A post doctoral position on protracted effects of early exposure to sweets in a rat model.
CNRS UMR 5287
end of february
A postdoctoral position is available in Bordeaux (France) to work on a project funded by the “Fonds Français Nutrition-Santé” and entitled “A neurobehavioural model of food pleasure”. The main objective of the project is to understand how adolescent exposure to sweet food affects adult behavioural and neuronal functions (see Vendruscolo, Gueye et al., plosone, 2010 and Vendruscolo et al., Neuropharmacology, 2010). The work involves testing rats in behavioural paradigms and imaging of dopaminergic markers.
The candidate must have a PhD in Neuroscience with an advanced expertise in behavioural analysis of cognitive and motivational functions in rodents (preferentially rats). A solid background in imaging techniques (immunohistochemistry, qPCR) in small animals is also required. This is a one year appointment renewable another year.
