2-year Postdoc Position at the Center for Proteins in Memory (PROMEMO)
The new Center for Proteins in Memory (PROMEMO) at Aarhus University invites applications for a postdoc position in molecular neuroscience. The position is funded by The Danish National Research Foundation and is initially for two years. The starting date is 1 January 2018.
With the aim of gaining insight into molecular mechanisms of memory, in particular of ionic channels and their regulation, the project will involve electrophysiological experiments and fluorescence based measurements, including two-electrode voltage clamping and cut-open voltage-clamp fluorometry with an unnatural amino acid.
The candidate is expected to have a Ph.D. in molecular biology or similar and to have experience with general molecular biology techniques as well as with electrophysiology. The candidate should be able to manage projects independently, be innovative, take responsibility for supervising students, and be a good team player.
The place of work will be the Department of Molecular Biology and will be part of a multidisciplinary Center of Excellence addressing memory from a variety of angles. The adress is Gustav Wieds Vej 10, 8000 Aarhus C and the area of employment is Aarhus University with related departments.
