Postdoctoral position: “Transcriptomic and epigenomic regulation of neuronal plasticity” Group -----

A postdoctoral position is available in our research team at the Instituto de Neurociencias (UMH-CSIC) in Alicante, Spain.
Our research focuses on the transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of neuronal plasticity processes, including learning and memory, and its involvement on intellectual disability pathoetiology. To this end, our laboratory applies a multidisciplinary approach that combines molecular biology, mouse genetics, genomics behavioral analyses and electrophysiology.

We are currently looking for two profiles:
(a) Extensive experience in molecular and cellular biology techniques, especially in the analysis of chromatin and gene expression.
(b) Experience in electrophysiological recording in brain slices or/and in vivo. Experience in optogenetics will be also valuated.
In both cases, this experience should be supported by first author publications in top scientific journals.

Funding is available for an initial period of 12 months starting in April 2018 (renewable). Application, including description of research accomplishments and technical expertise, references, and CV including list of publications should be sent to:
