The Cortical Plasticity group at the Neurocentre Magendie (Bordeaux, France) is seeking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to join their group in Fall 2017
In this project, we are examining the pathophysiological modification of neocortical circuits in different models of autism spectrum disorder. To probe changes in crucial cellular parameters in these transgenic mouse models, we will use a combination of in vitro patch-clamp and two-photon calcium imaging approaches together with single-cell RNA sequencing and pharmacology.
The successful candidate will be initially funded for two years with the possibility of extension. Excellence will be a primary criterion for selection, but experience in electrophysiology and calcium imaging are a bonus. The candidate must have a PhD or equivalent qualification in either neuroscience, life sciences, medicine, or physics. The candidate should also have a good level of proficiency in English.
The team is based at the Neurocentre Magendie, an INSERM research institute, and member of the Bordeaux Neurocampus — a centre of excellence for neuroscience research in France. The day-to-day language is English, but support would be provided for learning French if the candidate so wishes.
