Functional studies of candidate pediatric cancers driver’s genes in a rare pediatric cancer.
2 - 6 months
The student will develop behavioral paradigms and new analyses based on the existing set ups in the lab (automated video-tracking, automated behavioral detection, quantitative behavioral analysis), by using both his/her ideas and existing protocols in the literature. This internship is also an opportunity to discover the Drosophila model, learn its advantages and other techniques used in the lab from Drosophula genetics to connectomics and functional imaging. The candidate will work in the team Neural Circuits and Behavior headed by Tihana Jovanic in Saclay (20 km south of Paris). NeuroPSI has state-of the art core facilities and the Saclay campus provides a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment mixing university and engineering schools, with excellent laboratories in fundamental and applied science. There will also be opprotunities for collaboration with the Janelia Research Campus (USA) and Institut Pasteur (Paris, France).Download the pdf

M1 and M2 internships available. The team of Neurogenetics of Drosophila, headed by Daniel Vasiliauskas, has a number of Masters (M1 and M2) projects available, two of which are highlighted here.Download the pdf
The hired individual (postdoctoral researcher) will contribute to research projects supported by an Equipe FRM grant, on morphogenetic mechanisms underlying eye malformations in the blind Mexican cavefish.
The « Computational Neuroscience » group of NeuroPSI Institute, and the European Institute for Theoretical Neuroscience (EITN), recruit a postdoctoral researcher for the computer modeling of neural networks implicated in decision making, in collaboration with Ruben Moreno-Bote (Barcelona).
The applicant will organize and undertake in-depth comparative studies of several mouse models holding distinct mutations in the DMD gene to address a range of cognitive and executive functions in a variety of behavioral paradigms. He/she will also perform statistical analyses, generate and archive results reports, and contribute to dissemination of the produced knowledge through scientific written and oral communications in French and/or English.
NeuroPSI is looking for a very high level candidate, able to work in a team, with a strong competence in neurosciences and particularly in neurogenetics, and a record of publications whose quality allows us to consider recruiting for a research or teacher-researcher position within the next 2-3 years.
The Human Brain Project is developing an open data repository for neuroscience, following the FAIR principles of Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability. A postdoctoral position in neuroscience data curation is available within the Neuroinformatics research group of the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience, led by Dr Andrew Davison.
A 2-year post-doctoral position is available starting February 2020, to study retina regeneration in the mouse.Download the pdf
