Karolinska Institutet, Institutionen för neurovetenskap, Ibanez

The Department of Neuroscience includes several research groups working on different aspects of nervous system function, both under normal conditions and in various disease states. Research projects include a broad range of studies on the molecular and cellular levels, networks of neurons, and the organization of the nervous system as a whole. The Department has a flat organization with 40 researchers, of which 24 are full professors and 65 PhD students.

Teaching represents a fundamental activity at the Department, which participates in several undergraduate courses and postgraduate education programs. Each year approximately 15 students receive their PhD from our Department and many of our graduates have gone onto distinguished careers in the academic or private sector.

The research group of professor Carlos Ibanez is now seeking a talented and enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher with expertise in cellular electrophysiology to advance investigations on the functions and mechanisms of neurotrophic signaling networks in the adult nervous system. The research entails functional assessment of neuronal circuits in the brains of mutant mice lacking different neurotrophic factor receptors in specific subpopulations of neurons.

Entry requirements
A person is eligible for a position as Postdoctoral Researcher if he or she has obtained a PhD no more than seven years before the last date of employment as postdoc. The term can be extended under special circumstances.

Candidates are required to have a strong and documented expertise in electrophysiological methods as applied to studies of the rodent central nervous system, such as electrophysiological recordings from brain slices, is a requirement for consideration. Experience on calcium imaging would be an advantage.

The successful candidate is expected to be sufficiently independent to set up electrophysiological methods at our laboratory, including supervision of purchase, installation and maintenance of the necessary equipment.
