The blood brain barrier (BBB) or the complete neurovascular unit (NVU) is a key component of the communication between the central nervous system (CNS) and the rest of the body. The BBB regulate this communication in a highly sophisticated way and thus is also involved in many brain disorders.
As a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Neuroscience Discovery and Chemical Biology you will focus on a research project aiming at recapitulating the brain NVU in vitro using state-of-the-art bioengineering combining microfluidics and stem cell technology. The model will include all cell types in an attempt to allow the natural cell-cell communication and arrangement. Our mission is to use it to study transport of large molecules across the BBB, understanding trafficking and cellular sorting of different biological constructs.
The Roche Postdoctoral Fellowship (RPF) program is aimed at supporting excellent young scientists focusing on collaborative R&D projects between Roche and international academic institutions. Both internal Roche and academic experts will mentor you, and you will have the potential to perform hands on research in both lab environments.
The partnership with academia is an important aspect of our program's approach. This two-year postdoctoral project will be based at the Roche Innovation Centre Basel, Switzerland and you will benefit from the collaboration with a leading academic lab at University of California, San Diego.
This position is sponsored by the RPF Program and is initially set for two years, with the possibility of extension for a third year. Your responsibilities include:
To be successful in this role, you have a recent PhD in Neuroscience with a great scientific record and at least one first author publication in a peer-reviewed journal. In addition you have/are:
Please submit your application including a CV, a list of publications, a letter of motivation and 2 letters of reference.
