Your research will focus on understanding the role of the prefrontal cortex in the development of compulsive alcohol-seeking behaviors. We are going to combine a variety of state-of-the-art techniques, including chemogenetics, optogenetics, fiber photometry, and Single-Cell Calcium Imaging. The appointment will initially be for 1 year. After a satisfactory evaluation of the initial appointment, the contract will be extended for a total duration of 3 years. This is a competitive salaried position and will be open until filled. The present project is a collaborative work with Dr. Sebastian Carnicella’s research team located in the Grenoble Institute of Neurosciences (https://bit.ly/3eM714n).
