ESPCI Paris 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 Laboratory of Biochemistry at ESPCI ParisTech, 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.


We are seeking a highly motivated engineer to work on high-throughput single-cell analysis based on droplet-based microfluidics and NGS.
Preferred experience : Molecular biology bench experience (PCR, cloning, Reverse transcription, RNAseq, NGS library preparation), Cell biology bench experience (Cell culture, Flow cytometry, ELISA).
The candidate should be interested in learning microfluidic technics, or have work experience in microfluidics (preferred).
The candidate should have good interpersonal skills, flexibility, autonomy, and ability to work in a highly multidisciplinary team.
Education requirements : Master or engineer in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Biotechnology.
Excellent oral, written and presentation skills in English.
Recruitment terms :
Starting date : As soon as possible
Duration : 3 months renewable
Salary : according to professional experience
