We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join a collaborative project, which aims to evaluate if exposure to 5G radiofrequency fields potentiates the carcinogenic effect of ultraviolet (UV)-B.
The candidate must have an interest in health and environment research. The position is open to candidate with a wide range of backgrounds including animal experimentation, molecular biology, in vitro culture and ideally expertise in skin biology. Knowledge of electromagnetic fields would be appreciated.
This project 5G-SKINUV received a grant from ANSES (Agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire de l'alimentation, de l'environnement et du travail).
The objective of 5G-SKINUV project is to investigate the possible effects of co-exposure to RF EMF and UV on skin cell features. To this end, 5G signals at 26 GHz (at various power densities) and UVB will be applied on in vivo and in vitro models including pigmented reconstructed epidermis, mouse model, and skin tumors transplanted into mice. These models allow us to scan the potential effect of combined RF EMF and UV exposure on all the steps of carcinogenesis (initiation, invasion and metastasis).
This highly collaborative project involves three research teams: BIOEM-IMS (Bioélectromagnétisme/Laboratoire de l'Intégration du Matériau au Système) and TRIO2-BRIC (Translational Research In Oncodermatology and Orphan skin diseases/Bordeaux Institute of Oncology BRIC) and BIOEM-XLIM. The candidate will work part time in BIOEM-IMS and TRIO2–BRIC, 2 labs that are close together.
Candidates should have a doctoral degree and strong research background. Please send a, statement of research experience and career goals, a copy of Curriculum Vitae, and contact information of at least one reference to Dr Cario Muriel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Application deadline 7 July 2023
