Synthetic Biology/Citizen Science Post-doctoral position open

The Evolutionary Systems Biology Team, INSERM
Synthetic Biology/Citizen Science Post-doctoral position 

We seek an autonomous post-doc to join us in developing novel synthetic biology projects through crowd-sourcing, DIY approaches and gamification as part of a new Europeanfunded project, Citizen CyberLab - a three-year project to study and enhance the opportunities for learning and creativity available to participants in citizen science projects.The post-doc will join the extended CRI lab that includes synthetic and systems biology researchers as well as coders and game designers. 

Our team from diverse backgrounds and nationalities is embedded within the Centre for Research and Interdisciplinarity (The CRI). The CRI harbors international interdisciplinary English-speaking undergrad and graduate programs and is a hub for challenging exchanges amongst faculty and top-notch students. Team members may directly benefit from this environment by participating in the teaching experience at the CRI. The CRIbased iGEM team trophy path started in 2007 with the foundational advance award and includes the 2012 world's 2nd runner-up and best environment project prizes. 

Candidates should have relevant scientific background, an excellent track record (including at least one publication as 1st author), pertinent view on synthetic biology human practice issues as well as motivation to work in a collaborative framework. 

Fellowship is available for a 12 month period, with potential extension. In parallel, our postdocs are strongly encouraged and supported to apply for their independent fundings. http://www.citizencyberlab.eu
