Open position: Post-doctoral positions in Molecular/cellular Neurobiology
Three post-doctoral positions in Molecular/cellular Neurobiologyare available immediately in the Laboratory of Molecular and Chemical Biology of Neurodegeneration (http:// lashuel-lab.epfl.ch/) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland ( www.epfl.ch ).
The selected candidates will work on projects aimed at elucidating the molecular determinants and cellular pathways that trigger and regulate protein misfolding, aggregation, and propagation in cellular and animal models of neurodegenerative diseases.
The desired applicant must have a Ph.D. degree and strong track record of accomplishment in one of the following fields: molecular and/or cellular biology, cellular biophysics, molecular neuroscience, neurobiology, or developing animal models of disease.
Candidates with experience in working with viral vectors, DNA repair pathways, protein homeostasis and/or animal models or neurodegeneration or related diseases are especially encouraged to apply, although experience in the field of neurodegeneration is not a must.
We are looking for highly motivated individuals to work as members of an interdisciplinary group working at the interface of chemistry and biology in collaboration with world-renowned research groups at the frontiers of neuroscience and brain research. Very good writing and communication skills are important, and the ability to be a team player and interact with several groups is a must.
The qualified candidate will benefit from working with a very dynamic and multidisciplinary group in a highly collaborative and stimulating environment and access to state of the art laboratories and core-facilities and a competitive salary .
Interested applicant should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of three references to Ms. Marie Rodriguez.
