One postdoc position is available in the lab Brain-C at the Institute of Biology Paris-Seine (IBPS) in Paris. This position is supported for 3 years by Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) starting March 1st, 2019.

The successful applicant will study the role of extracellular vesicles (EV) in Huntington’s disease (HD) using human stem cell and knock-in mouse models of HD pathogenesis. Theses studies will involve state-of-art methods for studying the secretion levels, molecular contents and biological effects of specific EV sub-populations.

Postdoc candidates should hold a PhD in Cell Biology or a related field. If a candidate has previous postdoctoral experience, this experience should not exceed 1-2 years if acquired in France and 2-3 years if acquired outside France.

Postdoc candidates are expected to be highly qualified and able to work independently while having an excellent team spirit. Essential qualifications include demonstrated experience in using state-of-art approaches for precision cell biology and in using the latest molecular biology technologies. Postdoc candidates should have at least 1-2 publications as a first author in major journals, in the field of EV biology or a related field such as endocytosis, intracellular vesicle trafficking and exocytosis. A background in cellular neurobiology and/or human stem cell biology will be a plus.

The successful candidate will work in a multi-disciplinary team that brings together systems biology, cell biology and mouse genetics and in a consortium involving the Institut Curie in Paris and GIN in Grenoble. This combination provides an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated fellow interested in precision cell biology and the study of intercellular communication mediated by EVs in the normal and pathological brain.
