Characterizing the role of oligodendroglial cells in cognitive decline during aging


We are looking for a motivated trainee to join our newly opened lab as a master 2 student (with possibility to apply to a PhD contract with the doctoral school). We are seeking someone excited to study the role of oligodendroglial cells in memory and in learning, and how their dysregulated functions in aging directly impact cognition in mouse models.
As a trainee in our lab, you will have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge research projects related to glial cells function and cognitive functions, combining in vitro and in vivo models. The candidate will be part of a collaborative team and supervised by Dr. Moyon.

Desired profile

The ideal candidate should have a background in cell biology or neurosciences. Previous experience in biochemistry, cell culture, histology, microscopy and/or live-imaging, animal behavior or electrophysiology would be appreciated. The candidate should be comfortable with mouse handling. Excellent communication and organizational skills are a must.

Host institution

The Moyon lab opened in June 2023 at the Institute of NeuroPhysiopathology (INP), on the hospital Timone campus Aix-Marseille University (Marseille, Paris). We aim at better understanding the role of oligodendroglial cells in the central nervous system, and how their functions are dysregulated in aging and in age-related diseases. We are also committed to promote diversity and inclusivity in science, by building personalized mentorship agreements with each team member.

The INP is a center of training and research that combines basic and translational research to study the organization, function and interaction of neural cells, as well as the molecular and cellular basis of major brain diseases. The INP is part of the Centre of Excellence in Neurodegeneration (CoEN) and offers an internationally competitive research environment with state-of-the-art facilities. The project will be developed at the Faculty of Medicine, located in the centre of Marseille, a few kilometers from the magnificent seafront, the Calanques National Park and the charm of inland Provence, all ideally suited to outdoor and cultural activities.
