We are seeking an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher with a molecular biology background and research experience in neurodevelopment and/or neuroimmunology to join the lab on an exciting project funded by a FWO Project Grant. The overarching goals of the project are to elucidate how neuronal embryonic progenitor origin shapes the integration of neurons within the adult basal ganglia and associated structures and how perturbations at the level of embryonic progenitors can impact the development and function of these neuronal circuits (see e.g. 1,2). To investigate this, we will use a combination of techniques including in utero electroporation, electrophysiology, RNAseq and proteomic approaches and well as behavioural analysis. It is also expected you can assist with other ongoing research or activities of the group and contribute to the supervision of PhD students. Opportunities exist also to help with teaching activities, and we will support you with personal grant applications for FWO and/or MSCA funding and you can assist with the preparation of grant applications of the lab.
