Two postdoctoral positions immediately available
in Christian Neri laboratory, Paris, France

Position 1 (3 years) : Neurodegenerative disease pathogenesis

The research focus is on inherited forms of neurodegenerative disease 
(notably Huntington’s disease). Research will be primarily based on 
cultures of mouse neurons and human molecular genetics. Research will 
benefit from the knowledge available on cell survival modulators as 
generated in the laboratory using C. elegans genetics. Previous 
experience in mammalian neurobiology and physiology is mandatory. An 
excellent background in molecular biology is required. Previous 
experience in invertebrate genetics will be a plus. There is no 
restriction on the citizenship of applicants.

Position 2 (3 years) : Therapy of neuromuscular diseases

The research focus is on inherited forms of muscular dystrophies. 
Research will be primarily based on the construction and 
characterization of new models of disease protein cytotoxicity, and 
their use to identify active compounds and their targets. Research may 
also involve the use of mammalian cell models. A strong experience in C. 
elegans genetics is mandatory. An excellent background in molecular 
biology is required. A strong interest in drug discovery and 
degenerative diseases is desirable. There is no restriction on the 
citizenship of applicants.

Please send curriculum vitae and the names of three references by email
