挪威奥斯陆大学: 分子医学博士后职位招聘

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Molecular MedicineJob description

Applications are invited for a three year position as Postdoctoral Fellow in neuroscience and epilepsy to be based at the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences (IMB), University of Oslo.

More about the position

The position is linked to Professor Farrukh A. Chaudhry’s group (https:// bit.ly/2oXLyL8) investigating amino acid transporters and metabolizing enzymes to elucidate their pathofunctional roles in neuronal signaling, neuronal development and in neuropathology (See e.g. Qureshi et al., Cereb Cortex, 2019; Moen et al., Brain, 2016; Hamdani et al., Glia, 2012; Nissen-Meyer et al., J Neurosci, 2011). We use a multidisciplinary approach (including genetically modified mice, two-electrode voltage-clamp and patch- clamp electrophysiology, ratiometric analyses, biochemical investigations, high-resolution imaging (transmission electron microscopy, Confocal laser scanning microscopy) and behavioral testing) to investigate the molecular mechanisms involved in their function and regulation, and translate these findings to clinics.

The current project involves functional characterization of novel proteins and their interacting partners with focus on neurotransmitter synthesis, synaptic plasticity and pathology. It involves generation of genetically modified mice and characterization of their phenotype. The candidate is also expected to identify and characterize novel disease-causing genes and pathogenesis mechanisms involved in epilepsy and other brain diseases.
