Role of hippocampal CB1 receptors in juvenile obesity-induced memory impairment – Bordeaux, France


Our research project aims at investigating the role of CB1 receptors within the hippocampus in mediating memory deficits in obesogenic diet-fed mice. This work is part of a close collaboration between the lab of Guillaume Ferreira and Giovanni Marsicano (Busquets-Garcia et al.,  Mol Psy 2017, Neuron 2018).

Technical details

We are looking for a candidate with expertise in chemogenetic or pharmacology combined with behavioral testing and/or in vivo calcium imaging (fiber photometry). The successful candidate will use viral vectors and transgenic mice.

Required profile

Highly motivated candidate with a PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience or related fields are encouraged to apply. A strong experience in viral-based strategy to manipulate behaviors would be appreciated.


The position is available from September 2019 for one year, with potential extension for 9 months. The salary will depend on experience.

Please send a letter of interest, a full CV, and the coordinates of 2 referees to Guillaume Ferreira () before July 1st 2019.
