A Postdoctoral Fellowship position is available to undertake brain slice electrophysiological and calcium imaging studies of hypothalamic CRH neurons from mice.
Experiments will involve patch-clamp electrophysiological recordings and GCaMP6 imaging. Studies aim to elucidate the sex differences in CRH neuron ion channels and excitability patterns. This work is supported by a grant awarded to Dr. Karl Iremonger by the Royal Society Marsden Fund. More information on research from the Iremonger lab can be found here: http://iremongerlab.otago.ac.nz
The ideal candidate will have substantial expertise in brain slice electrophysiology. Prior experience with calcium imaging and optical manipulations of neural function would be an advantage. Work will be undertaken within the University of Otago Centre for Neuroendocrinology http://www.neuroendocrinology.otago.ac.nz.
The position is fixed-term for three years and available from March 2018.
Specific enquiries should be directed to Dr. Karl Iremonger, Centre for Neuroendocrinology and Department of Physiology, contact details are below.
Applications close on January 12th, 2018.
