    We have a postdoctoral position available in our lab to study microglia biology in the zebrafish embryo. The project will focus on investigating the bidirectional crosstalk that takes place specifically between microglia and neurons, and whose importance in physiology and disease is increasingly supported. We aim to decipher whether neuronal networks modulate microglia identity and functions during the critical period of embryonic development, and whether such interactions may contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders. You will use state-of-the-art approaches that include, among others, confocal and light-sheet microscopy, transgenesis, CRISPR/Cas9 mutagenesis, opto- and chemo-genetics, and single cell omics.

    Candidates must hold a PhD degree for no more than 5 years.
    Eligible applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Belgium for more than 12 months during the 3 years preceding the start of the position.
    Candidates should have at least 1 first author publication.
    Previous experience working with zebrafish is an asset but not required.
    A neuroscience background with technical knowledge of GCaMP based imaging analysis is highly desirable.
    A very good command of spoken and written English is required and sufficient for communication within and outside the laboratory since Brussels is very international.
