Job ID: 86522
PhD position to study myelin
Position: Ph.D. Student
Deadline: 30 September 2022
Employment Start Date: 1 November 2022
Contract Length: 1 year
Institution: Achucarro Basque Center for Neuroscience
We are interested in recruiting a motivated candidate (PhD student) to cover a research position at the Department of Neuroscience (UPV/EHU) and at the Achucarro Basque Center for Neuroscience.
The laboratory offers a 1-year contract funded by the Basque Government. However, it is expected that the successful candidate is able to attract funding of his/her own fellowship from the Basque Government, UPV/EHU, FPU program or La Caixa Foundation. The candidate will use chemogenetics in conjunction with electrophysiology and two-photon functional imaging to understand the impact of oligodendrocyte stimulation in myelin plasticity, in synaptic function and in behavior.
The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary and highly collaborative environment and will benefit from access to frontline technical resources, under the supervision of the Principal Investigators of the project Dr. María Domercq and Dr. Edgar Soria.
More information at:
- High academic record (>8) to apply for regional, national and international calls
- Master’s degree in Neuroscience, Molecular Biology or any related field
- Fluency in written and spoken English
- Recommendable previous experience in electrophysiology or functional imaging
Candidates should send a cover letter stating their willingness to take up the position and their CV (including the degree’s academic record) and if possible reference letters to Dr. Maria Domercq indicating “PhD candidate” in the subject header asap and no later than September 30th 2022.
