Postdoc position: GDNF signaling in GABAergic interneuron differentiation and migration

A postdoctoral position is available for experienced neurobiologists to join our team investigating the role of GDNF and its receptors in the control of cortical interneuron development and function (see Pozas et al. Neuron 2005 and Canty et al. J. Neurosci. 2009). The aim of this research is to elucidate novel pathways regulating the diversification, migration and allocation of cortical inhibitory interneurons. In order to tackle these questions, we have at our disposition a battery of conditional and inducible mutant mouse lines which will be available for analysis at the start of the project.

We are seeking a talented, innovative and enthusiastic researcher with a PhD awarded within the last 4 years. Highly motivated candidates with a genuine interest in developmental neuroscience, signal transduction and mouse genetics are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to candidates with strong expertise in one or more of the following areas: mouse forebrain development, cell transplantation, birth dating and lineage analyses, neuron primary culture, cell signaling assays and cell microscopy.
