A post-doctoral position is available starting December 2021. Our research projects are centered on the relationship between neuronal activity, glial cells, and the regulation of brain metabolism. We are actively looking into the impact of these interactions in pathologies such as Alzheimer's disease. The successful candidate will work in an interdisciplinary environment. Experimental approaches will make extensive use of electrophysiology (patch-clamp) and dynamic cellular imaging techniques (wide-field, one- and two-photon confocal fluorescence microscopy) applied to acute brain slice studies. He/she will also routinely use molecular biology approaches, stereotactic viral vector injections, and behavioral studies. Projects will include the development of imaging and optical tools, including optogenetics.
