PhD student position in neuroscience: neural bases of appetitive and aversive memories


A PhD position is open in the team “Molecular and Neural Coding of Behavior” to work with Stephanie Trouche (https://orcid.org/0000-0003-1708-8435 ; https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Stephanie_Trouche2) at the Department of Neuroscience, Institute of Functional Genomics, CNRS, INSERM, University of Montpellier, France (https://www.igf.cnrs.fr/en/). Our research aims to study the neural circuit and mechanisms of appetitive and aversive memories in mice by combining electrophysiological, anatomical, behavioral (learning and memory tasks) and genetics-based techniques. The project involves stereotaxic surgeries, image acquisition/analysis, in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics and data analysis.

Profile:

The candidate must have a background in Neuroscience, Cognitive Science or Engineering, and experience in rodent behavior. Hands-on experience in intra-cranial surgeries, electrophysiological recordings and data analysis (Python/Matlab) would be a plus.
The applicant is expected to have very good verbal/written communication skills in English and a critical approach to scientific literature.


Funding:

This position is for 3 years (ANR JCJC DYNAFEAR, PI: Stephanie Trouche), starting from Fall 2020 or early 2021.
 

Applications including:

a 1-page cover letter,

CV,

a detailed statement of skills

contact details for two-three referees,

should be sent to stephanie.trouche@igf.cnrs.fr

 

Deadline for application: August 15th 2020.
