Description

2-year postdoc position in circuit neuroscience at the Center for Proteins in Memory (PROMEMO) - 966187.


The new Center for Proteins in Memory (PROMEMO) at Aarhus University invites applications for a postdoc position in circuit neuroscience. The position is funded by The Danish National Research Foundation and is initially for two years with the possibility of extension. The preferential starting date is as soon as possible.


THE AIM OF THE PROJECT is to progress our understanding of memory proteins and their role on synaptic plasticity and behavior, and more specifically to elucidate the role of synaptic plasticity proteins at mammalian amygdala networks. The applicant will perform cell electrophysiological/ optogenetic experiments in rodent amygdala and emotional-related circuits (e.g., Bazelot et al., Neuron, 2012; 2015; Capogna, Curr Opinion Neurobiol., 2014; Bocchio et al, Neuron, 2017).

QUALIFICATIONS:
The ideal candidate has experience in electrophysiology and optogenetics in vivo and/or in vitro. A PhD degree in Neuroscience or related subjects is required. The successful applicant is expected to be able to manage the project, develop novel technical approaches, conduct firm, kind and thorough supervision and be a good team player.

PLACE OF WORK:
The working place will be the Department of Biomedicine at Aarhus University and will be part of a multidisciplinary Center of Excellence addressing memory from a variety of angles.

CONTACT:
For further information contact Professor Marco Capogna, e-mail: marco.capogna@biomed.au.dk.
