PhD student to study the molecular and cellular basis of synaptic specificity in the neocortex (published Aug 12, 2014)

We are recruiting a PhD student to study the molecular and cellular basis of synaptic specificity in the neocortex. Our laboratory has recently demonstrated that the connectivity of neurons within developing cortical circuits can be specifically reprogrammed (De La Rossa et al., Nature Neuroscience, 2013) and that input-dependent processes determine the neuronal identity and circuit complexity (Golding et al., Neuron, 2014; Pouchelon et al., Nature 2014). The project of the successful applicant will consist in investigating gene-circuit interactions during assembly of forebrain neurons.

Candidates should be able to work both independently and within a dynamic multidisciplinary research team focused on understanding neurodevelopmental circuit formation using ex vivo and in vitro approaches. The Department of Basic Neurosciences is located within the Faculty of Medicine, at the heart of Geneva, in a competitive and stimulating academic environment.

Please send your CV and a letter of motivation to Prof. Denis Jabaudon: denis.jabaudon@unige.ch

Post-doctoral position in Lausanne, Switzerland (published 8/2013)

Post-doctoral position in Lausanne, Switzerland

LREN neuroimaging lab - Department of Clinical Neurosciences
and
Department of Psychiatry - Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The cluster of excellence NCCR SYNAPSY funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation aims to discover the synaptic mechanisms from the molecular to network and integrative aspects underlying mental and cognitive diseases, such as depression, addiction, anxiety disorders or development disorders.
We are recruiting a talented postdoctoral researcher with a background in neuroimaging. The ideal candidate is ambitious and highly motivated for pursuing a career in science, holds a PhD in neuroimaging, computational neuroscience, biomedical engineering, cognitive neuroscience, or equivalent, has a strong background and interest in neuroscience, MRI analysis and statistics, and an excellent publication record. Candidates with a strong interest in and experience with methods for integrating multimodal imaging measures, including quantitative structural MRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and functional MRI, are in particular encouraged to apply.
This posts are based in the neuroimaging laboratory LREN (www.unil.ch/lren) in Lausanne providing state-of-the-art facilities with a fully research-dedicated 3 Tesla MRI Siemens Prisma machine at the edge of MR technology, well-established infrastructure for neurophysiological testing (electro-encephalography and transcranial magnetic stimulation), computer pool for hands-on student teaching and 200m2 of laboratory space. We have access to research dedicated 7T human MRI scanner.
This projects offer a stimulating, young and international environment making use of expertise and infrastructure of LREN (Prof. B. Draganski) and the Psychiatry Department - Lausanne University Hospital – CHUV (Prof. Ph. Conus, Prof. M. Preisig and Dr P. Marquet).
Please address questions or send Curriculum Vita, letter of application with research interests, and three references to Bogdan Draganski (bogdan.draganski@chuv.ch). Applications will be considered until positions are filled. Starting date is negotiable, though it can begin as early as October 2013.
 

Postdoctoral positions Neuroimaging and genetics (published 8/2013)

The European 16p11.2 consortium is a large translational project covering clinical, genomics and neuroimaging aspects aiming at the characterization of the 16p11.2 rearrangements.

We are recruiting a talented postdoctoral researcher with a background in neuroimaging. The ideal candidate is ambitious and highly motivated for pursuing a career in science, holds a PhD in neuroimaging, computational neuroscience, biomedical engineering, cognitive neuroscience, or equivalent, has a strong background and interest in neuroscience, MRI analysis and statistics, and an excellent publication record. Candidates with a strong interest in and experience with methods for integrating multimodal imaging measures, including structural MRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and functional MRI, are in particular encouraged to apply. Experience with statistical genetics is an advantage.

This project offers a stimulating, young and international environment making use of expertise and infrastructure of several labs:

  • LREN (directed by Prof. B. Draganski)
