What You Will Contribute To Altos

An exciting opportunity is available for Scientists and Senior Scientists to join the Larrieu group at Altos Labs, Cambridge Institute of Science (Cambridge, UK). We are seeking very highly motivated, creative, and collaborative individuals who are passionate and dedicated about employing their expertise to unravel the deep biology of cell health and resilience. This includes the elucidation of age-related changes in nuclear envelope biology, and potential interventions to reverse, halt or mitigate the effects of ageing on nuclear envelope dysfunction.

The Larrieu Lab

The Larrieu Lab has developed pioneering approaches based on the principle of synthetic rescue and relying on cutting-edge genetic screening approaches, to discover novel targets and cellular pathways that can reverse age-associated dysfunction of the nuclear envelope. Using Progeria Syndromes as models of accelerated aging, her findings have helped unravelling new mechanisms underlying nuclear envelope dysfunction, improved our understanding of premature and physiological aging and could contribute to the development of novel therapies. At Altos, the lab is interested in bringing new understanding of cellular resistance and resilience to nuclear envelope dysfunction in aging.


  • Study the mechanistic basis of age-associated nuclear envelope dysfunction.
  • Elucidate processes that contribute to the age-related erosion of cell/tissue resilience.
  • Engage in ground-breaking and innovative science and in Altos scientific activities.
