Job description:

A postdoctoral position is available in the “cellular and molecular mechanisms of gliomagenesis” group  led by Dr Emmanuelle Huillard  at  the Brain  and Spinal Cord  Institute (ICM) in Paris, France (http://icm-­institute.org). ICM is one of  the top  neuroscience institutes  in France, located on  the Pitié-­Salpêtrière  Hospital Campus  in downtown  Paris. The  institute is devoted to  basic and clinical research in neuroscience and hosts ambitious  international groups, working on different aspects of the central  nervous system and associated pathologies (neurodegenerative diseases, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, epilepsy, neural and glial development, cognition, motivation, etc). Technical support is provided through cutting-­edge technology platforms, including genomics, vectorology, imaging, small animal MRI, histology and cell culture facilities.

The group of Dr Huillard was created in 2012 and is focused on uncovering the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the development of gliomas, the most common primary brain tumors in the adult. We developed a particular interest in lower grade gliomas, such as oligodendrogliomas: we are interested in understanding the functional impact of genes recurrently mutated and developing novel genetic models for these tumors.

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to characterize a novel mouse model combining mutations frequently found in oligodendrogliomas. This project is part of an international consortium involving collaborators in France, UK and USA and funded by the Oligo Nation and Operation Oligo Cure associations.

 

 

Qualifications  and skills:

Applicants must hold a PhD in neurosciences or a related field. Scientific and technical expertise in developmental neurobiology/glial development is highly desired. The applicant must be proactive, organized, able to work independently as well as in collaboration with other lab and consortium   members.  S/he should have an excellent publication record in peer-­reviewed journals. English proficiency is required.

 

 

How to apply:

To apply for this position, please email the following information to Dr Emmanuelle Huillard: emmanuelle.huillard@icm-­institute.org:

  • a complete CV including description of previous research projects
  • a cover letter describing research interests and career goals
  • the name and contact information of 3 references
