(Institut Pasteur, Paris, France)
The laboratory of Zebrafish Neurogenetics, led by Dr. Laure Bally-Cuif at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate to contribute to our ongoing research on adult neurogenesis in zebrafish. We are especially interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying basic adult neural stem cell properties, including the control of their quiescence, their interactions with other neural stem cells of the germinal niche, and their recruitment towards the generation of specific neuronal identities. The analysis will involve genetic approaches, whole-mount imaging and cell tracing in the adult animal.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in biology, and a strong interest in molecular and cellular neuroscience. Previous experience with the zebrafish and with imaging and genomic techniques is preferred. Proficiency in English is required.
The position is funded by the European Research Council and Labex Revive.
The Bally-Cuif team is one of the 16 research groups of the “Developmental and Stem Cell Biology” Department of the Pasteur Institute, focusing on evolutionary, developmental and stem cell biology in various animal models. It is also co-affiliated with the Pasteur “Neuroscience” Department.
