POSTDOCTORAL CANDIDATE INTERESTED IN APPLYING FOR A BEATRIU DE PINOS IN NEUROSCIENCES
Pathophysiology of Nervous System Disease
Are you a postdoctoral researcher thinking about your next career move? Beatriu de Pinós grants (BP ) are a great option if you are an experienced researcher looking to give your career a boost by working abroad.
Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona allows you to work in a first class research environment while benefitting from an attractive salary to cover living, travel and family costs.
Group and project information
Applicants will be integrated into the research group “Kinases and Phosphatases in neuronal function and dysfunction”; (P.I.: Esther Pérez-Navarro)
Our group is interested in the study of molecular mechanisms participating in the control of the voluntary movement and cognitive processes in physiological state, and how they are altered in Huntington's disease (HD) in order to identify new therapeutic targets. In addition, we are interested in identifying, at the peripheral level, biomarkers of the neuronal dysfunction that occurs in the brain of HD patients. To perform our studies, we use HD mouse models, in which we analyze behavior by using motor and cognitive tests, and blood, fibroblasts and post-mortem brain samples of control individuals and HD patients.
