Amygdala circuits and neuromodulatory mechanisms.
Our lab investigates the architecture and function of amygdala and fear-related circuits and the cellular and synaptic mechanisms underlying fear learning and memory in mice. The applicant will work within an ERANET-funded consortium project to study amygdala synaptic neuromodulatory mechanisms and their role in autism spectrum disorder mouse models. The project will use a combination of viral gene transfer in vivo, ex vivo optogenetic circuit mapping and brain slice electrophysiology, as well as conventional and optopharmacology (Asede et al, Neuron, 2015; Zussy et al, Mol Psychiatry, 2018).
We seek a highly motivated, analytical and curious individual with good communication skills and the ability to work independently and in a team. Excellent command of English, strong work ethics, a solid background in neuroscience, and substantial expertise in at least one of the above laboratory techniques is required.
We offer a stimulating scientific environment in a small, dynamic team, with state-of-the-art facilities and individually tailored training. Tuebingen and the Hertie Institute offer a vibrant Neuroscience community where multiple interactions are possible.
Applications should include a cover letter stating research interests and previous experience, a short CV, publication list, and names and contact information of two referees.
Applications should be submitted as a single pdf file via email to: Applications will be accepted until position is filled.
