Postdoctoral position in Neural Stem Cells/iPSCs
A Postdoctoral position is available at the Department of Physiology of the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) to study neuronal differentiation from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to model the sleep disorder narcolepsy.
The project will aim at characterizing hypothalamic neurons derived from iPSCs of narcolepsy patients and control subjects. It includes generation of iPSCs from fibroblasts or PBMCs, hypothalamic neuronal differentiation, transcriptome and proteomic analysis, in-vitro electrophysiology and basic immunology.
At least 60% of the working time will be dedicated to personal research
Candidates should have a PhD in neurobiology, molecular biology, cell biology or related fields. The successful candidate must have a strong background in working with human stem and iPSC cells with demonstrated expertise in generation of human iPSCs and human neuronal differentiation. Additional expertise in cell biology, molecular biology, neurobiology, fluorescence microscopy, and flow cytometry and electrophysiology is preferred.
Approximate Salary $80,000
Duration: 2 years
