The project “Neurogenesis and Neuroprotection” is one of the Excellence Projects laureates of the Offensive Sciences 2012 and granted by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) within the framework of the INTERREG Upper Rhine Program. The Consortium Neuro-Rhine (coordinated by Mensah-Nyagan AG, Strasbourg, France) in charge of the project is composed of 10 laboratories located in Germany, Switzerland and France.

Funding is available for a postdoctoral researcher to perform a multidisciplinary and translational study to characterize novel neuroprotectors and/or neurogenic agents for the development of innovative therapies against neurodegenerative disorders and peripheral neuropathies. We are urgently seeking for a candidate having a strong expertise in both molecular/cellular biology and behavioral studies.

The successful fellow will join the laboratory of Professor Mensah-Nyagan in Strasbourg (France) for 2 years starting as soon as possible. Since the project is an international one, the candidate will have the opportunity to interact with various partners of the Consortium Neuro-Rhine. The research unit directed by Professor Mensah-Nyagan has recently been labeled by INSERM (Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale). Therefore, in case the successful candidate has an excellent CV and is well motivated during the postdoctoral period, he/she can also be supported by the research unit for an application to a permanent researcher position at INSERM. Interested applicants should send their CV, motivation letter and contact information to
