Two post-doctoral positions on the role of GABAergic neurons on memory Aarhus University, Denmark (Dr Marco Capogna)

We are seeking to recruit two independent post-doctoral fellows expert in in vitro or in vivo electrophysiology and optogenetics in order to study the behavioral role of “non-classical GABAergic neuron types” in the amygdala and hippocampus of rodents. Electrophysiological or imaging approaches will be combined with behavioral assessment of memory function to understand the role of specific GABAergic neuron types in memory storage, consolidation and retrieval.

Deadline: 09.08.2018
