Call for students

We are looking for motivated students with deep interest in molecular biology and neuroscience. The lab uses advanced high throughput genomics data to tackle problems in neuroscience using the mouse as animal model. Available projects include the use of the following methodologies: Single-cell RNA sequencing, advanced fluorescence in situ hybridization imaging, dissection and isolation of brain…

ERC Start Up grant – and we’re hiring Post docs

After 1 ½ years at the Technion the lab is equipped and running – and we managed to land generous funding for the upcoming 5 years! The ERC Start Up grant is awarded to high risk – high gain research, so we plan to venture deep into in vivo neural networks, combining transcriptomics and connectomics at the single cell…

2 open PhD positions

Our lab is growing and we currently have openings for two PhD students. The lab uses advanced high-throughput genomics data to tackle problems in neuroscience using the mouse as animal model. We thrive at the intersection of molecular- and neurobiology, technology development and computer science and therefore encourage highly motivated students from diverse backgrounds to apply. …

Molecular Architecture of the Mouse Nervous System out in Cell!

We’re happy to see our Atlas of the Mouse Nervous System published in Cell this week! At Sten Linnarssons lab we sampled roughly 500 000 single cells across 19 regions of the nervous system, and provide a taxonomy of 265 cell types, their detailed molecular phenotypes and spatial distribution. Read the paper (Open Access) and browse our…
