Post-doc, slice physiologist -cellular neuroscience and synaptic plasticity in Bordeaux – Meet @SFN 2022

Position: Post-doctoral Position

Deadline: 28 February 2023

Employment Start Date: 2 January 2023

Contract Length: 1 year renewable up to 5 years

City: Bordeaux

Country: France

Institution: CNRS

Department: Bordeaux Neurocampus


We are seeking to recruit a post-doctoral fellow interested in cellular neuroscience with strong expertise in slice physiology, including synaptic plasticity, receptor trafficking and nanoscale organization to join a vibrant environment and exciting project associating high resolution imaging, biosensors and slice electrophysiology to study innovative aspects of synaptic plasticity. We have developed unique tools to monitor and modify AMPA receptor nanoscale organization and trafficking in vivo and would like now to apply them to study  synaptic function with electrophysiological, molecular and imaging approaches. We have developed innovative tools to study the nanoscale organization of AMPAR subunits and subtypes, to control with light their accumulation or disappearance from synapses during STP, LTP and LTD. We plan to use these tools to analyze the role of synaptic plasticity in information processing by the normal and diseased brain.

Altogether, this project will shine new light on the molecular mechanism of synaptic plasticity and will be linked to behavioral studies of cognitive functions using the same tools.
The position will be financed by ERC and ANR grants from D. Choquet for up to five years.

For this position, we are seeking a highly motivated individual, with a proven track record of success and expertise in slice physiology, if possible immediately after their PhD, and in any case no more than four years after their PhD. The projects will be conducted in a stimulating and highly interdisciplinary and international environment in a newly established research building, a part of the Bordeaux neurocampus project (Bordeaux, France).
