POSTDOC position at Neuro-PSI


A postdoctoral position is available at NeuroPSI (Gif-Sur-Yvette, France) in the group of Sophie Creuzet ”Neural Crest : Development and Evolution”. The project is focused on the implication of neural crest-­‐derived meninges in brain homeostasis. It aims at understanding how the cephalic neural crest (CNC), a multipotent structure, which provides the developing forebrain with meninges and a functional microvasculature, exerts a deterministic role in the biology and physiology of choroid plexus, and regulates the production of cerebro-­‐spinal fluid. More specifically, our project aims at understanding how the dysfunctions of CNC cells, and the meninges they form, could affect the development of the intracerebral vascular network and eventually cause neurodevelopmental defects.
