Postdoctoral researcher, Neuroscience - 2020BAPFFBDEF048Posted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2020-Jan-23
The Laboratory for Cell Biology and Histology at the Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy for a
Postdoctoral scientist in the area of Neuroscience
Topic: microglial heterogeneity in tau pathology
Within the Laboratory of Cell Biology and Histology, our research team aims at understanding accelerated aging (e.g., Progeria) and age-related (e.g., Alzheimer) disease development from a cell biological perspective. Recently, we have used whole brain imaging, based on tissue clearing and light sheet microscopy, to stage tau pathology development in a seeded mouse model (Detrez et al 2019). We thereby identified a unique microglial response, which now intend to characterize in more detail using a combination of molecular and microscopic single cell approaches. We are therefore looking for a positive and skilled colleague who is eager to take the lead in this new, challenging study. As the Laboratory of Cell Biology and Histology also runs the Microscopy Core Facility, the successful applicant will benefit from access to cutting-edge microscopy infrastructure.
