Post-doc positions in Daniel Choquet's team

We are seeking to recruit post-doctoral fellows strongly interested in cellular neuroscience, including synaptic plasticity, receptor trafficking and nanoscale organization to join a vibrant environment and exciting projects associating high resolution imaging, biosensors and slice electrophysiology to study innovative aspects of synaptic plasticity. We have developed unique tools to monitor and modify AMPA receptor nanoscale organization and trafficking in vivo and would like now to apply them to study  synaptic function with electrophysiological, molecular and imaging approaches. These approaches may be combined with behavioral assessment of memory function to understand the link between synaptic plasticity and memory storage, consolidation and retrieval.

We have developed innovative tools to study the nanoscale organization of AMPAR subunits and subtypes, to control with light their accumulation or disappearance from synapses during STP, LTP and LTD. We plan to use these tools to analyze the role of synaptic plasticity in information processing by the brain.
