Available post-doctoral position in synaptic plasticity funded by ERC

On line: June 25, 2018 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…
