Deadline: 13 June 2016
Open to: candidate with a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in (Physiology/Neuroscience)
Fellowship: NOK 483,700 – 560,700 (EUR 51,881- 60,140) per year, depending on qualifications and seniority
Position as postdoctoral research fellow available at the Department of Biosciences and in the research group of Associate Professor Marianne Fyhn at Center for Integrated Neuroplasticity (CINPLA).
The fellowship period is three years. Within the framework of the position duties may be assigned. Starting date no later than 1 October 2016. No one can be appointed for more than one specified period at the same institution.
The aim of the present project is to identify cell-specific and molecular contributions to learning and memory processing. The effects of targeted genetic perturbations on neural circuit function will be directly assessed using in vivo two-photon laser scanning microscopy (2PLSM) in combination with genetically encoded fluorophores. The candidate will establish new behavioral paradigms in combination in vivo 2PSLM, and closely collaborate with investigators in computational neuroscience to develop computational models of the underlying neural circuitry.
The candidate must have a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in (Physiology/Neuroscience). The preferred candidate has strong experience from in vivo investigations of brain function in animal models.
Position code 1352, Pay Grade 57 – 65: NOK 483,700 – 560,700 (EUR 51,881- 60,140) per year, depending on qualifications and seniority).
