Postdoctoral position in “fMRI mapping of mouse social brain circuits

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) s a private law Foundation, created with special Government Law no. 269 dated September 30th 2003 with the objective of promoting Italy’s technological development and higher education in science and technology.  Research at IIT is interdisciplinary and addresses basic and applied science through the development of novel technical applications.

We are looking for a highly motivated post doc to join the Functional Neuroimaging  lab at the Center for Neuroscience and Cognitive Sciences (CNCS) @UNITN in Rovereto, Italy, one of the research nodes set up by IIT.

CNCS is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to the investigation of the brain and its functional organization.

The lab  is equipped with a state-of–the-art 7 Tesla MRI scanner for preclinical research and is devoted to the use of functional MRI methods to map large-scale neural systems of the mouse brain.

The overall aim of this project is to apply fMRI readouts to spatially resolve the neural substrate modulated by pro-social compound and peptides and to relate this to the endogenous function of target neuromodulatory  systems using opto/chemogenetic approaches.

The ideal candidate has a PhD in Neuroscience, Biology, Pharmacology or a related discipline.

Previous experience in rodent behavioural readouts, immunohistochemical techniques as well as basic knowledge of computer programming are highly recommended.

We value scientists who can interact effectively with an interdisciplinary team, have a high level of independence and take accountability for their project. Successful applicants should also be willing to learn a variety of complementary techniques through secondments at other IIT research nodes.
