The project aims at a better understanding of the mechanisms of action of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor with the goal to improve adeno-associated virus (AAV)-mediated gene therapy for Parkinson’s disease (for more details: see L.Tenenbaum and M.Humbert-Claude, 2017, Frontiers in Neuroanatomy, review).

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with a Master degree or equivalent, with a background in neuroscience and in vivo experimentation. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience with basic molecular biology and bioinformatics (preferably in the design and construction of viral vectors) or in histology (immunostainings, confocal microscopy).
The PhD student will be in charge of a 4-years SNSF project and will benefit from the help of a technician at part-time. He/she will works with transgenic mice and cutting-edge viral vectors-based technologies.
The ideal candidate will be able to work independently, but eager to collaborate with other members of the team and learn new techniques. He/she will have strong skills in verbal and written communication (English required, French is an asset).
