Junior Postdoc positions at the Developmental Neurobiology lab

The Developmental Neurobiology lab located in Brussels, Belgium is seeking junior postdocs with “international mobility” status (i.e. who did not reside or work in Belgium for more than 24 months in the last three years).

The main purpose of research in our laboratory is to understand the mechanisms underlying the development of the nervous system, with a particular emphasis on the role of cell polarity in neural development. We use several molecular and cellular methodologies, including embryonic stem cells, transgenic mice design & production, neuroanatomy, live imaging, slice culture, as well as other in vitro assays (See selected publications below).

The positions are funded on a yearly basis for up to 3-4 years. Selected candidates will analyze the neural phenotype of mouse models bearing gain and/or loss of function mutations. These models are homemade and already available in the lab. In utero electroporation will be used in some cases to overexpress specific genes.

Expertise in cell biology and live imaging is required. Candidates with developmental neurobiology background will be preferred.

For applications, please email fadel.tissir@uclouvain.be
