Full Time

Post-doctoral position for 2 years, starting in January 2021 (renewable), funded by the French NIH (INSERM) 35-42 k€ + benefits / year, depending on the experience of the applicant. We are using state of the art circuit dissection in mice to pin point the functional role of neural populations of the insular cortex in emotional valence and anxiety, and to identify cellular and synaptic dysfunctions of those populations in stress-induced models of psychiatric pathologies. We are looking for a PhD mastering programming and electrophysiology (in vivo and/or ex vivo).

The lab is part of the Neurocentre Magendie, one of the three neighbor institutes of the Bordeaux Neurocampus encompassing more than 50 labs dedicated to Neuroscience research, providing an exceptionally rich environment.

The applicants should email a CV, including contact information for three references, and a cover letter describing experience, goals and reasons for the interest in this position (
