Postdoctoral Scholar in the laboratory of Jeanne Paz
Postdoctoral fellowships in the Paz Laboratory focus on synaptic basis of behavior in health and disease and in particular on epileptic disorders and the associated cognitive deficits. Rodent models are used to study potential disease-causing factors and pathways at the molecular, cellular, network and behavioral level. Experimental models are also used to develop and evaluate novel therapeutic strategies. Their relevance is assessed through comparative studies of humans and human tissue samples in collaboration with clinical programs. Main approaches: dissection of neural circuits and glial-neuronal interactions using ontogenetic, pharmacology, electrophysiology in vitro and in vivo; closed-loop optogenetic control of brain states in freely behaving rodents; circuit mapping; chronic imaging in freely behaving rodents.
Postdoctoral candidates should possess a PhD, MD, or both and have a strong background in neuroscience and electrophysiology, as well as an outstanding record of academic achievements and research productivity. Please send curriculum vitae, description of accomplishments and research interests, and the names of three references to Dr Jeanne Paz (email@example.com)
