We are currently accepting applications for a 2-year-funded postdoc research position (possibility for an extension) for a collaborative project of the labs of Andreas Frick and Bruno Bontempi. The goal of this project is to identify the neurons engaged in recent and remote memory formation in the neocortex and to investigate and probe the neuronal mechanisms underlying memory formation. For relevant literature please see (Zhang et al. & Frick, 2014, Nature Neuroscience; Frick et al., 2004, Nature Neuroscience; Lesburguères et al. & Bontempi., 2011, Science; Frankland & Bontempi, 2005, Nature Reviews Neuroscience).
Bordeaux is one of the foremost centers for neuroscience in Europe, and has recently been named one of the few centers of excellence in neuroscience by the National Research Agency in France. Both host labs are participants in this consortium and part of the Neurocampus consisting of three institutes that are connected to each other and that provide a very dynamic and international environment.
We are seeking a candidate with a PhD or MD/PhD degree in the fields of neurobiology, biophysics, medicine, or related field with a demonstrated record of achievements and publications. Candidate must be highly motivated to perform challenging experiments combining opto-/pharmacogenetics, electrophysiological and biochemical approaches with behavioral learning tasks.
