A PhD position in Neuroscience / Circadian Rhythms, is available at the Stem Cell and Brain Research Institute, INSERM U1208 in the team “Chronobiology and Affective Disorders” (Bron, France).
Our research’s theme aimed at understanding how vision adapts to the day/night cycle and investigates molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the circadian clock system located in the retina of rodents. The project will examine how this local circadian clock is synchronized daily to the light/dark cycle and the relative contributions of the different retinal photoreceptors in this process. 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.
We are looking for highly motivated applicants with a background in neuroscience/circadian rhythms
The fully funded position will start in spring 2019.
Applications should include a cover letter, brief summary of previous research, CV and references.
