The successful candidate will combine in vivo two-photon/widescreen imaging and opto-/chemo-genetics with behavioral assays to find mechanistic explanations for how attention modulates tactile processing in the mouse somatosensory cortex. We are particularly interested in neural processing at the level of synapses and dendrites.
Study of the cellular mechanisms of attentional modulation of tactile processing
Created on January 1, 2011, the Interdisciplinary Institute of Neuroscience (IINS) is a joint research unit attached to the CNRS and the University of Bordeaux. With 160 people in 14 teams, IINS combines multidisciplinary skills to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in brain activity. The Institute develops innovative methods in imaging, chemistry, physiology and computer science. As a component of Bordeaux Neurocampus, IINS is one of the major actors of the neuroscience community in Aquitaine.Eligibility criteria
Candidates must have a PhD and a background in neuroscience. Experience in calcium imaging or electrophysiology is an asset. Programming skills in Matlab or Python are required.Web site for additional job details
