Job ID: 98859
Postdoctoral position in Integrative Neuroscience
Position: Post-doctoral Position
Deadline: 31 March 2023
Contract Length: At least 2 years
Institution: INRAE, Bordeaux University
Department: Bordeaux Neurocampus
The team « FoodCircus » led by Pierre Trifilieff and Guillaume Ferreira is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in Integrative Neuroscience to work on a project regarding dopamine transmission and executive functions. The team is part of the NutriNeuro Institute at the Bordeaux Neurocampus.
The project aims at unraveling the link between mesocorticolimbic dopamine dynamics and discrete components of goal-directed behavior. This will be performed in physiological conditions and under the manipulation of main cellular and molecular players of dopamine transmission with relevance for psychiatric disorders. The project will combine state-of-the-art operant conditioning tasks coupled with fiber photometry recordings (dopamine and/or calcium sensors) in transgenic mouse lines allowing for manipulation and recording of discrete neuronal subpopulations. The successful candidate will lead her/his own project in close interaction with the PI and other members of the team.
- Strong interest for integrative neuroscience
- PhD in Neuroscience
- Solid experience in signal analysis and/or in vivo recording
- Collaborative spirit
