We are looking for a young researcher with a strong expertise in biology to join a multidisciplinary team working in neuromorphic engineering and neurosystem engineering. Our goal is to bridge both fields and develop new neurobiohybrid systems enabling bidirectional communications between neuroinspired artifacts and living neurons. This work is supported by the French National Research Agency (ANR) through the program “Investments for the future” (reference ANR-16-IDEX-0004-ULNE).


In this context, we are seeking a highly motivated scientist with a strong background in cell biology, a good expertise in tissue culture of various neuronal cells (neuronal cell lines, iPSC-derived neurons and/or organotypic cultures) and demonstrated competences in electrophysiology and/or calcium imaging techniques. The successful applicant is expected to develop novel calcium imaging techniques and/or electrophysiology to evidence the actual stimulation of biological neurons (differentiated PC12 cells, iPSC gluta-neurons, etc...) by artificial ones (for more information on artificial neurons, see Sourikopoulos et al., 2017).


Additional knowledge in neuromorphic or neurosystem engineering or on artificial neurons would be appreciated.
