Description

POSTDOC POSITION IN THE BIOLOGY OF EXTRACELLULAR VESICLES IN HUNTINGTON'S DISEASE -

This postdoc position is supported by Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) and available in the team Brain-C 'Compensatory systems in Neurodegenerative Diseases & Aging' at the Institute of Biology Paris-Seine in Paris.

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. These 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 Ph.D. 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 consortium involving IBPS, the Institut Curie in Paris and GIN in Grenoble. This combination provides an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated fellow interested by precision cell biology and the study of intercellular communication mediated by EVs in the normal and pathological brain.

Interested candidates should provide a detailed CV, a letter of motivation and a minimum of 2 names of reference.
