POST DOC – Whole cell patch clamp in brain slices(Job Number: 00000FC3)
The Neuroscience Drug Discovery group of Janssen Research and Development, Beerse, Belgium,is looking for a POST DOC– Whole cell patch clamp in brain slices,
in close collaboration with Innovative Medicine Initiative (IMI) precompetitive consortia.
Using animal models of monogenetic diseases leading to ASD, key behavioral and anatomical phenotypes have been shown to be responsive to drug intervention. We are looking for a post doc scientist with experience in whole cell patch clamp in brain slices to investigate synaptic dysfunction in ASD animal models and Alzheimer models, working in our electrophysiology group.
We are looking for enthusiastic scientists with a keen interest in research into neurodegeneration and cognition, most specifically in Alzheimer’s disease and Autism Spectrum Disorders. A strong drive to add new insights to these fascinating but challenging fields of research as well as a wish to (team)work in an international, multidisciplinary research environment with state-of-the-art capabilities are key prerequisites. A minimum of a PhD with experience in relevant areas of neuroscience is required. The candidates should have a track record of scientific publications in international , peer reviewed journals and experience with relevant technologies, experimental design and statistical data analysis.
It is further expected that the candidates will develop effective relationships with other (industrial and academic) partners of the IMI consortia to further develop those tasks and models, will demonstrate high level of scientific credibility and develop an expertise in the area of research, will serve as a point of contact, participate in regular conferences arranged by those partners, and – at the level appropriate to the grade of seniority – will also represent Janssen on these consortia.
