Open Position: Cellular Electrophysiologist

UPDATE 2017-05-29: Position still open. 

We are seeking a talented and enthusiastic researcher with expertise in cellular electrophysiology to advance investigations on the functions and mechanisms of neurotrophic signaling networks in the adult nervous system. The research entails functional assessment of neuronal circuits in the brains of mutant mice lacking different neurotrophic factor receptors in specific subpopulations of neurons.

Candidates will be accepted at the postdoctoral level with a PhD awarded preferably within the last 5 years. Strong and documented expertise in electrophysiological methods as applied to studies of the rodent central nervous system, such as electrophysiological recordings from brain slices, is a requirement for consideration. Experience on calcium imaging would be an advantage.

The successful candidate is expected to be sufficiently independent to set up electrophysiological methods at our laboratory, including supervision of purchase, installation and maintenance of the necessary equipment.

Applications, including CV, list of publications and statement of future interests should be sent to Prof. Carlos Ibanez . Applicants should arrange to have at least two confidential letters of reference sent independently by referees to this email address.

Funding is available for an initial period of 3 to 4 years, starting any time during 2017.

Open Postdoctoral Position: Molecular / Cellular Neurobiologists

UPDATE 2017-05-29: The position has been filled. 

We are seeking a talented and enthusiastic researcher with expertise in molecular and cellular neurobiology to advance investigations on the functions and mechanisms of neurotrophic signaling in the nervous system. The research entails studies of death receptor signaling pathways in cell culture models as well as phenotypic characterisation of mutant mice carrying specific mutations in neurotrophic factor receptors. Please refer to our recent list of publications in this area HERE.

Candidates will be accepted at the postdoctoral level (PhD awarded within the last 5 years). Strong and documented expertise in cellular, molecular and histological methods as applied to studies of the rodent nervous system is a requirement for consideration. Experience with genetically modified mice is highly desirable. The successful candidate is expected to be sufficiently independent to formulate questions, design experiments and perform research.

Our group belongs to a network of laboratories dedicated to different aspects of neuroscience research and provides a strong environment for scientific growth and career development.

Applications, including CV, list of publications and statement of future interests should be sent to Prof. Carlos Ibanez . Applicants should arrange to have at least two confidential letters of reference sent independently by referees to this email address.

Funding is available for an initial period of 3 years, starting any time during 2017.

Deadline for application is March 7, 2017.
