The candidate should have a solid expertise in cellular electrophysiology and strong interest in neurotransmitter receptors, as well as synaptic transmission and plasticity. A background in molecular biology and molecular pharmacology and signalling would be a plus.
An 18-month post-doctoral position is available at the Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Diseases of MIRCen (Molecular Imaging Research Center, France) of the CEA center of Fontenay-aux-Roses (5 km south of Paris) to work on the study and modeling of the cytoarchitecture of the human cerebral cortex.
We are looking for a postdoc candidate funded by the ATIP-Avenir programme to study how diabetes impact primary sensory neurons and dorsal spinal cord interneurons subtypes leading to impairment of somatosensation.
The candidate should have a strong motivation to succeed in science as well as excellent organizational and communication skills. Experience with in vivo single unit recordings and/or in vivo imaging and signal analyses is necessary. Qualified applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Neuroscience or related field.
We are looking for motivated candidates with a strong background in stem cell culture and differentiation and interest in technological developments, willing to join an interdisciplinary environment, involving interactions between biologists and physicists.
The candidate must hold a PhD in biology. She/he should be highly motivated and show strong interest in the microbiota-gut-brain axis field and/or neurophysiology and/or neurogastroenterology.
Experience in electrophysiology would be appreciated but is not required. The candidate should have a good level of proficiency in English and have excellent organization and communication skills as the project involves collaborations between 3 labs.
Candidates should be 2-5 years post-PhD, have experience in rat behavioral testing and in one of the techniques mentioned. Candidates with quantitative background (computational neuroscience, physics, engineering, mathematics) and computational skills are particularly encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in neuroscience, neuropharmacology or related disciplines and a strong background in epilepsy and animal models (epilepsy, anxiety, depression). Experience in surgery and immunohistochemistry is required. The candidate is expected to be familiar with EEG recordings. Speaking French will be an advantage.
A post-doc position is open in the team "Neural bases of sensorimotor learning" at INMED in Marseille. Our research aims to study how neuronal network dynamics in the cortex and striatum are associated to specific cerebral functions such as motor learning and procedural memory. The aim of our project is to characterize network connectivity and dynamics in relation to memory formation and to dissect cell-specific roles in population activity, using a multi-scale approach from synapses to neurons to neuronal circuits. Our approach combines novel techniques including multiphoton imaging, optogenetics and electrophysiological multi-recordings in ex vivo and in vivo transgenic mouse models.
Topic: Subthalamic nucleus involvement in social regulation of alcohol consumption
Profile: Experience with behavioral testing in rats, self-administration procedures (drugs, alcohol), brain surgery
Computer programming, deep brain stimulation technique will be considered as a plus
Starting before the end of 2020
