We are looking for a Laboratory Technician / Lab Manager (Ingénieur d’étude) for our lab at the ICM in Paris. Our lab is interested in understanding how neurons control their energy availability (e.g. ATP) to sustain neuronal communication, a process that is essential for normal brain function. This work has the potential to further our understanding of the molecular link between dysfunctional metabolism and neurological diseases such as mitochondriopathies, epilepsy, vascular dementias or glucose metabolism diseases.
The Laboratory Technician / Lab Manager (Ingénieur d’étude) responsibilities include: organize and manage lab purchases, prepare primary cultures of neurons, prepare laboratory solutions, maintain scientific protocols for the lab and assist other lab members with data collection or analysis. Having an interest in developing your own research project is a definitively a plus.
A bachelor’s degree in a scientific discipline is required, as well as speaking fluently French and English. Previous lab experience is preferred but not essential. Experience handling rodents, preparing primary neuronal cultures and molecular biology is a plus. Must be comfortable working with rodents and human samples.
