Postdoctoral Position Molecular Neuroscience,INSERM, France

Research area:
Molecular and cellular mechanisms of cortical development.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position funded by the Paris School of Neurosciences (ENP) ( The project aims to identify molecular pathways and cellular mechanisms of cortical development.
The lab is hosted at the recently opened Institut du Fer à Moulin, an INSERM Neuroscience Research Center affiliated with the University Pierre & Marie Curie ( We are located at the center of Paris and closely collaborate with its vibrant neuroscience community. The institute provides access to state-of-the art core facilities for molecular and cellular biology, imaging and behavioral studies. The position is open for an ambitious and independent scientist with solid background in molecular biology; experience in areas of functional genomics could be beneficial.
