The Grenoble Institute of Neurosciences (GIN), an outstanding research center devoted to understanding brain functions and the development of innovative clinical therapies for neurological, neuromuscular and psychiatric disorders, is welcoming applications for positions as junior and senior group leaders.
The GIN has more than 6.000 m2 dedicated to research in Neuroscience in close proximity to many high level research centers, offering a unique opportunity for the development of trans-disciplinary projects. Twelve research teams host 240 researchers, clinicians, students and technicians. The GIN is equipped with state-of-the-art technology platforms such as MRI, EEG, TMS, a photonic imaging center (PIC-GIN), and electron microscopy providing the necessary resources for high standard and innovative research.
Research at the GIN spans from brain development to adult brain plasticity, from the molecular to the most integrated levels, using cell lines, animal models or directly on humans. Currently studied pathologies of the adult nervous system include Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, epilepsy, vascular disorders, mood and anxiety disorders.
