A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Prager-Khoutorsky, McGill University, Montreal, Canada. We are interested in understanding the integrative mechanisms by which the brain regulates basic body functions, such as hunger, thirst, and hormonal levels. We study how neurons, glia, and blood vessels interact to orchestrate the communication between the brain and the periphery and how disruption of these mechanisms leads to cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. The project focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the circadian regulation of the blood-brain barrier. Highly-motivated individuals with a strong publication record are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send a CV, a brief statement of interests (one paragraph) and names & contact information of 3 referees to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Desired skills and experience:
Experience in electrophysiology, imaging and rodent models is an advantage
