It will involve a multidisciplinary approach, using various transgenic mouse lines and including following techniques: immunohistochemistry, qPCR, laser capture microscopy, in vitro bioluminescence (classical or microscopy-coupled), DREADD technology.
The candidate should have a recent PhD (less than 2 years), be motivated, independent and have a solid expertise in neuroscience/circadian rhythms/retinal biology and training in cell/explant culture and molecular biology. Full qualification for working on animals will be appreciated. The position is initially to 24 months; prolongation for up to 30 months is possible.
