Postdoctoral Fellowship

Postdoctoral Fellowship

Date: Mar 6, 2019

Location: Braine L'alleud, Walloon Brabant, BE

Post-doc fellow in Neurodegeneration, Neuroscience Discovery Biology

Job Location: Braine L'Alleud, Belgium

To strengthen our research line to identify novel drug targets for neurodegeneration, we are currently hiring a talented PhD for a 3-year post-doc position to join the Neuroscience Discovery Biology group based in Braine L'Alleud, Belgium. The aim is to understand underlying mechanisms of age-related neurodegeneration and to validate newly identified targets and pathways in trans-differentiated neurons of patients. The post-doc scientist is expected to implement novel technologies to study age-related neurodegeneration 'in-a-dish', set-up high-content imaging and omics approaches and apply CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing to identify novel targets. In order to achieve this goal we are seeking a highly skilled, lab-based post-doc scientist in neuroscience, ideally with expertise in the field of neurodegeneration. The post-doc scientist will work in a multi-disciplinary and collaborative environment.
