Postdoctoral position in neural circuit research

< Retour à la liste

  • Type d'offre : CDD
  • Ville : Basel (Switzerland)
  • Statut : Recrutement en cours
Date d'arrivée à l'ITMO : Mercredi 22 Juin 2022

The project

We are recruiting a highly motivated scientist to join our team working on in vivo imaging and identification of cellular and molecular mechanisms of cortical circuit development and function in mice. We are a cellular/molecular neuroscience lab and study the development of neuronal connectivity in health and disease states.

We are establishing innovative genetic marking and sensor approaches for advanced in vivo imaging and in vivo cell biology studies. Our projects bridge molecular work on cell type- and synapse-specific functions to imaging and behavior.

Your profile

The successful candidate should be highly motivated to contribute to our efforts on dissecting mechanisms of neural circuit and synapse formation. They are expected to take a leading role in 2-photon imaging experiments (data acquisition and analysis), aligned with molecular studies on synaptogenesis and plasticity. Experience with 2-photon equipment, data acquisition, and programming experience are required. In addition, we expect excellent communication and organizational skills, and the ability to work as a team member.

We offer

Work in the Scheiffele Lab is supported by state-of-the-art facilities in optical and electron microscopic imaging, computational biology, genomics, and research IT, as well as excellent mechanic and electronic workshops. The Biozentrum is based in the vibrant city of Basel, Switzerland, which offers an exceptional scientific and cultural environment.

Application / contact

Please submit your application, including your CV, motivation letter and email addresses for 2 referees.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
