4 Year Postdoctoral Position on a Research Project to Investigate the Neuron CFircuitry of the Human Cerebral Cortex
Aarhus University - Dandrite
The applicant will lead projects on the human cerebral cortex in vitro. He/she will use surgically-resected cortical tissue that is surplus to diagnostic requirement. After removal, the tissue is quickly transferred from the surgery to the lab and maintained vital in vitro for several hours for electrophysiological, anatomical and pharmacological investigation. Parallel experiments using this approach will be also performed by the collaborative group of Professor Peter Somogyi at the Department of Pharmacology of the University of Oxford.
- Previous experience in electrophysiology in vitro, possibly including paired-multiple intracellular recordings, immunohistochemistry and anatomical reconstruction of the recorded neurons;
- The successful applicant is expected to be able to manage the project, work in synergy with collaborators in Aarhus and in Oxford, ensure high productivity and high quality standards, conduct firm, kind and thorough supervision, and be a good team player.
