Post-doc at Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience, France – Evolution of brain development in cavefish
We are seeking a highly motivated individual, preferably with background in fish developmental biology and experience in scRNA-Seq. Interest for evo-devo will be a plus.
The candidate will contribute to research projects supported by an Equipe FRM grant entitled « Neurogenetics of the blind cavefish, Astyanax mexicanus ».
The candidate will work in the team “Development and Evolution of the Forebrain” headed by Sylvie Rétaux, at the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (Neuro-PSI) on the CEA campus of Saclay (25km south of Paris). His/her central project will be to develop and perform comparative scRNA-Seq and functional analyses on Astyanax cavefish and surface fish.
The postdoctoral contract will start early 2022 for one year (with possible one-year extension).
