The Wierenga lab within the Donders Centre for Neuroscience (DCN), at the Faculty of Science of Radboud University (Nijmegen, Netherlands) is looking for a postdoctoral reasearcher to perform two-photon Fluorescence Lifetime Microscopy (FLIM) in brain slices and to study how inhibitory cells and their synapses are affected by neuromodulation.
The position can be filled either as a 3-year position for a postdoctoral researcher, or as a 4-year position for a PhD student.
- You are a highly motivated, enthusiastic, critical, creative and team-oriented young scientist with a particular interest in neurophysiology.
- You take initiative and you are eager to learn.
- You can work independently, but you also enjoy interacting within a group.
- You have a PhD degree in life sciences, biology, biomedical sciences or a related discipline, and an interest in intracellular signalling and synapse formation.
- You have working experience in advanced microscopy in living brain tissue and good programming skills (in Matlab or a similar environment).
- Working experience in electrophysiology is an advantage.
- You are fluent in English (written and spoken) and have good communication skills.
- You demonstrate continuous integrity and positivity and motivate others to do the same.
- (If you are a highly motivated student with the experience and skills listed above, please contact me to discuss the possibilities of a PhD).
