Description

A Post Doc position is available (preferred start: Sptember2019, contract duration: 22 months) funded by a Fondation de France grant at the iBrain Institute, located at Tours (Loire Valley, France). We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed colleague to conduct preclinical research to investigate the mechanisms underlying rTMS-induced remission in a mouse model of depression. We look for a combination of expertise, ideally behavioural tests, surgery, immunohistochemistry, optogenetics, TMS application and in vivo calcium imaging.

The research will be embedded at the iBrain Institute, which is an Inserm multidisciplinary unit integrating research in Psychiatry, studies in cellular/molecular neuroscience and investigations aimed at developing new technologies for diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric disorders. It gathers experts in acoustics, chemistry, genetics, philosophy, psychiatry, linguistics, medical imaging, mathematics, neuroscience, philosophy, physics and radiochemistry. Its main objective is to develop personalized therapies for psychiatric disorders, in particular autism and treatment-resistant depression, based on specific biomarkers predicting the efficacy of a given treatment.

Salary will be at approx 35 000 euros/year (incl taxes), according to the experience of the applicant.
