Postdoctoral Positions in Neuroscience, Washington University

Do you want to illuminate the “dark matter of the brain” by watching neuromodulators and their intracellular effectors in action? Do you wonder why we spend a third of our life sleeping? Do you seek to become a bridge builder between cellular and systems neuroscience? Two postdoctoral positions are available to investigate the role of neuromodulator actions and sleep functions in Dr. Yao Chen’s laboratory in the Department of Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis.

Scholarship for PhD in Parkinson's Disease, NeuRA

The study will investigate region-specific changes in glymphatic function and determine any association with the protein accumulation and cell death that gives rise to the clinical disease. These important human brain tissue studies will determine whether alterations in the glymphatic system underlie neurodegeneration in PD and DLB and whether improving glymphatic activity may represent an avenue for disease prevention and/or treatment.

Applications close on 1 June 2021

Postdoc position available in the Department of Neuroscience to study the role of the thalamus in the dynamics of population activity in the sensory cortex

A post-doctoral position is available from February 2021 on a collaborative research project led by Dr. Mehdi Adibi (STARS Starting Grant) and Prof. Stefano Vassanelli (NeuroChip Lab) in the Department of Neuroscience (DNS), University of Padova. The project aim is to study the role of thalamic input in the spatiotemporal dynamics of population activity in the somatosensory cortex.

The project will employ new extracellular array electrophysiology technologies using Neuropixels probes and ECoG grid arrays in rodent model in vivo.A post-doctoral position is available from February 2021 on a collaborative research project led by Dr. Mehdi Adibi (STARS Starting Grant) and Prof. Stefano Vassanelli (NeuroChip Lab) in the Department of Neuroscience (DNS), University of Padova.

The project will employ new extracellular array electrophysiology technologies using Neuropixels probes and ECoG grid arrays in rodent model in vivo.

The successful applicant is expected to have fundamental knowledge of electrophysiology in animal models, preferably rodents (in anaesthetised or awake preparations), and able to perform extracellular recording using microelectrode arrays. Basic knowledge of neuronal data analyses such as spike sorting and LFP signals is essential. Competency in the use of Matlab or Python is required for data analysing. A basic understanding of optogenetics is recommended.
