  • CDI

We are seeking a motivated and outstanding individual to join our Alcediag research and early discovery group as a Postdoctoral Fellow. The selected candidate will work within an interdisciplinary and innovative research team to explore the use of RNA editing modifications as potential diagnostics in mental health. To be successful in this role will require creative thinking. Also, the ability to work independently to conceptualize, implement, and meticulously carry out experiments. The successful candidate must also have a desire to learn the skills they do not possess (with support) to make the most of the opportunity.

This postdoctoral position will provide the candidate with a well-resourced industry environment where they can accelerate the pace of their science and produce original research for high impact publications. The postdoc will gain extensive experience in RNA editing, molecular biology assays, cellular disease modeling, and functional genomics. This position will be highly interdisciplinary and require close collaboration with various other departments at Alcediag such as bioinformatics, biostatistics.


The postdoc will be working with a group of biologists, bioinformaticians and biostatisticians to:

  • Design and execute molecular biology/blood and /or cell-based experiments
  • Analyze and interpret results, and present at internal meetings and scientific conferences
  • Writing original research manuscripts for scientific publication(s)


  • A Ph.D. degree in the life sciences (ex: molecular biology, neuroscience, etc.) or D. degree
  • Strong research track record as demonstrated by quality publications or patents
  • Strong knowledge in neuroscience
  • Essential laboratory skills including molecular biology, nucleic acid biochemistry, DNA/RNA, and protein analysis (ex: qPCR, ddPCR), tissue culture etc..
  • Knowledge and experience with functional genomics techniques (ex: RNA-seq, ChIP-seq) and programming in R/Python or similar object-oriented programming
  • The successful candidate must be a fast learner with strong organizational, written, and verbal skills, and possess the ability to work both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team
  • Please include a CV, cover letter, and list of three references in your application


ALCEDIAG develops biological and objective solutions to bring an end to diagnostic wavering for mental health disorders. Our first test is called EDIT-B, a first-in-class blood test for the differential diagnosis of bipolar disorder and depression. EDIT-B is CE marked, clinically validated and high performance and is to be deployed in Europe in 2023. Following this first success, we are working on the company’s next tests.

We are a multidisciplinary team gathered around a key concept: science and innovation at the service of people suffering from mental diseases. ALCEDIAG is located south of France in the historical heart of medicine in Europe and operates together with the CNRS the only public-private joint laboratory in life sciences, Sys2diag. Our solutions and current activities are the result of 15 years of R&D. We aim to provide you a positive and stimulating work environment, where you could grow and express your potential. ALCEDIAG team thrives on highly innovative and challenging projects with high potential impact for the scientific, the medical communities as well as for patients. If you feel that your background aligns with the description below, please contact us and apply!


The position is available immediately, and located in Montpellier area, France.
