To carry out electrophysiology experiments in slices and in vivo in mice, as part of a scientific project on memory mechanisms, more specifically, on the control by the thalamus of the maturation of engram cells in the retrosplenial cortex.
The candidate will be in charge of a project supported by the French National Research Agency. He/she will carry out experiments involving the tracing of synaptic connections and electrophysiology in slices and in vivo, combined with optogenetics and cellular imaging, in the context of questions linked to the acquisition and consolidation of episodic memory.
PhD in Neuroscience. Knowledge of synaptic circuit analysis. Experience of electrophysiology in slice or in vivo (or 2P in vivo imaging) would be a strong asset to the application. The candidate should be comfortable with electrophysiological data analysis software and/or programming languages such as Python.
Contexte de travail
Created on 1 January 2011, the Institut interdisciplinaire de neurosciences (IINS) is a joint research unit attached to the CNRS and the University of Bordeaux. With 170 staff 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 part of Bordeaux Neurocampus, IINS is one of the major players in the neuroscience community in Aquitaine.
The member of staff will work independently on his/her project, in close collaboration with Mario Carta and Christophe Mulle, the heads of the "Synapses and neural circuits in behaviour" team. They will also work with Matthieu Wolff and Bruno Bontempi's teams.
