PhD student fellowship
Functional characterization of brain G protein-coupled receptors

The Institute of Interdisciplinary Research (IRIBHM) is a large biomedical research department of University of Brussels Medical School (ULB), with state of the art facilities and groups active in biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, development, cancer, neuroscience and bioinformatics. A strong expertise has been established in the field of G protein-coupled receptors, particularly the functional characterization of novel receptors.

The IRIBHM recruits a PhD student for studying new G protein-coupled receptors and their potential role in CNS disorders. This will involve the determination of the natural ligands and function of a set of orphan receptors expressed in the central nervous system, and the development and analysis of mutant zebrafish lines.

The fellowship will start on November 1, 2018. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until position is filled.
