RESEARCH ASSISTANTS @ Campus Biotech Geneva (09/2022)

The Functional Brain Mapping Laboratory (FBMlab, https://neurocenter-unige.ch/research-groups/christoph-michel/) directed by Prof. Christoph Michel, Department of Basic Neurosciences at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva, is opening 2 research assistants (RA) positions as a part of a project on Improvement of Autobiographical Memory in Mild Cognitive Impairment, directed by Dr. Lucie Bréchet in collaboration with Prof. Giovanni Frisoni.
Summary of the project
We will evaluate brain activity during autobiographical memory (ABM) ecologically valid tasks using high-density electroencephalography (hdEEG) in cognitively-unimpaired younger and older adults and age-matched individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). We will then employ personalized, multi-channel Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS) to modulate brain oscillations and evaluate the impact on ABM.
Description
The RAs will recruit healthy participants, prepare the personalized memory tasks, apply tACS and collect behavioral, MRI, and hdEEG data. In addition, the RAs will be in charge of the REDCap database.
Candidate requirements
The ideal candidate must:

  • have a MSc degree in neurosciences, psychology, or equivalent
  • have an acquired knowledge of basic EEG collection and analysis (at least pre-processing, knowledge of Cartool software ideal)
  • be motivated, know how to work independently and in a team
  • have a first-level knowledge of programming (Matlab, R, Python)
  • have a professional level of French and English
  • have a previous solid experience with a healthy and clinical population
  • have to work in synergy with personnel at the Memory Center, HUG
    Period
    We offer a competitive UNIGE/HUG salary. The positions are available immediately.
    Contact
    If interested, please contact Dr. Lucie Bréchet (lucie.brechet@unige.ch) and send a motivation letter, CV, diploma, and 1-2 references.
Post-doctoral position in Sensorimotor Neuroscience at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland (03/22)

THE LAB
The group of Mario Prsa at the University of Fribourg (prsalab.org) is looking for post-doctoral candidates to conduct research on neural mechanisms of forelimb sensorimotor adaptation and/or proprioceptive sensory processing.
Our laboratory is part of the Department of Neuroscience and Movement Science within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Fribourg comprised of a vibrant scientific community including more than 20 multi-disciplinary research groups (www3.unifr.ch/med/de/research/researchgroups/).
RESEARCH
Movements are at the center of all our behavior and accurate movements allow us to properly interact with the world. Proprioception and sensorimotor adaptation are two physiological processes crucial for maintaining movement accuracy. The applicant will use state-of-the art behavioral, optogenetic, two-photon microscopy and neuroanatomical tracing techniques to dissect the underlying neuronal circuits in the mouse brain.
YOUR PROFILE

  • PhD degree in Systems Neuroscience (or related discipline).
  • Highly motivated, excellent analytical, experimental and writing skills.
  • Expertise in rodent behavior, optogenetics, in-vivo imaging and/or neuroanatomical tracing is highly desirable.
  • Proficiency in data analysis, hardware programming and experimental control with Matlab is preferred.
    THE POSITION
    We offer a fully funded post-doctoral position (1 year initial contract) planned to start in September 2022 (or earlier). Interested applicants should send a letter of motivation, complete CV and a list of referees to mario.prsa@unifr.ch.
