Open postdoctoral position on ERC SociOlfa project. Motivated candidates can send their application and CV to: email@example.com
Team TAKAHASHI : We are hiring! 2020-11-15
We currently have open positions for two postdocs and one technical assistant.
The postdoc positions belong to the recently funded project “Cellular and circuit basis of attentional modulation of tactile sensory processing” (by ATIP-Avenir2020). In this project, we will apply in vivo imaging methods to investigate cortical sensory processing at the subcellular resolution (i.e., synapses, dendrites) in head-fixed mice performing a tactile task.
The successful candidate holding a PhD will show proven experience in neurophysiology (e.g., two-photon imaging, electrophysiology, mouse behavior) in addition to a strong scientific motivation. Programing skills in matlab or python are required.
For the Technical assistant position, the suitable candidate will have skills in one or more of: immunohistochemistry, epi-fluorescent/confocal microscopy, stereotactic surgery, handing and training mice, programming (matlab, python).
Team ELEGHEERT : 2 ERC-funded postdoctoral research positions 2020-11-16
2 ERC-funded postdoctoral research positions are available immediately to study the structure and therapeutic targeting of neuronal cell-surface receptors and protein complexes.
The projects will involve mammalian protein production, protein chemistry, biophysical interaction analysis, X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM and discovery of Nanobodies (Nbs).
The candidate(s) must hold a PhD degree and have less than two years of post-doctoral experience at the start of the contract. The candidate(s) should have a solid background in molecular biology, biochemistry and/or structural biology. Experience with (i) mammalian expression systems (HEK293 cell lines), (ii) biophysical analysis methods (surface plasmon resonance, isothermal titration calorimetry, microscale thermophoresis, etc.), and (iii) X-ray crystallography or cryo-EM, is preferred. The candidate should be highly motivated, a team player, and have a can-do problem-solving attitude.
The project will be carried out under the supervision and mentorship of Dr. Jonathan Elegheert at the IINS in Bordeaux, France, which is recognised for its expertise in molecular and cellular neuroscience, and which is further embedded within the Bordeaux Neurocampus, a vibrant community of more than 700 neuroscientists.

Team PERRAIS : Post-doctoral position in imaging exo-endocytosis of synaptic vesicles 2020-11-15
The project: the main goal of our lab is to address the mechanisms regulating synapse function through membrane trafficking events in normal brain physiology or in the course of disease. We use the most advanced imaging techniques of exo- and endocytosis together with refined purification of synaptic elements (synaptosomes).
This project, funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), is an International Collaborative Research Project with the lab of Volker Haucke (FMP Berlin, Germany).
The objective is to decipher the functional nano-architecture of the synaptic terminal and to define an active zone for synaptic vesicle endocytosis.
Your profile: PhD in biophysics and imaging, cellular neuroscience or cell biology of membrane trafficking with a good publication record and a propensity to work in a collaborative environment.
We offer: a challenging and impactful project; a diverse, collaborative and international research environment; state-of-the-art infrastructure, including unique technical expertise in imaging exo-endocytosis and synapse purification; access to high-level platforms (Bordeaux Imaging Center, proteomics, FACSility) and training opportunities.
The post-doctoral salary will be funded for an initial period of 30 months.
Please send CV, motivation letter and two references to firstname.lastname@example.org
Team CHOQUET : PhD position to study synapse nanoscale disorganization in neurodevelopmental disorder models 2020-11-23
The ETN “Synaptic Dysfunction in Neuropsychiatric Disorders” (Syn2Psy) is recruiting an early stage researcher (ESR) to integrate a research project with Eric Hosy and Daniel Choquet @ IINS aimed at understanding the molecular, synaptic, network and behaviour basis of neuropsychiatric disorders.
