Although no positions are currently open at the undergraduate level, undergrad students are welcome to visit and inquire about the activity of the laboratory.
1) in vivo recording: a project based on in-vivo recording in rodent neocortex, aimed to understanding the interplay of brain cholinergic and adrenergic systems in auditory attention.
Preference will be given to candidates with background in either:
Use and construction of electrical devices
- Basic electronics
- Computer Sciences
- Use and construction of simple mechanical devices
No previous biological or surgical knowledge is required. The position can develop into a doctoral position. In this event, the candidate will be trained to basic chemistry and to the use biological preparations necessary to propose and carry on his/her doctoral project. Training will start as early as in the spring semester 2009.
2) patch-clamp recording:
We are looking for doctoral candidates interested in the neuromodulation of auditory cortex synaptic transmission. The student will use several electrophysiological techniques including patch-clamp experiments on a thin-slice rat brain preparation. No previous experience but a serious commitment to the laboratory activity is required. The position can develop into a doctoral position.
All candidates need to be motivated team-workers committed to intellectual excellence and independence.
Please send a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at (972) 883-4311.
