We offer a two-years post-doctoral position in the Neurocentre Magendie in Bordeaux, France.
The goal of this funded project is to investigate the role of astrocytes in a model of stress-induced sensitization to cocaine. To this end, behavioral experiments will be combined with in vitro electrophysiology and super resolution imaging. This project will benefit of the expertise of three groups: Dr. Stéphane Oliet’s group (Neurocentre Magendie) working in neuron-glia interaction, Dr. Pier Vicenzo Piazza ‘s group (Neurocentre Magendie, INSERM U862) well known for his work on the pathophysiology of addiction, and Dr. François George’s group (IINS-CNRS UMR 5297) whose work is dedicated to the investigation of “in vivo” synaptic adaptations induced by addictive substances and stress.
We are looking for a highly motivated scientist working at least in electrophysiology in the field of astrocytes or addiction. The candidate will have the possibility to apply for our Tenure Track program.
