Offer Description

Our laboratory at Institut Pasteur has one position available for postdoctoral fellow in the area of inflammation and regenerative disease research. We are interested in mechanisms of tissue homeostasis, adaptation and repair, with an emphasis on tissue long lived cells such as stromal cells, and their crosstalk with immune cells, stem cells and the vasculature. We perform mostly in vivo studies, combining lineage tracing and depletion models, flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and unbiased approaches such as single cells transcriptomics and epigenetics to characterize molecular and cellular mechanisms. Using such approaches, we previously identified an essential role for specific subsets of stromal cells in tissue homeostasis/repair, vascular remodeling and antitumor immunity (Dulauroy et al., Nature Medicine 2012; Stzepourginski et al., PNAS 2017; Jacob et al., Cell Stem Cell 2022; Di Carlo et al., Nature Immunology 2023). Building on these findings, this project aims at identifying novel mechanisms regulating tissue repair and inflammation, with a focus on stromal immunoregulation and plasticity in organs with high remodeling capacity such as the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue.

Research will be conducted at Institut Pasteur in the center of Paris, which contains state of-the-art facilities and a highly collaborative research environment with 13 Departments across Biology/Physics/Biomedical fields. Our lab is co-affiliated with the Departments of “Immunology” and “Developmental and Stem Cell Biology”, facilitating interactions and collaborations in these different research areas.

Recent publications of the lab:

  • PDGFRα-induced stromal maturation is required to restrain postnatal intestinal epithelial stemness and promote defense mechanisms. 2022. Jacob et al., Cell Stem Cell, 29(5): 856-868.
  • Depletion of slow-cycling PDGFRa+ ADAM12+ mesenchymal cells promotes antitumor immunity by restricting macrophage efferocytosis. 2023. Di Carlo et al., Nature Immunology, 24(11):1867-1878.
