Happy holidays from all of the team at Scientifica! Please note our closing times over the holiday period: 21st December - 1st January 2019
Contract length: 2.5-3 years
Starting date: October, 2018
Closing date: Open until filled
The Institute of Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology (IPMC) are inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in the team of Dr. Jacques Barik. The lab has a general interest in understanding how rewarding and stressful experiences trigger neuronal and synaptic dysregulations that lead to maladaptive behaviors. The proposed project will aim at understanding the neuronal circuits that sense and adapt to stress and nicotine exposure, and how they reciprocally affect their impact on midbrain dopamine systems (See Morel et al., 2017 Mol. Psychiatry). The project received funding for 2.5-3 years from the Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale.
The IPMC seek a highly-motivated and enthusiastic candidate with experience in ex-vivo electrophysiology to perform patch clamp recordings on brain slices. Training in optogenetics will be a plus. Strong communication and critical thinking skills, as well as a dedication to teamwork and collaboration are qualities sought after. Language used in the Institute is English.
The IPMC is located in Sophia Antipolis, a European technology park, and lies 20 km away from Nice. Our Institute provides access to two animal facilities fully equipped for breeding and behavioral analyses, A2 labs for viral manipulations and imaging facilities.
How to Apply
Salary will be commensurate to experience. Contract Oct. 2018 – Jan. 2019.
Applications should include a detailed CV, a short motivation letter and the names/emails of two referees, and sent to Jacques Barik at [email protected]
