++ The project is fully funded for up to four years.

++ We are looking for a highly motivated and proactive team player with experience in the culture of human derived neurons from iPSCs and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing. Experience in animal experimentation, in particular behavioral tasks, would be a plus. The appointee must have a Masters level degree or equivalent. The candidate should also have a good level of proficiency in English.

++ The team is a member of the Bordeaux Neurocampus — a center of excellence for neuroscience research in France.

++ Interested applicants should send a cv, brief statement of research experience and interests, and names of 2-3 references.
