Institute: Centre de recherche du CHU de Québec-Université Laval
Location: Quebec, Canada
The Topolnik Lab at the Neuroscience Axis of CRCHUQ at Laval University is seeking outstanding applicants for Postdoctoral positions in Neural Circuits and Cellular Neurophysiology. Various CIHR-supported projects are available to work on the functional organization of hippocampal inhibitory circuits, with a focus on circuit disinhibition, interneuron dendritic integration and the role of these mechanisms in animal behavior.
The Topolnik Lab studies hippocampal inhibitory circuits using a variety of optophysiological approaches such as whole-cell patch clamp electrophysiology, two-photon and miniscope-based Ca2+ imaging and optogenetics in brain slices in vitro and in awake animals during learning and memory tasks. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art installations completely dedicated to our research.
For more information about our lab, please visit our website at www.neurowire.ca
Successful candidates should have a PhD in Neurobiology or a related discipline, and at least two first-author papers (published or accepted) to demonstrate their expertise. Prior experience with patch clamp electrophysiology, optogenetics or Ca-imaging (in vitro or in vivo) is required
How to Apply
To apply, send your Research Interests Statement, CV and transcripts to Prof. Lisa Topolnik: [email protected]. In your cover note, highlight the particulars of your background and give the names and contact information of two individuals for references.
