Descripción de la oferta
We are looking for a highly motivated a creative postdoctoral researcher to lead a project on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) resilience and sleep. The selected candidate will join the Functional Epi-Genomics group at the Instituto de Neurociencias (IN) of Alicante (Spain) and work in close collaboration with other groups as part of an international action funded by the Pasqual Maragall Foundation.
The project aims to characterize and causally determine the molecular underpinnings of sleep-modulation of AD resilience using a combination of mouse models and human samples, with state-of-the-art electrophysiology and behavioral techniques, and single-cell epi-genetic profiling and editing tools.
Applicants should have a PhD (awarded or soon to be awarded) in Neuroscience, Molecular Biology or any other related field. A strong background in mouse handling-behavior is totally required. Previous experience in automated behavioral systems (e.g., touchscreen, Intellicage), electrophysiology, microscopy imaging, neuro-epigenetics and/or bioinformatics will be a plus but not essential. Preference will be given to applicants with a good track record in AD and/or sleep. The position is intended for a maximum of 4 years starting as early as January 2024.
