Postdoctoral position, Bally-Cuif lab, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France

Posted by , on 18 April 2017

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

The laboratory of Zebrafish Neurogenetics, led by Dr. Laure Bally-Cuif at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, is seeking an outstanding and highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate to contribute to our ongoing research on adult neurogenesis in zebrafish. Our lab is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying basic adult neural stem cell properties, including the control of their quiescence, their interactions with other neural stem cells of the germinal niche, and their recruitment towards neuron generation. The project will involve characterizing how the neurogenic activity of individual neural stem cells is controlled, and how neuronal identities are encoded and used to build a continuously growing but functional brain. Analyses will involve genetic approaches, whole-mount imaging and cell tracing in the adult animal, and will include tool development for conditional functional assays in adult neural stem cells.


Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in biology, and a strong interest and background in molecular and cellular neuroscience, in any model system. Previous experience with imaging and genomic techniques is preferred. Proficiency in English is required.


The position is funded by the European Research Council and Labex Revive.

The Bally-Cuif team is one of the 16 research groups of the “Developmental and Stem Cell Biology” Department of the Pasteur Institute, focusing on evolutionary, developmental and stem cell biology in various animal models. It is also co-affiliated with the Pasteur “Neuroscience” Department.
