in the Team “Cellular therapies in brain disease”
(Dr. Afsaneh Gaillard , Experimental and Clinical Neurosciences Laboratory, Poitiers, France)
Our research program focuses on repair of damaged adult central nervous system by cell replacement therapies. We are mostly interested in the lesions targeting the cortex after traumatic lesion and the brain lesions observed in the Parkinson's disease (Gaillard et al., Nature Neuroscience, 2007; Gaillard et al. Neurobiol. Dis. 2009; Espuny-Camacho et al., Neuron 2013; Michelsen et al., Neuron, 2015, Péron et al., J Neurosci. 2017).
We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in molecular biology, light sheet microscopy and computational image analysis to study the neuroanatomical integration of transplanted human induced pluripotent stem cells derived cortical neurons in animal models of traumatic brain injury using recombinant rabies virus technology, and 3D reconstruction of degenerated pathways after clearing whole brain. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in Neurosciences, Neurobiology or a related discipline.
The position is initially for 1 year but can be extended and it is available from the 1 November 2018.
