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.
Assistant e doctorant e à 80-100% @ UNIGE (02/22)

Afin de renforcer son équipe dynamique, le Centre Universitaire Romand d’Implants Cochléaires (CURIC) de l’Université de Genève est à la recherche d’un-e :
Assistant e doctorant e à 80 100%
au sein du groupe de Neuroprothèses sensorielles pour la restitution de l’audition et l’équilibre
http://www.unige.ch/medecine/neucli/fr/groupes-de-recherche/268guyot/
Le groupe de Neuroprothèses sensorielles pour la restitution de l’audition et l’équilibre bénéficie d’une expertise de longue date dans le domaine des neuroprothèses sensorielles, dès leur développement jusqu’à leur application clinique. Le principal intérêt de recherche de cette équipe multidisciplinaire concerne la réhabilitation fonctionnelle des patients souffrant de déficits sensoriels de l’oreille interne, alliant la recherche fondamentale aux développements techniques nécessaires au développement de nouveaux outils diagnostiques et thérapeutiques.

Le-la candidat-e sélectionné-e intègrera l’équipe du projet « implant vestibulaire». Il-elle contribuera à l’évaluation clinique des patients porteurs d’un implant vestibulaire ainsi qu’au développement de nouveaux protocoles cliniques et diagnostiques nécessaires à optimiser l’implant vestibulaire dans le but de réussir sa translation en application clinique. Il-elle contribuera à l’analyse des données, à la présentation des résultats et à la préparation de manuscrits.

Titre et compétences exigés

Les candidats-es sont titulaires d’un master en neurosciences, ingénierie biomédicale ou une autre discipline associée. Ils-elles sont au bénéfice d’une expérience dans la recherche scientifique (niveau master), d’un excellent niveau de français et d’anglais oral et écrit (niveau C1 minimum), de très bonnes compétences en programmation, analyse de signaux, statistique, communication et organisation. Le/la candidat-e doit montrer un intérêt à collaborer avec des praticien-nes et des professionnel-les du domaine multidisciplinaire de la médecine vestibulaire, l’audiologie et les implants cochléaires (médecins, ingénieurs, physiothérapeutes, logopédistes, etc.) et à travailler avec des sujets sains, des patients et des données cliniques. Le poste de doctorant-e comporte l’intégration à l’Ecole Doctorale Lémanique en Neurosciences de la Faculté de médecine de l’Université de Genève et la production d’une thèse doctorale.

Entrée en fonction
Dès que possible

Contact
Si vous correspondez à la description ci-dessus, nous serions très heureux de recevoir votre dossier de candidature (Lettre de motivation, CV, certificats, diplômes) qui devra être déposé exclusivement en ligne.
