A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

A 2 year post-doctoral position (with a possibility of extension)  is open to study novel pathways of immune-brain interactions using tools of neuroscience, immunology and scRNA-seq at the Brain-Immune Communication (Deczkowska) Lab https://research.pasteur.fr/en/team/brain-immune-communication/

The science:

The brain is very hard to cure. Drugs have a hard time crossing the blood-brain barrier and if they do – the side effects of their activity in such a fragile environment may be disastrous. Our lab strives to describe and uncover an alternative approach to brain treatment. We study how peripheral signals, such as immune cells present at the brain borders, shape brain physiology, how the dysfunction of such communication pathways can contribute to brain aging or disease, and how we can exploit such pathways to cure the brain.  We especially explore the immune niche of the choroid plexus (one of the brain borders), and the roles and signatures of microglia and border associated macrophages (Baruch, Deczkowska et al., Science, 2014; Schwartz & Deczkowska, TrendsImmune, 2016; A Deczkowska, O Matcovitch-Natan et al, Nat.Comms. 2017; Deczkowska et al., Nat.Neurosci. 2018; Deczkowska et al., Cell. 2018, 2020). The work includes single cell RNA-seq approaches, state of the art tools of immunology and neuroscience (incl. behavioral tests), mouse models, lots of genomic data and more!

There is no specific project assigned to this position, allowing the successful candidate to propose a project, work independently and make the best out of their expertise and what our lab and Institute Pasteur can offer.

The Environment:

The project is funded through starting package of the Deczkowska lab, a lab which opened in April 2021 and currently hosts a research engineer (lab manager), a post-doc, a bioinformatician, two students and an administrative assistant.

The Institut Pasteur is recognized worldwide as a leader in the field of immunology and neuroscience, it is a highly dynamic and international academic environment in the center of Paris. Research is organized in 130 research units in 11 thematic departments, covering a wide-range of subjects including microbiology and infectious diseases, immunology, neuroscience, developmental biology, genetics and cancer. Our lab is in the immunology building and we benefit from  collaboration with other departments and access to various state-of-the-art platforms such as  (single cell analysis, bioinformatics, flow cytometry, animal facilities, microscopy, etc).

Candidate requirements:

Candidates should have a PhD with strong background in immunology and/or neuroscience, molecular biology, cell biology, genetic engineering, genomics (scRNA-sequencing) and technical expertise in murine models (MUST) and cell culture. Applicants should be highly motivated, well organized, proficient in English, and able to work independently as well as collaboratively.

Application:

Applicants should send a CV and a letter of motivation including a summary of previous research experience directly to Aleks  (aleksandra.deczkowska@pasteur.fr).
