OpenPosition@NICO - prof. Buffo NSC-RECONSTRUCT

A Postdoctoral Fellowship is available in the Physiopathology of Neural Stem Cell group at the Neuroscience Institute Cavalieri Ottolenghi (Orbassano, Torino, Italy), led by Annalisa Buffo. The fellowship is funded within NSC-Reconstruct, a 4-year H2020 European Union supported Project coordinated by Prof. Elena Cattaneo - University of Milan (Deputy Coordinator: Prof. Malin Parmar - Lund University).

We are seeking for a highly-motivated, communicative and inventive postdoc who will be part of an enthusiastic team and of the NSC-Reconstruct collaborative network. The main focus will be to reconstruct complex functional striatal circuits through the integration of human striatal neurons and glia grafted in preclinical models of Huntington’s disease. We will work toward this aim by combining control of graft composition, control of the host injured milieu and modulation of circuit
plasticity.

Job Qualifications:
- PhD in Neuroscience or related disciplines
- at least one-first author paper in an international peer reviewed journal
- strong background in neuroscience
- hands on experience in in vivo work on rodents, imaging, fundamental molecular and cellular biology and behavioral analyses
- experience with in vivo calcium imaging and recordings are an asset
- independent thinker able to work in a collaborative and multidisciplinary project

Interested candidates should send a CV, a motivation letter and two letters of recommendation to Prof. Annalisa Buffo, via email: annalisa.buffo@unito.it 

Closing date, September 15, 2020.

Position available starting from the end of 2020.

Agenda

29 gennaio 2021
11 febbraio 2021

Virtual Meeting STEROIDS and NERVOUS SYSTEM

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the 11th International Meeting on Steroids and Nervous System and the associate Satellite Symposium have been moved to 2022, but, in order not to totally miss our meeting, together with the Scientific Committee, we have decided to organize a virtual event that includes 5 plenary lectures, a series of short free communications presented by young researchers and also a poster exhibition.

Sportello LESIONI SPINALI

Mandateci le vostre domande

Premesso che al NICO ci occupiamo di ricerca di base (e non abbiamo quindi pazienti in cura), crediamo sia compito di noi ricercatori dare risposte chiare e soprattutto scientificamente corrette a chi incorre in notizie parzialmente false, scorrette o addirittura in vere e proprie bufale.
Il caso Stamina ci ha insegnato a essere vigili: un piccolo soffio di vento, se “seminato” in un terreno fertile, può infatti scatenare una pericolosa tempesta.

Da qui la volontà di creare questo sportello, uno spazio dedicato alle vostre domande e ai vostri dubbi. Un progetto nato in sinergia con il Coordinamento Para-Tetraplegici del Piemonte, con cui siamo in contatto da molto tempo, e con il Prof. Diego Garbossa, Primario di Neurochirurgia di Città della Salute e della Scienza di Torino, con cui abbiamo creato un team che riunisce ricerca base e neurochirurgia.
