Post-doctoral Position in neurophysiology
Description: We invite applications for one postdoctoral positions within the “ ASAP CRN 2021 Project from Michael J. Fox Foundation-Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s., supervised by Prof. Nicola Biagio Mercuri. 
This project will evaluate the physiopathological aspects of the catecholaminergic circuits in animal models of PD. To this purpose, we will exploit an array of approaches including slice electrophysiology, patch-clamp in-vitro, fluorescence imaging, Amperometry/Voltammetry, viral-mediated transduction. Applicants should have previous experience in brain slice electrophysiology, and manipulations in-vivo. Experience in patch-clamp recordings will be considered a plus. General knowledge in neurobiology is desirable. Salary and benefits are competitive to National standards. The successful applicant will be a highly motivated, pro-active candidate willing to take advantage of the multidisciplinary and stimulating environment. Applications (full CV, names and contacts of 2 referees, and statement of research interest) should be submitted.
