Ref: Senior Research Fellow in Neuroscience (Cardiff University) on line December / 5 /2016


A Senior Research Fellow position funded by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions COFUND scheme will be available in the second half of 2017-early 2018 in the Laboratory of Prof. Riccardo Brambilla, at the Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute, Cardiff University (UK).

The candidate, with a strong track record in cellular neuroscience and a desirable background in neurophysiology and animal behavior, will take advantage of state of the art technological approaches recently set up in the laboratory that include microendoscopic analysis of large neuronal ensemble in freely moving rodents and optogenetic interrogation in vivo. A number of animal models for neuropsychiatric disorders are available in the lab and the candidate, in order to be successful, will need to show a significant degree of independence by proposing an ambitious and coherent plan of investigation over 3 years. This is a research only position. However, the successful candidate will also be invited to participate in teaching activities within the Undergraduate Neuroscience and Physiology Degree Schemes and Postgraduate Neuroscience Programmes at Cardiff University in order to develop the necessary skills to subsequently apply for a Tenure Lecturer position.


The ideal candidate should hold 3-5 years of postdoctoral experience and several first name publications (including work in revision). In order to be considered, a CV (including the complete list of peer review publications) and a short personal statement (2 pages max) should be submitted directly to Prof. Brambilla (brambillar@cf.ac.uk) before January 15 2017.

Postdoctoral Fellow — Inserm — Neurovascular Diseases

Two postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Anne Joutel (MD, PhD) at Inserm, Paris, France in the Department of Genetics and Pathogenesis of Cerebrovascular Diseases.
Our lab focuses on small vessel diseases of the brain, a group of diseases that are among the main causes of stroke and dementia worldwide. Our goal is to uncover key insights into the cellular and molecular basis of these devastating conditions, and to develop new therapies. We use genetically engineered mice as well as iPS cells and tissues from patients, and apply multidisciplinary approaches including molecular, biochemistry and histology as well as mass spectrometry/proteomics and vascular physiology.
The successful applicants will be exposed to extensive networking opportunities through established National, European and Transatlantic Networks of Excellence on the pathogenesis of small vessel diseases of the brain.
The applicants must hold a PhD or MD or MD/PhD degree within the last 0-2 years, and should have experience with vascular biology, biochemical approaches, and immunohistochemical techniques on the brain. The position is available from January 2017 for an initial one year-appointment which may be renewable for up to four years total based on performance.

Interested applicants should send a CV, statement of research interests, publications list and contact details for 3 references — all documents within a single PDF file — to anne.joutel@inserm.fr.



Post doctoral position in Grenoble / on line September 15 / 2016

Transport and Intracellular Distribution of Zinc in Neurons

A post-doctoral position is available to study the transport and intracellular distribution of zinc (Zn) in cortical neurons. This cation is a vital element exerting widespread and fundamental roles in biology. For instance, the brain has a high Zn content and some neuronal cells (e.g. in the cortex and hippocampus) have the ability to accumulate Zn into their synaptic vesicles. Extracellularly, Zn modulates the activity of many ion channels and receptors. This metal now appears as a potent and endogenous neuromodulator influencing synaptic transmission but it is also a key intracellular second messenger.

However, the molecular mechanisms participating in its homeostasis in neuronal cells are still ill-defined. The project wishes to i) identify the actors participating in the import/export and intracellular storage of Zn in cortical neurons, and ii) to determine its 2D and 3D distribution in cultured cortical neurons and in the whole cortex.

This work will be performed in close collaboration with 2 other groups based in Grenoble (ESRF) and Lyon (Institut Lumière Matière).

• Location: Laboratory of Chemistry and Biology of Metals (UMR CNRS 5249, Grenoble, France).
• Starting date: March 2017. • Duration: 18 months.
• Financial support: French National Research Agency (ANR, 2016). The salary will be based on the CNRS guidelines for post-doctoral positions.
• How to apply: Applicants with less than 3 years of experience after their PhD must have a good expertise in one of the following techniques: molecular biology, biochemistry, live-cell zinc or calcium imaging.

Interested candidates should send their CV (with a short description of research experience) to: Alexandre Bouron UMR CNRS 5249 CEA 17 rue des Martyrs 38054 Grenoble France Tel : (00 33) 4 38 78 44 23 alexandre.bouron@cea.fr

Subject: POST DOCTORAL POSITION
One postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Neuroscience laboratory of Dr. Karine Fenelon, in the Department of Biological Sciences at The University of Texas at El Paso. Our interdisciplinary basic and translational research is focused on neural pre-attentive mechanisms and the transfer of this knowledge into animal models of psychiatric and neurological diseases. The successful candidate is expected to develop a research program to study the intrinsic and synaptic activity of neurons at the core of pre-attentive brain circuits using electrophysiology and Optogenetics.
Qualifications: The ideal candidate should have 1) a Ph.D. in neuroscience, biophysics, physiology or a related field. 2) Extensive expertise in electrophysiological recordings in brain or spinal cord slices (ie., patch clamp and extracellular field recordings). 3) Strong skills in stereotaxic surgeries.
Our geographic location, on the border of the United States and Mexico, makes UTEP charming and ­­­unique. UTEP students live and study in the world’s largest bi-national metropolitan area, unlike any other university setting. In addition to its border setting and beautiful mountainous terrain, El Paso consistently ranks as one of the safest cities of its size in the U.S. The sun shines 302 days per year on average in El Paso, 83% of daylight hours, according to the National Weather Service; from this, the city is nicknamed "The Sun City". El Paso is known for its diverse artistic and cultural life, affordable cost of living, and a highly family-friendly environment.
