Urgent in vivo freely moving electrophysiologist to hire

Position: Post-doctoral Position

Deadline: 31 December 2021

Employment Start Date: 1 February 2022

Contract Length: 1 year (possibility to extend)

City: Marseille

Country: France

Institution: Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone, UMR 7289 CNRS & Aix-Marseille Université

Department: Team Bagamore


A 1-year (possibility to extend it further) post-doctoral position is available in the team BAsal GAnglia, MOtivation & REward (BaGaMoRe), directed by Christelle Baunez, Ph.D. The project is a rat electrophysiological study on freely moving animals subjected to nociceptive stimuli. The project will combine deep brain stimulation, optogenetic and electrophysiological techniques. The investigator will work in a team composed of Christelle Baunez at the Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone (INT) in Marseille, and external collaborators Véronique Coizet (GIN, Grenoble), Paul Overton (Univ. Sheffield, UK). The INT ( is a dynamic research center with over 200 scientists/staff/students that embraces a multiscale and multi-technique approach to fill the gap between fundamental and clinical approaches. The integrative neurosciences, bridging levels of organization of the nervous system within a functional approach, play an essential role in the understanding of the neural underpinnings of our behaviour and of their dysfunctions in neurological and psychiatric diseases.


A strong background in in vivo electrophysiology acquisition and analysis is required. Women and minorities underrepresented in neuroscience/medicine are encouraged to apply. To apply, send a CV, a cover letter describing research interests, as well as names and email addresses of references to Christelle Baunez <>


Review of applications will begin immediately. Deadline for application is 31st December 2021 for a start on February 1st 2022 at the latest.
