Jobs and academic oportunities

Postdoctoral positions:

The Millennium Nucleus for Biology of Neuropsychiatric Disorders nuMIND offers two postdoctoral positions to conduct research on the role of neuromodulatory systems in synaptic function, brain activity dynamics, and behavior.

A 2-year post-doctoral fellowship is available starting March 2016 to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuromodulation of network physiology and plasticity by combining molecular biology, electrophysiology and genetic tools on mouse brain slices and in vivo animal models. This is a team collaboration project in which the candidate will work in an interdisciplinary environment and use the newly acquired and state-of-the-art in vivo knockdown strategies, optogenetic and multielectrode array that allows simultaneous recording from maximum 120 electrodes with an integrated data acquisition system. The research group is located in the neighboring coastal cities of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar, at Universidad de Valparaiso and Universidad Andres Bello, respectively, bringing together high-profile research teams with complementary areas of expertise and with a common interest in understanding how our work brain work in health and disease.
