We are looking for a highly motivated and talented young scientist interested by molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in cortical development. The postdoctoral fellow will join the new ATIP/avenir research team headed by Juliette Godin in the Department of Translational Medicine and Neurogenetics at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC), Strasbourg, France.
The focus of the lab is to understand how the centrosome and the cytoskelettons contribute to the different steps of the mouse cortical development, i.e, proliferation, migration, differentiation in health and disease. The lab combine molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, live imaging and mouse genetics to address these questions.
In addition to a Ph.D., the candidate should have expertise in molecular, biochemical and cell biological techniques. Background in neuroscience and training in primary cell culture methods, in vivo mouse techniques and imaging techniques are preferred. Candidate should have the ability to work independently as well as in collaborative research efforts.
The position will be open until a suitable candidate is found but preferential treatment will be given to applications received before 31st of May 2015. Applications, including CV, a cover letter describing research experience and interest, and contact information of at least two references should be sent to [email protected]
