The CRBM is a leading research institute in biochemistry and cell biology in the south of France. It is located on a multidisciplinary campus of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Montpellier. Research at the institute covers fundamental and translational aspects of biology, with focus on:
  • Cell division
  • Cell adhesion and signaling
  • Cancer biology
  • Gene regulation and systems biology
  • Bioinformatics and molecular modeling
CRBM is recruiting new junior/senior group leaders to start late 2016 / early 2017. Successful candidates will be expected to establish a world-class research program reinforcing these topics, in an interactive and supportive environment. All projects with the potential to synergize with CRBM topics will be considered, including interdisciplinary projects. New group leaders will receive laboratory space and access to multiple technological platforms, including cutting-edge imaging facility hosted by CRBM (htpp:// They will be assisted in rapidly obtaining permanent tenured positions (CNRS, INSERM) and in securing funding through competitive grant calls.

CRBM is supported by the CNRS and Montpellier University. It is composed of 17 research groups, bringing together 170 staff members and students. CRBM interacts closely with CNRS biological institutes on the campus, CPBS and IGMM, bringing together 450 scientists. CRBM benefits from state-of-the-art platforms dedicated to imaging, proteomics, animal facilities (ascidians, zebrafishes, xenopus laevi, and transgenic mice), deep sequencing and transcriptomics, FACS sorting, and histology through the Montpellier BioCampus network (htpp:// CRBM is part of the Montpellier Comprehensive Cancer center (Montpellier SIRIC) and is involved in the French Laboratories of Excellence programme (Labex Epigenmed).

Montpellier is a dynamic and attractive Mediterranean city in an exceptional environment. It is home to many high quality research institutes, a vibrant student population and one of the world’s oldest medical schools.
