The project received funding from the The NeuroCoG network (Initiative of Excellence from the University Grenoble-Alpes). It includes a broad range of approaches such as the use of yeast biology and neuronal cultures as well as a collaborative work with a CEA team specialised in biophysics. The postdoctoral fellow will also work with tissue from various species including mice, rats, primates and others and will use several techniques such as electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, aptamers and Crispr-Cas9.

The successful candidate is expected to hold a PhD in neuroscience and to have some background in neurodegenerative diseases. He/she should be able to demonstrate good expertise in in vitro work, basic techniques of molecular biology and microscopy.
