Postdocs in neuroscience- Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research
Posted: June 11, 2014
Expires: August 10, 2014
Science jobs from Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR):
The NIBR Postdoctoral Program provides excellent training in research and exposure to science in a pharmaceutical setting. Postdoctoral scholars at NIBR have a unique opportunity to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research and are expected to publish their results in leading journals. The postdoctoral term is up to 4 years.
Positions in Neuroscience, Bioengineering, Imaging, Neural Computation & Behavior.
We are currently seeking candidates to use genetics to dissect neurophysiological behavior in zebrafish, taking advantage of new tools to map neural circuits in vivo relevant to learning, anxiety and social interaction. Over the long term, our goal is to develop systems relevant for psychiatric drug discovery. We use behavioral assays to identify new modulators of these circuits. In addition, we will employ in vivo neural network mapping tools, such as optogenetics and high spatiotemporal resolution multiphoton imaging, to analyze functional connectivity and synaptic transmission deficiency of mutants with relevant phenotypes. The postdoctoral scholars will have the opportunity to study neural circuitry defects in a fast-growing battery of zebrafish knockout and transgenic models.
Qualifications: PhD in Neuroscience or related field. Expertise in neural circuits, bioengineering, neural computation, and/or animal behaviors Strong background in programming languages, such as LabVIEW or MATLAB, or excellent skills in multiphoton imaging Candidates must be able to work independently and with interdisciplinary teams
