-The candidate will contribute to a project on investigating neural circuit mechanisms underlying diverse computations like decision and learning and their modulation by the context using a multidisciplinary approach that combines neural manipulation during behavior, electron microscopy (EM) reconstruction of neuronal connectivity at a synaptic level and recording of neuronal activity in the Drosophila larva with Calcium-imaging.
- Immunohistochemistry in Drosophila nervous system
- Drosophila genetics
- Behavioral experiments (automated tracking and analysis)
- confocal and 2-photon microscopy (Calcium-imaging)
- electron microscopy reconstruction of synaptic connections.
- General knowledge in Drosophila neurobiology
- Experience in Calcium-imaging using bi-photon microscopy
- Basics in programming (Matlab, Python)
- team work
- organization skills
We are seeking candidatures of highly motivated individuals, preferably with background in neuroscience. PhD in neuroscience, biology or related fields is required. Experience in Calcium- imaging and/or connectomics will be appreciated.
The candidate will work in the team Neural Circuits and Behavior headed by Tihana Jovanic in the Molecules & Circuits department at the newly founded Neuroscience Paris Saclay Institute (Neuro-PSI) in Saclay (20 km south of Paris) dedicated to fundamental research in Neuroscience. NeuroPSI has state-of the art core facilities and the Saclay campus provides a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment mixing university and engineering schools, with excellent laboratories in fundamental and applied science. The project will give opportunities for both national and international collaborations
