptors, ..);

Ability to work in a team, to manage collaborations with other teams, dynamism and autonomy essential.
