Postdoctoral positions at Bordeaux Neurocampus

Post-doctoral position in neuroimaging  (on line  October 15 / 2018)
Applications are invited for a Research Fellow in the Aquitaine Institute for Cognitive and Integrative Neuroscience, Bordeaux France.

The successful applicant will pursue research projects on the neurobiological and computational underpinnings of the cost of cognition. These projects will combine neuroimaging and computational approaches.

The post is available from early 2019 and is funded for two years by a grant from the Agence Nationale de la Recherche.

Applicants must have, or be close to obtaining, a PhD in neuroscience, psychology, or a related area. Experience in conducting neuroscience research and in programming (Matlab and/or Python) is required. Experience in conducting neuroimaging research and in building computational models of behavior will be very appreciated.

To apply for the vacancy, or for more information, please contact Dr. Alexandre Zénon (email: Applications should include CV, motivation letter and contact information for 3 references.

2-YEAR POSTDOCTORAL POSITION - Molecular Basis of Glucocorticoids-Induced Traumatic Memories. 
A CV and 2 referee contact information should be sent to Dr. Jean-Michel Revest ( Interviews can be done over Skype

We are seeking for a postdoctoral neuroscientist
to investigate the molecular effectors underlying the effects of glucocorticoids in the memory process of stress-induced adaptive/maladaptive fear with a specific focus on the molecular basis of traumatic memories.

This project combine molecular, pharmacological and mouse behavioral approaches modeling PTSDlike traumatic memory as part of a scientific program funded by the Inserm.

Candidates should hold a PhD in Neuroscience and demonstrate expertise in the field of animal behavior and/or in vivo cell molecular/biology and biochemistry (ranging from western blot, ELISA, immunohistochemistry, imaging, etc.). A plus will be an in vitro expertise in particular in cultures of hippocampal neurons. Candidates must be curious, creative and able to work both independently and within a team.

The post-holder will be part of the Revest’s team « Physiopathology and therapeutic approaches of stress-related diseases » localized at the Neurocentre Magendie (Bordeaux, France). The specific aim of the Neurocentre Magendie is the understanding of the pathophysiology of neuronal plasticity. This multidisciplinary research Institute offers a dynamic and international environment with multiple opportunities for collaborations, seminars and workshops (

The laboratory uses a multi-level approach combining the powerful genetic toolkit available in mice and in vitro models coupled to molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, behavior and cell imaging techniques. This is a full-time funded position, starting from January 2019. The candidate is also encouraged to apply for national, European and/or international funding.

Postdoctoral position available in Clinical Neuroscience / Clinical Research, Laboratory of Nutrition and Integrative Neurobiology (NutriNeuro) Bordeaux, France/ Dr Lucile Capuron 

We are seeking a talented and highly motivated postdoctoral candidate to investigate the influence of diet and metabolic profiles on inflammation and neuropsychiatric symptoms. The project is multidisciplinary (involving neuropsychiatric/psychometric evaluations, physiological measures, biological assays and multidimensional statistical analyses) and part of a larger European joint research program.

The postdoctoral researcher will join a translational team of researchers and clinicians with expertise in neuroscience, psychobiology and biological psychiatry. He/she will be based in the lab of Nutrition and Integrative Neurobiology (NutriNeuro), which is located on the campus of the University of Bordeaux, France ( ).

Qualifications/experience: The ideal candidate(s) will have a PhD and a strong publication record
in relevant scientific disciplines.
The position is available for one year, with potential for extension.
Start date: Autumn 2018 (flexible / will be discussed with the candidate).
APPLICATIONS including a CV, motivation letter, a copy of PhD Degree diploma and 2-3 letters of reference should be sent to Dr Lucile Capuron by email (

Available Post-doctoral position in synaptic plasticity funded by ERC

Post-doctoral position in synaptic plasticity funded by ERC

We are seeking to recruit post-doctoral fellows expert in slice or in vivo electrophysiology and imaging to study AMPA receptor trafficking and synaptic function with innovative electrophysiological, molecular and imaging approaches. These approaches will be combined with behavioral assessment of memory function to understand the link between synaptic plasticity and memory storage, consolidation and retrieval.

We have developed innovative tools to control with light the accumulation or disappearance of AMPAR from synapses during LTP and LTD. In this project, we will use these optogenetic tools to analyse the role of synaptic plasticity in information processing by the brain.
Altogether, this project will shine new light on the molecular mechanism of synaptic plasticity and will be linked to behavioural studies of cognitive functions using the same tools.
The position will be financed by an ERC grant from D. Choquet for up to five years.

For this position, we are seeking highly motivated individuals, with a proven track record of success, if possible immediately after their PhD, and in any case no more than four years after their PhD. The projects will be conducted in a stimulating and highly interdisciplinary and international environment in a newly established research building, a part of the Bordeaux neurocampus project (Bordeaux, France).
