Neural bases of aversive memory consolidation during sleep : interactions between the hippocampus and the amygdala
at the Institut du Fer-a-Moulin, Paris, France
The team "Sleep and Emotional Memory" at the Institut du Fer-a-Moulin (IFM) in Paris is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow for a fully funded 2-years position. We study the neural mechanisms involved in the « off-line » (i.e. sleep and rest) processing of memories, with a particular interest in emotional memories and anxiety.
Candidates must hold a PhD degree in Neuroscience, Cognitive Science or Engineering applied to neuroscience. Experience in in vivo electrophysiology (head-fixed or freely moving animals), in vivo optogenetics and/or large electrophysiological data analysis and coding (Matlab/Python) is required.
The team was recently created at the IFM, a Neuroscience research institute located in the Latin Quarter, and awarded an Avenir grant from the Inserm. The institute currently hosts 8 internationally renowned groups in the field of brain development, plasticity and pathology and offers a stimulating, inclusive and collaborative environment.
