Post-doctoral position at the Blood-brain barrier laboratory, Lens.
Post-doctoral candidate will work at the Blood-brain barrier (BBB) laboratory. BBB-Lab is recognized as world expert in the modeling of the BBB. This team has carried out pioneering works in establishing animal models of the BBB which has been used to investigate BBB physiology and distribution of compounds for pharmaceutical industries. New BBB models have also been used to better characterize the BBB physiology in stroke (FP7 Eustroke and EU Joint programs). In 2013, the team set up a human in vitro model of the BBB which is now widely used for mechanistic studies and for permeability screenings, and consisting to cultivate CD34+-cells with brain pericytes.
Applications are invited for a 24 months post-doctoral fellowship under the supervision of Pr Fabien Gosselet. The ideal start date is around September 2018.
The successful candidate will test passage of nanoparticles across in vitro models of blood-brain barrier and effects of endothelial cells progenitors on BBB physiology.
