Study opportunities

Sadegh Nabavi's lab

Lab background:

Synaptic plasticity and memory formation

Available projects:

“Mapping the neural circuit for an innate fear behavior”. The major aim of this project is to delve into the brain’s architecture of mice in order to identify the differences and/or the common points between the brain’s circuitries for an innate fear versus a learned fear.


Electrophysiology, animal behavior, immunohistochemistry, imaging, optogenetics.

The successful applicant is:

A motivated and hard-working master student with some experience in working with animals, immunohistochemistry or molecular biology.

Or a graduated student who wants to be hired as a lab-technician or a researcher-assistant before starting a PhD.
