    Postdoctoral position in Drosophila neuroscience for analysis of neuronal circuits and behavioral genetics

    Application deadline 21 October 2016. The lab of Anne von Philipsborn at DANDRITE, the Danish Research Institute of Translational Neuroscience, Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine at Aarhus University, Denmark (http://dandrite.au.dk/), is looking for a highly motivated and skilled postdoc. We are interested in understanding how the nervous system generates and controls behaviour - at the level of genes and molecules, cells and neuronal circuits. Using Drosophila courtship and acoustic signaling as a model system, we study how small circuits of genetically defined neurons integrate sensory information, select actions and generate motor patterns. Our methodology includes various Drosophila behavioral assays to test the effect of manipulation of neuronal activity with genetic tools, confocal microscopy, 3D image analysis, calcium imaging of neuronal activity and optogenetics.
