Prof. Marquet’s Laboratory has launched a strong program aiming at modeling the neurodevelopment component of major psychiatric diseases including schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and major depression disorder, using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The main goal of this research is both to identify cellular biomarkers and to obtain a better understanding of the pathogenesis of these debilitating diseases for which there are only palliative treatments. Prof. Marquet’s Laboratory is located at the CERVO Brain Research Centre. The project is part of a highly competitive research endeavor, and offers excellent perspectives for scientific career development.
We offer a great team spirit within a interdisciplinary environment , state-of-the-art equipment and work technology (new cutting-edge multimodal live cell imaging, a large library of recombinant AAV vectors expressing fluorescent sensors, availability of core units for proteomics and transcriptomics, etc.).
Under the supervision of the principal researcher, the candidate will have to perform the following tasks, among others, with the help of laboratory technicians: • Developing and optimizing protocols for the neural differentiation of human iPSCs.
• Design and perform experiments on human iPSC-derived neuronal cells with different techniques including ICC, FACS, qPCR, western blot, single cell analysis, as well as multimodal super-resolution live cell imaging developed in the Laboratory
• Write and review of scientific articles
• To maintain knowledge of current developments in the field of research notably by attending international congresses and workshops.
