Post-doc position in Neural Circuits and Behavior in Drosophila
Paris-Saclay, France

A postdoc position is available to join the Neural circuits and Behavior team headed by Tihana Jovanic in the Cognition and Neural Network Department at Paris Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (NeuroPSI).
The team uses Drosophila larva as a model system to map neural circuits using a multidisciplinary approach that combines neural manipulation during behavior, electron microscopy (EM) reconstruction of neuronal connectivity at a synaptic level and recording of neuronal activity using Calcium imaging in the Drosophila larva with the goal of understanding computational principles underlying complex behaviours and their modulation by the context and internal state.
More details about the team can be found here:

We are seeking applications of highly motivated individuals, preferably with background in neuroscience. PhD in neuroscience, biology or related fields is required. Experience in Calcium-imaging and/or programming will be appreciated.

The work will include connectivity analyses based on EM reconstruction as well as optogenetics and Calcium-imaging and there will be opportunities for national and international collaborations, and specifically within consortium of teams in US, Germany and France funded by the Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience program to address the mechanisms and computational principles of predictive learning.
Anticipated start date is spring 2022

Paris Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (NeuroPSI) is located in Saclay (20 km south of Paris) and is dedicated to fundamental research in Neuroscience. NeuroPSI has state-of the art core facilities and the Saclay campus provides a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment mixing university and engineering schools, with excellent laboratories in fundamental and applied science.

For more details about the project and position please contact Tihana Jovanic
Candidates should send a CV, a motivation letter and contacts of two references
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
