Doctoral/postdoctoral positions in Human Genetics / Clinical Neuroscience
Prof. Sébastien Jacquemont group is working on a large translational project covering genetics, genomics, as well as clinical and neuroimaging aspects aiming at the characterization of the 16p11.2 rearrangements. This research project is done in tight collaboration with the LREN (Prof. B. Draganski) and the CIG (Prof. A. Reymond). We are recruiting talented individuals with different levels of research experience and interests in clinical neuroscience, genetics and/or neuroimaging.
The position requires a strong interest in clinical as well as statistical and translational work. The successful candidate will perform clinical phenotyping on a restricted set of standardized clinical measures. Clinical, computational brain anatomy and genetic data will be analyzed in one integrated dataset. Candidates should be trained in medicine or psychology.
This project offers a stimulating, young, and international environment and is performed in state of the art facilities.

Doctoral position in Neurophotonics
The Imaging and Plasticity Unit (IPU) at the centre for psychiatric neurosciences (CHUV/UNIL) is recruiting a PhD student to conduct an interdisciplinary research aimed at developing and using a multi-modality approach including Digital Holographic Microscopy (DHM), video fluorescence microscopy, and electrophysiology to explore the astrocytic and neuronal transmembrane water movements, volume regulation as well as ion homeostasis mediated by rapid and long term neuronal processes (action potential, synaptic events, vesicular release, functional and morphological plasticity etc.).
Applicants with the following profile are welcome to apply:
- Master’s degree in technical science such as physics or microtechnologies.
- Strong background in optics and/or life sciences.
Deadline: end of March (every candidate will be personally contacted)
