The laboratory of Neuronal Circuits of Associative Learning at the University of Bordeaux, Neurocenter Magendie (INSERM U1215), France (https://www.neurocentre-magendie.fr), is seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our team dedicated to identifying the neuronal circuits mediating fear behavior. Our main focus is to identify the neuronal circuits, mechanisms and coding scheme of active and passive fear reactions using state of the art in vivo recordings approaches coupled to optogenetic and behavioral manipulations.
The candidate should have a strong motivation to succeed in science as well as excellent organizational and communication skills. Experience with in vivo single unit recordings and/or in vivo imaging and signal analyses is very welcome. Qualified applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Neuroscience or related field.
Candidates should submit their CV and a one page cover letter outlining their research interests, along with contact information for at least two references, to Dr. Cyril Herry (cyril.herry@inserm.fr). Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Postdoctoral position in Neurophysiology

We are currently searching a highly motivated Postdoctoral researcher with experience in electrophysiology for a project focusing on the study of the role of hypothalamic-mesolimbic neurocircuitry in the development of diet-induced obesity. This project will be jointly carried out in the laboratories of Dr. Daniela Cota (Inserm U1215, Neurocentre Magendie, Bordeaux, France http://www.neurocentre-magendie.fr/cota) and Dr. Xavier Fioramonti (NutriNeuro, INRA UMR 1286, Bordeaux, France, https://www6.bordeaux-aquitaine.inra.fr/nutrineuro ), which both investigate the neurobiological mechanisms of obesity and diabetes. Patch-clamp electrophysiology associated with the use of optogenetics, molecular biology and neuroanatomical analysis are the main approaches that will be used in the project.

Candidates should have a doctoral degree in neuroscience/neurobiology, and recognized expertise in patch-clamp electrophysiology. Previous experience in the study of neuronal circuits involved in the regulation of energy balance using rodent models and in the use of optogenetics coupled with electrophysiology is strongly preferred. Ability to work both independently and cooperatively within a team will be essential.

The project is funded by the Labex Brain (http://brain.labex.u-bordeaux.fr ). The postdoctoral contract will be for a period of 18 months.

Starting date: January 2018

Contact: Candidates should send their CV, motivation letter, list of publications and 2 letters of reference to Dr. Daniela Cota (daniela.cota@inserm.fr) or Dr. Xavier Fioramonti (xavier.fioramonti@inra.fr).

Offensive sur le syndrome de l'X fragile et de l'autisme : une étude qui conforte la théorie de la défensive sensorielle et la possibilité d'un traitement pharmacologique.

Le syndrome de l'X fragile est une maladie neurodéveloppementale et la principale cause génétique d'autisme. Dans une publication qui vient de paraitre dans la revue Neuropsychopharmacology, le groupe de X. Leinekugel (Neurocentre Magendie, équipe A. Frick) donne corps à une hypothèse clinique dite de "la défensive sensorielle", ainsi qu'une piste de traitement pharmacologique potentiel.
