Positions in The Center for Microbes, Development and Health at Institut Pasteur of Shanghai, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Date:22-11-2019   |   【Print】 【close



Institut Pasteur of Shanghai (IPS) is an independent research institution jointly established by Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Institut Pasteur and Shanghai Municipal Government. IPS is dedicated to enhancing preparedness and responsiveness to infectious diseases through conducting cutting-edge research and sustained translation of solutions.


IPS has evolved three interdisciplinary research fields that cover pathogen biology, infection and immunity, vaccinology and immune therapy. IPS performs fundamental research on infectious diseases with unmet medical needs, emerging/reemerging viral, bacterial, fungal and parasite infections, immune regulation in metabolic disorders, tumorigenesis and degenerative diseases.


 “The Center for Microbes, Development and Health” headed by Professor Philippe Sansonetti addresses the “post-modern, non-communicable epidemics” emerging in high-income regions, including high susceptibility of newborns to infections, and the developmental defects affecting populations in low-to-middle income regions, the focus being on the etiological role played by the ongoing global degradation of the human-microbial interface.




The center is now seeking outstanding postdoctoral fellows, technicians as well as experienced lab managers.
