A postdoctoral position is available to participate in ongoing studies of
the brain structures implicated in the genesis of locomotor activity, in
Drosophila. The project concern the characterization of the neurons,
located in the pars intercerebralis, which are responsible for the sexual
dimorphism in locomotor activity. The project will combine neuroanatomy,
genetic and molecular analysis as well as behavioral analysis. Reference:
