|A postdoctoral position is available for an initial period of 2 years at the “Stem Cell and Brain Research Institute” (www.sbri.fr) in the lab of Dr. Olivier Raineteau.
The project follows two recent studies from the team demonstrating transcriptional heterogeneity of postnatal neural progenitors (Donega et al., Cell Report, 2018), and their amenability to pharmacological manipulation (Azim et al., Plos Biology, 2017). It aims at using transcriptomic, as well as transplantation and fate-mapping approaches to study neural progenitors (endogenous or induced) and their capacity to produce define cell types, including distinct neuronal subtypes. The project is financed by an ANR grant and involves a close collaboration with the laboratory of Denis Jabaudon (CMU, Geneva).
We are seeking highly motivated candidates with a PhD in developmental neurosciences. The candidate will have a strong expertise in bio-informatics analysis (including single cell RNA-Sequencing analysis). Previous experience in cell transplantation and/or fate mapping approaches will be a plus.
Environment: The team is part of the Stem cell and Brain Research Institute (SBRI), and exciting international multidisciplinary research centre. The working languages are French and English.
Closing date: 2018-12-31
Employment start date: from 2019-03-01
