Summary of Role


The successful candidate will work on the ERANET-NEURON funded project AUTONOMIC, coordinated by Pr S. RHEIMS, which investigates in Dravet syndrome the interplay between the genetically-based neurodevelopmental disorder and effects of recurrent seizures on alteration of vegetative functions and risk of sudden death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) (


Using a mouse model of Dravet syndrome, the AUTONOMIC project relies on the combination of in vivo EEG-EKG-respiratory recordings with functional imaging, immunohistochemical and transcripts analyses targeting the serotonin pathway. The project will include a specific focus on sleep regulation, with the objective to investigate the relation between epilepsy-related autonomic dysfunctions and alterations of arousal regulation in the pathophysiology of SUDEP.

The postdoctoral researcher will be involved in all stages of designing, conducting and analyzing in vivo EEG experiments. She/he will work in closed collaboration with another post-doc fellow, already active in the project, with high expertise in respiratory recordings.

The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to prepare the results for high-quality academic publications, to present at national and international academic conferences, and to engage in public activities. Furthermore that Research Fellow will take part in the supervision of students.
