Missions

We are looking to hire a motivated postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Alexandre Charlet to work on funded projects around cellular circuits underlying the neuropeptidergic regulation of emotions.

Activities

Our research interests are focused on the oxytocin modulation of emotions, among which pain (Eliava et al., Neuron, 2016) and anxiety (Hasan et al., Neuron, 2019), as well as social interactions (Tang et al., Nature Neuroscience, 2020). We recently bear a great interest on the involvement of astrocytes in such function (Wahis et al., biorXive, 2020). In addition, we are now interested in the rising analgesic potential of relaxin, another central neuropeptide. To tackle these important questions, we use a combination of electrophysiology, calcium imaging and viral vector based manipulation of neuronal and astroglial specific populations.

Skills

Candidates should be independent, motivated and very enthusiastic, with strong expertise in either in vivo extracellular electrophysiology, in vivo or ex vivo calcium imaging. Complementary skills including Python programming, ex vivo patch-clamp or molecular biology are welcome. Candidate should hold a PhD in Neuroscience or relative disciplines.

Work Context

Our laboratory belongs to the Institute for Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences, in Strasbourg, France. It is part of a dynamic trinational network including laboratories from France, Germany and Switzerland. This exceptional situation, at the center of Europe, provides an environment of choice for young scientist through technical as well as theoretical training facilities
