Call for Junior Group Leader in Neurosciences






Texte de l'offre

The Interdisciplinary Institute of Neurosciences, NeuroStra, is an Institute of Research and Training in Neurosciences funded by the University of Strasbourg, CNRS and INSERM, and starting in January 2021. Gathering 10 laboratories (about 400 members), NeuroStra's ambition is to structure the research and training programs of the Strasbourg Neuroscience teams around their internationally recognized scientific strengths: pain, time processing in the nervous system, and neurogenetic and neurodegenerative diseases.

NeuroStra aims to recruit an outstanding junior scientist to develop a project in line with one of the above priority axes, which levels of investigation can range from molecular to integrated ones, including clinical approaches in humans.

The selected group leader will benefit from a starting package, and she/he will be supported to apply for complementary fundings and for tenured positions at the CNRS, INSERM or University of Strasbourg. The selected group leader will have access to state-of-the-art facilities in molecular and cell biology, in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology, cell and brain imaging, neuroanatomy, electron microscopy, and behavioral and physiological analyses. Appropriate laboratory and office space will be provided.

Applicants should be dynamic and early-career neuroscientists, with the potential to develop an innovative and independent research program, in interaction and collaboration with researchers from NeuroStra. Candidates must meet criteria to compete for national and international research funding and for French institutional research and/or teaching positions. Applicants should have excellent training background and publication track record and:
preferentially be within the first 10 years following PhD defense;
already have 1st name postdoctoral publication;
Researchers holding a permanent position in France are welcome to apply.

Applications in a single pdf file should include:
a complete CV, including the list of publications;
two letters of recommendation;
descriptions of previous research achievements (1-2 pages);
a planned research project within the research domains of NeuroStra (2-3 pages);
3 original articles (pdf) that the applicant considers her/his main scientific contributions to the field.
