Description

Postdoc in SYNAPTIC PLASTICITY/ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY.

A 3-year postdoctoral position is available in the Neuroscience Research Group led by Professor Clive Bramham, Department of Biomedicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Bergen, Norway. The position is part of the project “The impact of cytoplasmic polyadenylation on local translation in neurons”, funded by an EEA grant under the Poland-Norway Research Cooperation.

The candidate will join a multidisciplinary team with expertise in molecular neuroscience, live-cell imaging, and electrophysiology.

PROJECT: The postdoctoral project focuses on novel mechanisms of mRNA polyadenylation in long-term synaptic plasticity, combining in vivo electrophysiological recording of synaptic transmission in novel transgenic mice with biochemical analysis of signal transduction events.

For further information about the project and the position, please contact Professor Clive R. Bramham, phone: +47 55 58 60 32 or e-mail: Clive.Bramham@uib.no

QUALIFICATIONS:
• The applicant must hold a Norwegian PhD or an equivalent degree within Neuroscience
• Experience with electrophysiological recordings of synaptic transmission in the brain of live rodents is required.
• Experience with local drug delivery or use of viral vectors is required.
• Experience with synaptic field potential recording using electrical or optical stimulation is an advantage.
• Experience with live-cell imaging or electrophysiology in brain slices is an advantage.
• Experience with cloning and mutagenesis is an advantage.
