Postdoctoral positions at Bordeaux Neurocampus

on line  / 2018 / July 10
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 (www6.bordeaux-aquitaine.inra.fr/nutrineuro ).

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 (lucile.capuron@inra.fr).

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).
