Postdoctoral Fellow – AAV Expert
We are looking for a highly motivated Ph.D. with substantial AAV expertise. Our targeted gene therapy team at Aix-Marseille University is developing cutting-edge strategies to treat mouse models of Rett syndrome. Rett syndrome is a severe neurological disorder caused by mutations of the MECP2 (Methyl CpG binding protein 2) gene, located on the X chromosome. The posdoc would play a pivotal role in this team by designing new AAV vectors as well as developing innovative approches to target the brain. The AAV vectors generated will be used to correct/cure the « Rett Syndrome » phenotype in mouse models. In vivo phenotyping and molecular/cellular évaluations will be performed.
Salary: Salary is commensurate with experience.
Duration: 24 months to provide from September 2018
Requirements: Ph.D. with >2 years experience working with AAV vectors and in vivo delivery, molecular biology, and mice phenotyping.
