POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

University of Paris-Sud (XI), Orsay (Paris)

Functional brain imaging, in-vivo, in Drosophila

  A postdoctoral position is available to 
participate in ongoing studies of neuronal 
circuits related to neurophysiological functions. 
The project concerns the anatomo-functional 
mapping, in-vivo, of the adult Drosophila brain, 
and more particularly in relation with locomotor 
activity, using a recently developed genetically 
encoded calcium-sensitive bioluminescent 
reporter, GFP-aequorin. The project will combine 
whole brain imaging, neuroanatomy, genetic and 
molecular analysis as well as behavioral 
analysis. Candidates should have a PhD degree 
with a strong background in genetic, molecular 
and behavioral neuroscience (preferably in 
Drosophila). Applications should comprise a 
curriculum vitae, a brief statement of previous 
research experience, and the names and address of 
3 referees. The Postdoctoral Position, funded by 
the French National Agency for Research (ANR) is 
available for two years, starting early 2006.
