Post-doc positions in Molecular Biology Biochemistry Team - ESPCI Paris - PSL Pr Andrew Griffiths

ESPCI Paris - PSL is a major institution of higher education (a French "Grande École d’ingénieurs"), an internationally renowned research center (6 Nobel Prizes), and a fertile ground of innovation for industry (3 start-ups created/year). ESPCI is a highly multidisciplinary environment with teaching and research in physics, chemistry and biology.

Prof. Andrew Griffiths’ Lab
The research activities of the Team of Biochemistry, directed by Prof. Andrew GRIFFITHS, are based around droplet-based microfluidics, a powerful new ultrahigh-throughput system in which reaction volumes can be miniaturized by up to a million-fold compared to conventional assays in microtitre plates. This opens up exciting prospects for the development of extremely innovative systems with many applications in the Life Sciences. The successful candidate will join a highly multidisciplinary team, with experience spanning biology, chemistry and physics.


The aim of the collaborative project is to develop innovative state of the art microfluidic technologies for single-cell analyses and sorting of clinical non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) samples, surgical pieces and biopsies.
The postdoc will develop high-throughput single-cell targeted and whole transcriptome approaches coupled to single cell phenotypic analysis based on NGS and flow-cytometry. The combination of these technologies will allow a high-resolution analysis of the tumour microenvironment before and during immunotherapy by checkpoint inhibitors.


We are seeking a highly motivated post-doc to work on molecular biology using droplet-based microfluidics and next generation sequencing. Requirements are a PhD in molecular biology or related fields and interest in learning how to use microfluidics systems.

Flexibility, autonomy, the ability to work in a highly multidisciplinary team and good interpersonal skills are essential.
