About the lab
The (Laboratory of Synapse Biology) at the , Belgium, is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study molecular mechanisms of synaptic specificity in developing neural circuits.
The main goal of our laboratory is to unravel the molecular mechanisms that control synaptic connectivity in developing circuits (see references below).
This project aims to use innovative proteomics approaches to investigate the mechanisms that mediate specificity of input and output synaptic connectivity in the hippocampus.
You will make use of cell type-specific Cre lines; CRISPR / Cas9-mediated tagging of endogenous proteins, and proteomics.
The role of identified candidate genes will be tested in vivo, using mouse genetics and viral vector approaches combined with (ultra)structural and functional analysis of synaptic connectivity.
We are seeking a highly motivated, enthusiastic, critical and creative individual to join our team. The candidate should have a strong interest in synapse biology and developmental neurobiology.
