The Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (Neuro-PSI) is moving in 2018 into a brand new building on the campus of the Paris-Saclay University, 25 km South of Paris. The Institute is supported by CNRS, Université Paris-Sud and Université Paris-Saclay.
Neuro-PSI is dedicated to fundamental research in Neuroscience. Organized in four departments, Neuro-PSI comprises 25 teams addressing a wide range of questions in neuroscience, from molecules to cognition and from embryos to adults, with multiscale experimental and theoretical approaches. In 2018, Neuro-PSI will move to a brand new building next to the NeuroSpin institute for brain imaging. Together, the two institutes will form the largest Neuroscience center in the Paris area. Neuro-PSI will provide access to state-of-the art core facilities for cutting edge light microscopy and scientific computing. The building will also include animal facilities for aquatic and terrestrial species as well as a fish transgenesis platform. Genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and electron microscopy are available at close proximity.
Neuro-PSI is located next to the NeuroSpin institute for brain imaging. Together, they form the largest Neuroscience center in the Paris area. The Paris-Saclay campus provides a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment in fundamental and applied science through Université Paris-Sud and top-ranked engineering schools.
We are recruiting new group leaders at junior or midcareer level to develop research programs addressing fundamental aspects of neuroscience across the whole spectrum of the Neuro-PSI research fields. Candidates should already hold a permanent position or meet the criteria for applying to a position in French research institutions (CNRS, INSERM, Université Paris-Sud). Installation packages will be provided by the Institute but candidates are encouraged to apply for additional funding.
Applicants should send a CV, a description of their research interests (5 pages including scientific achievements and research program), and 3 recommendation letters which should be sent directly to email@example.com
The deadline for applications is June 1st, 2017. Pre-selected candidates will be interviewed between July and October by an International Scientific Board and the Neuro-PSI steering committee.
A final decision will be communicated by November 2017
Application deadline : June 1st 2017
Interviews : July-October 2017
