Postdoc in Neurobiology at VU Amsterdam: In Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) researcher from different disciplines and backgrounds work together on innovations and on generating new knowledge. Department of Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology (MCN), Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam invites online applications from experienced researcher with background of electrophysiology for filling up a 4-year post-doc position within the project on Balancing The Imbalanced Brain available at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology (MCN) of the Center of Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research (CNCR). The aim of MCN department is to discover processes of synaptic function and neuronal plasticity across many levels of organization, from molecules up to behavior in animal models of human brain disease.
About position: Selected candidates will explore in a rat model of depression, using cell type-specific interventions, whether ECM disturbances and/or intrinsic changes in inhibitory neuron activity are the driving force for the molecular and behavioral changes observed. This research will focus on intrinsic (PV and pyramidal neurons) and network activity of the hippocampus, as well as behavioral and molecular effects.
Duration: 4 year,
Salary: €2,709 to €4,274 (scale 10).
Educational qualifications: Interested candidates should have PhD Degree in electrophysiology with interest and skills in behavioral and molecular/cellular neuroscience.
Closing Date: 15 March 2020.
How to apply: Interested and eligible applicants apply online mode as a PDF file through the given link by or before 15 March 2020 along with their curriculum vitae, a list of publications, relevant certificates and the names and contact details of two scientific referees.
Contact No: Please you may contact to Prof. dr Sabine Spijker, Team leader, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
