The Federation of Neuroscience (CRNS FR3636)is a group of research laboratories on the Saints-Pères Fundamental and Biomedical Sciences campus of Paris Descartes University, located on the left bank, in the very heart of Paris, in the attractive Saint-Germain-des-Prés area of the 6th arrondissement.
It launches a call for a new research group for which 120m2 lab space will be available from early 2017. Applications in areas of molecular and cellular neuroscience, as a complement to current lines of research, are welcome. The newly recruited group will have access to state-of-the-art on-site core facilities within the building, including time-lapse, confocal and super-resolution microscopy, flow cytometry, biochemistry and a brandnew (2016) 10,000-cage animal facility, also housing viral injection, optogenetics and behavioural labs.
They are currently looking for candidates that are either:
heading an established CNRS/INSERM research team that wishes to relocate
young, talented researchers (with no restriction on citizenship or nationality), who seek kick-off funding from the ATIP/Avenir Programme or benefit from an equivalent support from other organizations.
