PostDoc Position in Neuroscience (Brain cell type-specific mitochondrial physiology)
- Canada Research Chair in Mitochondrial Signaling and Physiopathology, University of Moncton, Canada
The Canada Research Chair in Mitochondrial Signaling and Physiopathology is seeking a Post-doctoral researcher. The selected candidate will study the role of intra-mitochondrial signaling on brain cell-type specific mitochondrial physiology as well as cognitive performance. The candidate will use different CRE mice strains and stereotaxic injections of viral constructs to target intra-mitochondrial signaling in specific cell types and brain regions in vivo. The impact on brain metabolism, and behavior will be examined. The project will be mainly performed the laboratory of Dr Hebert-Chatelain (Canada Research Chair in Mitochondrial Signaling and Physiopathology, University of Moncton, Canada). The candidate should be aware that the position may require traveling to our partner laboratory (Dr Bellocchio, NeuroCentre Magendie, Bordeaux, France). The ideal candidate will be competent in performing critical review of data, experimental troubleshooting, data analysis, and presentation of research data and project updates.The selected candidate will also provide guidance to other members of the team. This position is for a minimum of 2 years and is funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) and other grants.
The Canada Research Chair in Mitochondrial Signaling and Physiopathology is located in the Centre de Médecine de Précision du Nouveau-Brunswick, the largest research center in Medical Biology in Atlantic Canada. This new facility includes more than 15 principal investigators from the University of Moncton, the University Hospital Center Georges L. Dumont and the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute. Moncton is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities that offers a wide range of cultural, recreational and entertainment options. The first bilingual city in Canada is located a few steps away from the warm and sandy beaches of the Northumberland Detroit and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Fundy Bay.
