Description

The Busche lab (buschelab.com) is seeking an exceptional individual who will lead an industry funded (Roche) research project focused at uncovering how microglia and neurons interact in Alzheimer’s Disease in-vivo, and that will apply novel approaches to determine whether pathophysiology is reversible. The project will involve recording neuronal activity and microglia dynamics using state of the art two-photon imaging and/or patch-clamp electrophysiology in mouse models, and applying cutting-edge single cell transcriptomic methods.

The Busche lab is a highly interactive environment, with strong collaborations across the UK DRI as well as with researchers at UCL and other renowned institutions.The successful candidate will be self-directed with excellent research skills, and capable of working collaboratively within a team of international multidisciplinary researchers, while displaying independent thinking and initiative. This is an outstanding opportunity to work independently on a high impact, state-of-the-art project in a stimulating vibrant research environment. In particular, the post-holder will have the unique opportunity to work in close collaboration with scientists at Roche, one of the world’s leading global research and development-based pharmaceutical companies, and to spend some time at their headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.

The post is available from 1 February 2021 and funded by the Roche Postdoctoral Fellowship programme for the period to January 2023 in the first instance.
