PhD position (ANR funding) on axon regeneration in Paris

Position: Ph.D. Student

Deadline: 10 October 2022

Employment Start Date: 2 January 2023

Contract Length: 3 years

City: Paris

Country: France

Institution: Sorbonne Université- UMR8246

Department: Neuroscience Paris Seine - Institut de Biology Paris Seine


We are seeking for a highly motivated PhD student to work on molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in axonal regeneration after traumatic injury, using mouse models in vivo and primary cell cultures. The project aims to further understand the involvement of specific microtubule-associated proteins in axon fate following an injury. An expertise in cell biology, and imaging is expected as well as in neuroscience. Training in animal experimentation will be an advantage. The project will start in January 2023 (ANR fellowship), in the team “Axon degeneration and Regeneration” at the Institute of Biology Paris Seine, Sorbonne University.
