The Centre Ingénierie et Santé (CIS) – Laboratoire SAnté INgéniérie BIOlogie St-Etienne (SAINBIOSE), part of École des Mines de Saint Étienne (France) is looking for an Assistant Professor in Biomechanics and Mechanobiology to join our research group. The initial position is offered for 1 year and can be renewed depending on the recruired person performance.

Expected candidate profile

The candidate must hold a PhD in biomechanics, bioengineering or biophysics. A mixed mechanicist / biologist, physicist / biologist profile and an appetite for developing experimental work in bioengineering at the cellular and molecular scales would be particularly appreciated. Significant teaching experience in the aforementioned fields at a second or third cycle level will be appreciated. The recruited person will have to attest to a significant scientific production in at least one of the fields of the "Mechanics, Biology and Health" theme. Significant international experience highly recommended.

Missions in Teaching

The teaching mission consists in ensuring courses, directed and practical work, or supervision of projects and internships, in the different training cycles of Mines Saint-Etienne (Civil Engineer of Mines, international master, doctoral training, training continuous and under salaried status). The candidate should be able to teach in English and cover a fairly wide spectrum among the lessons of physics, mechanics, bioengineering and materials science. The design, supervision and facilitation activities are taken into account in the minimum annual hourly volume to be provided.

The recruited person will develop a research project integrating the themes of the SAINBIOSE laboratory (VDH or LBTO team), for example in one of the following fields (non-exhaustive and indicative list):

  • mechanobiology of endothelial cells in connection with thrombosis and aneurysmal pathologies
  • mechanobiology of cartilage linked to the inflammatory reaction,
  • mechanobiology of atrial fibrillation.

The experimental profile is essential. Among the previous experiences considered with interest:

  • Instrumental developments for observation, study or biomechanical manipulation at the cellular and molecular scales.
  • Studies of the properties of living things, their evolution and their response to external mechanical stimuli.
  • Biomechanics and mechanobiology for cardiovascular or osteoarticular applications

These missions will be carried out on the Saint-Etienne Campus (42), Campus Santé Innovations. The main criteria for evaluating the candidate will be as follows (non-exhaustive list):

  • Ability to integrate into the project of the center and the research laboratory on a theme "Mechanics, Biology and Health",
  • International experience
  • Scientific production
  • Significant teaching experience


Application deadline June 30th 2020.
