Postdoctoral position in cellular and circuit neuroscience

We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our laboratory “Neural circuits for spatial navigation and memory” at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. The laboratory will open its doors in autumn 2016. The laboratory is interested in how neuronal activity at the level of synapses, neurons, and neuronal circuits drives behaviour. To address this question, we focus on the hippocampus, a brain region that is critical for learning and memory. We combine novel physiological, optical, behavioural, and computational approaches to directly read out and manipulate the activity of individual neurons and neural circuits during behaviour. The Institut Pasteur in Paris offers an international, dynamic and stimulating scientific environment with more than 1500 researchers working in 11 Departments favouring multiple collaborations, and access to cutting-edge technological platforms. Candidates should have…
