A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Armen Saghatelyan (https://www.saghatelyanlab.com/research) at the CERVO Brain Research Center (https://cervo.ulaval.ca/en), Quebec City, Canada, to study neuronal development in the adult mammalian forebrain. Our lab is interested in the mechanisms controlling integration and maintenance of adult-born neurons in the olfactory bulb.
We use multidisciplinary approaches including micro-endoscopic imaging in freely behaving mice, in vivo two-photon functional (GCamP6) and structural (cell maturation and spine dynamics) imaging, electrophysiology, primary cell culture, stereotaxic injection of viral vectors, immunohistochemistry, molecular biology tools, as well as different behavioral tests (for selected publications Malvaut et al., Current Biology, 2017; Breton-Provencher et al., Nat. Comm., 2016; Breton-Provencher et al., J. Neurosci., 2014; David et al., J. Neurosci., 2013).
We are looking for highly motivated applicants with expertise in two-photon imaging and/or electrophysiology (patch-clamp). The laboratory is located in the Neurophotonic Center in Quebec City (http://neurophotonics.ca/), a vibrant research environment bridging together neuroscience and photonics.
Interested applicants should send CV, statement of research interest and the names and contact information of 2-3 referees to Dr. Armen Saghatelyan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The CERVO Research Center is one of Canada's leading neuroscience and mental health centers. It brings together some sixty researchers in charge of research teams with more than 400 people, offering multidisciplinary expertise. The job is available in the laboratory of Dr. Armen Saghatelyan interested in the mechanisms controlling migration, integration and maintenance of adult-born neurons in the adult olfactory bulb.
