We at ELSC, invite you to be part of our flourishing research environment and community. We focus, in particular, on the theoretical and experimental study of the dynamics and computational capabilities of neural networks. Our goal is to develop new insights into the mechanisms underlying normal brain function and brain dysfunction.
The two new PhD projects will mainly focus on the role of lipid metabolism and nutritional influences on neural stem cell metabolism.
The laboratory of Pr. Nathalie Ginovart at the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Geneva is seeking candidates for a PhD position. Our research focuses on the brain mechanisms leading to drug addiction and compulsive behaviours. We are interested in understanding how innate behavioural traits related to impulsivity, novelty seeking and risky-decision making contribute to vulnerability to drug abuse. We are furthermore interested in investigating the neural circuit and molecular basis that control these behaviours. Our research is interdisciplinary and integrates behavioral testing, in vivo neuroimaging, and optogenetics in rodent models of addiction.
We are looking for a highly motivated Ph.D. student with a Master degree in Neurosciences, Medicine, Biology or related field. Good communication skills and a high commitment and curiosity about neuroscientific questions are essentials. The PhD position is offered for an initial 3 years. The successful candidate will join the Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School program, which offer a pluri-disciplinary education in all fields of neuroscience and is organized by the Universities of Lausanne and Geneva and the EPFL (http://www.lemanic-neuroscience.ch/phd/).
The starting date is 01.04.2017 but may be adjusted by mutual agreement.
Applications, including a complete CV and a letter of motivation with a brief statement of any research experience related to the field or a relevant field of study should be sent electronically to email@example.com.
