Description du poste
A position for a talented and highly motivated postdoctoral researcher is available within the team SysFate led by Marco Antonio Mendoza. The successful applicant will work in a highly stimulating environment to pursue an exciting visionary cross-disciplinary project. The study will involve wide range of techniques including stem cell culture, cerebral organoid generation, spatial transcriptomics. The candidate will have the opportunity to grow independently and get involved in one or various of our current exciting projects focused on modeling aberrant events like Glioblastoma or Alzheirmer’s disease on organoid models. Our final goal is to discover fundamental mechanisms at the basis of complex nervous tissue formation and to enhance our understanding of related neurodegenerative diseases.
Description du profil recherché
- We are seeking highly motivated, successful, and creative individual(s) with a background in neuroscience, stem cell biology, organoid cultures and with an enhanced curiosity on novel functional genomics technologies.
- Ph.D. or equivalent degree in neuroscience, stem cell biology or any related field.
- Outstanding record of primary author publications from prior training
- Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
To apply, please submit your CV and a cover letter summarizing your research experience and interest along with the three references to:

Niveau d’étude : Bac >=5
Description du laboratoire
The “French National Center of Sequencing; GENOSCOPE”, located at the south of Paris, is a world-wide known institution due to its participation in the international human genome project. Among its various research teams, SysFate (Systems Biology of Cell Fate decisions) is part of the laboratory of Systems and Sythetic Biology (LiSSB).
SysFate is focused on studying the organization of complex living systems as an ensemble of multiple cellular components issued from cell fate differentiation events driven by major gene regulatory programs. SysFate ambitions to use cerebral organoids as an in-vitro system allowing to study cell differentiation and specialization from a spatio-temporal context. This in-vitro system is scrutinized with the help of modern functional genomics strategies to address nervous tissue formation within normal conditions but also under genetically aberrant settings leading neurodegenerative events.
