Recruiting top PhD students and postdocs in Bordeaux to explore the extracellular space of the brain
Are you intrigued by one of the great and last frontiers in neuroscience?
Thanks to an ERC Synergy Award received by the teams of L. Groc, E. Bezard, L. Cognet and V. Nagerl in Bordeaux, we are launching a mission deep into the extracellular space of the brain: how it is structured at the nanoscale level and how it governs molecule dynamics and cell-to-cell communication in the healthy and diseased brain, using a battery of advanced investigation tools, in particular based on high-resolution optical microscopy, and model systems. It is a fiercely multidisciplinary and collaborative project calling for geeks and freaks who are terminally enthusiastic about optical-, nano-, neuro-technologies to name a few, and brain science. Mission headquarters will be a new joint OpenLab at the Neurocampus of Bordeaux (
