Contexte : L’Etat de Repos chez le petit animal est un état cérébral mental physiologique particulier qui correspond aux périodes aux cours desquelles le cerveau fonctionne sans entrée, consigne ou sortie forcée. Ces périodes d’état de repos représentent une fraction notable de la période d’éveil, et peuvent aussi bien s’étendre sur de longues plages temporelles (plusieurs minutes) que durer de brefs instants. Outre l’intérêt que présente en soi la connaissance des bases neurales de cet état cérébral, celle-ci se révèle par ailleurs indispensable pour effectuer une analyse fine des données de neuroimagerie cognitive. En effet, en neurosciences cognitives et en neuroimagerie particulièrement, l’état de repos est fréquemment employé, explicitement ou implicitement, comme état de référence dans les paradigmes expérimentaux. Les bases neurales de cet état cérébral particulier font donc l’objet depuis quelques années d’un intérêt croissant.

We are seeking for candidates to apply for a Marie Curie Fellowship under the 2014 H2020 Marie Curie Actions program. Considering that this program promotes mobility and cooperation between European countries, applicants’ previous research activity shall be developed in an EU member state other than Spain. Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in Biology, Neurosciences, Physiology or related sciences at the time of the proposal deadline (September 11th 2014) or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience, as specified in the call:

Description: Neurorepair Team ( at the Neurovascular Research laboratory (Vall d’Hebron Research institute,, in Barcelona) is looking for a PostDoctoral Candidate to join the lab. during spring 2015. Our goal is to study both angiogenesis and neurogenesis in experimental and human studies to improve brain function and neurorecovery after stroke from a translational perspective. The candidate will participate in one project studying cellular and molecular markers of angiogenesis in a cohort of stroke patients under rehabilitation therapy, and posterior translation of the results into cellular and animal models. Also the collaboration with other projects of the lab. is expected.

POST-DOCTORAL POSITION - Inflammatory vascular remodeling and microenvironmental homeostasis


Dr. Christian Stockmann, MD,

Paris- Cardiovascular Research Center - Inserm U970

Team 11 – Inflammatory vascular remodeling and microenvironmental homeostasis 

56 rue Leblanc, 75015 Paris

Tel: 0033 1 53 98 80 11

e-mail : 



The research team "Inflammatory vascular remodeling and microenvironmental homeostasis" is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to lead a research project on myeloid cell-driven angiogenesis during tumor relapse after chemotherapy using different mouse models of cancer. This postdoctoral position will be based in PARis Cardiovascular research Center. It will start as soon as possible and will be initially limited to 12 month with a possible extension. There is no nationality restriction. The working language will be French and/or English.


In the context of chemotherapeutic treatment, it is becoming increasingly recognized that the architecture of the tumor vasculature and its functionality, rather than blood vessel counts, determine the therapeutic outcome by controlling drug delivery as well as microenvironmental conditions. In most tumors,  blood vessels significantly differ from normal vascular networks and are characterized by inefficient blood supply despite high vasculature density. Hence, a better understanding of mechanisms involved in the regulation of drug sensitivity is indispensable for improved cancer treatments. Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) is a major angiogenic factor and we have shown that deletion of VEGF in tumor infiltrating myeloid cells leads to improved functionality of intratumoral blood vessels, alleviated tumor hypoxia and increased susceptibility to cytotoxic agents in mouse models of cancer. However, most of the studies focus on the initial response of tumors to therapy, and preclinical studies on avoidance of tumor relapse are lacking... (lire la suite)

Post-doctoral Research Associate

University of Sheffield UK - Department of Neuroscience

Faculty: Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health
Contract Type: Fixed-term for three years
Working Pattern: Full Time
Salary: Grade 7, £28,685 to £36,298 per annum with potential to progress to £39,649
Job Reference Number: UOS007813
We are seeking a highly motivated scientist to carry out research projects in Translational Cerebrovascular Disease. We are exploring innovative cerebroprotection strategies with the central purpose of developing novel clinical therapies for devastating vascular diseases of the brain. You will have an excellent research and publication track record and will contribute to the work of an internationally recognised research group. You must possess excellent organisation skills and the ability to interact well within a group. You should be qualified to PhD level (or equivalent) in Neuroscience or Biological Sciences and have experience and interest in translational research.
You will use in vivo and in vitro approaches to determine the molecular and cellular pathways that underlie preconditioning and cerebroprotection in the brain. We have already identified candidate pathways but these require further elucidation. After elucidation, pharmacological manipulation of the most ‘promising’ pathway would be the next step with the aim of developing a clinical therapy.
Expertise with cell culture (neuronal and astrocytic) and focal ischaemia models of stroke would be a considerable advantage
