We are currently looking for exceptional candidates with a strong background in neuroscience, particularly with expertise in molecular and behavioral neuroscience.

Essential qualifications for these positions include: a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Biology, or a closely related field; a strong background working with mice; experience with advanced techniques in neuroscience (such as optogenetics/chemogenetics, stereotactic rodent surgery, electrophysiology, microscopy, histology, and/or molecular profiling).

The term of appointment is one year, with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and funding.
