NeuroPSI is looking for a very high level candidate, able to work in a team, with a strong competence in neurosciences and particularly in neurogenetics, and a record of publications whose quality allows us to consider recruiting for a research or teacher-researcher position within the next 2-3 years.
The work is carried out in the Cognitive Neurosciences and Networks Department of the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neurosciences. The main scientific objective of NeuroPSI is to understand the nature and logic of the neural circuits that control the behavior of animals when they interact with their environment. Various animal models are used and experimental and theoretical approaches are combined to understand how different types of neural architectures can perform brain tasks. The projects aim to determine how cellular interactions lead to neural populations, how these populations assemble into functional circuits and how these circuits operate to integrate different sensory modalities, generate behaviors and control cognitive functions. The studies also use comparative and genetic approaches to determine how the forces of evolution shape the brain and create individual brain diversity in natural populations.
