Description

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position open from the 1st of October 2020 for an initial period of 2 years in the group of Dr. Hélène Marie & Jacques Barik.
In the context of the European project MILEDI funded by the FLAG-ERA HBP (https://miledi.lsmuni.lt), the research will focus on analyzing the acute impact of peptides cleaved from the amyloid precursor protein (APP) on neuronal function (synaptic plasticity and intrinsic excitability). The collected data will be used to study the peptides’ effects with in silico modeling through the collaboration with our biophysics and mathematics MILEDI partners. For this research, we will use pharmacology and in vivo viral expression of peptides coupled to field and patch-clamp electrophysiology on mouse brain slices (Willem et al Nature 2015; Pousinha et al, eLife 2017; Pousinha et al. Cell Reports 2019).
For more information about the team and the institute, please visit http://www.ipmc.cnrs.fr.
Highly motivated candidates holding a Ph.D. preferably with a background in neurosciences and expertise in whole-cell electrophysiology are encouraged to apply.
For consideration, please send a CV, bibliography, a brief description of research
experience and interests and the names of two references with telephone numbers and email
addresses to marie@ipmc.cnrs.fr.
