A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Brain Ageing and Repair at the Grenoble Institute for Neurosciences (GIN). The selected candidate will work on an interdisciplinary and translational project at testing the effect of novel gene therapy approach in a model of neurodegeneration. This project is funded by the AFM-Telethon (Ignition program) and is also laureate of the Out of the Labs challenge (SATT Linksium). The project includes a wide range of techniques including cell culture (cell lines and primary neurons), viral vector production (lentiviral and AAV vectors), confocal microscopy, surgery, MRI imaging, behavioural tests, histology, biochemistry, metabolomic and molecular biology. The selected candidate will work together with an engineer and master students as well as in collaboration with members of other teams inside and outside the GIN.
Selected publications from the team: Reynaud-Dulaurier et al. (2020) Brain 143(6): 1686-1696 Reynaud-Dulaurier et al. (2020) Front. Bioeng. Biotechnol. 8:582979
Technical expertise We seek to hire a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who can demonstrate a good track record of accomplishment in the field neurobiology and/or gene therapy. Candidates should have a good background in both in vivo and in vitro work. Excellent writing and communication skills are important. The ability to be a team player and to interact with several groups is a must. Prior expertise in viral vector production and diploma for animal experimentation (or FELASA equivalent) will be a plus. The qualified candidate will benefit from working with a dynamic and multidisciplinary group in a collaborative and stimulating environment and he/she will have access to state-of-the-art laboratories and core facilities (for more information: https://neurosciences.univ-grenoble-alpes.fr).
