A full-time temporary position as a Postdoctoral fellow is available for a period of three (3) years at the University of Bergen, Department of Biomedicine.
The position is part of the project “Beyond the synapse: The role of extrasynaptic receptors in a retinal microcircuit”, funded by the Research Council of Norway (NFR).
The overall aim of the project is to investigate the dynamics, mechanisms and functional consequences of extrasynaptic glutamatergic neurotransmission within a well-defined retinal microcircuit. This project is motivated by basic questions about the structure and function of the nervous system at the cellular and molecular level.
The main objectives for the position:
- To participate in the collection and analysis of data
- To support and work with the principal investigator in carrying out the research project
- To actively contribute to the academic life in the research group
The research will be done at the Department of Biomedicine, University of Bergen, Norway, under the supervision of Professors Margaret Veruki and Espen Hartveit. Our research team in Bergen has excellent facilities for advanced cellular electrophysiology, imaging (including 2-photon imaging, confocal and STED imaging, high-speed optical voltage recording) and morphological reconstruction of single neurons.
For further information about the project, please contact Professor Margaret Veruki (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org ).
