A postdoctoral position in neural integration is available as a collaboration between the laboratories of Dr Lucy Palmer at The Florey Institute, Melbourne, Australia (www.palmerlaboratory.com) and Dr Tomas Ryan at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland (ryan-lab.org). The project will focus on understanding the cellular basis of neural integration with particular emphasis on how dendritic activity is altered during memory formation. Whole-cell patch clamp recordings in vitro and two-photon calcium imaging in vivo will be used to investigate the integrative rules and connectivity of labelled neurons. We are looking for a highly motivated and talented candidate with experience in patch-clamp electrophysiology to be based 90% in Melbourne and 10% in Dublin. Further, the ideal candidate should have a strong neuroscience or quantitative science background with a proven publication record.
An indicative salary package in the range of $78,667 to $84,446 commensurate on experience (in addition to superannuation and generous salary packaging options). Applications, including cover letter and curriculum vitae should be made no later than 5pm, Monday, 20th October 2017.
