Role of cerebral reserves in neurodegenerative diseases”

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research project will test the hypothesis that environmental experiences are able to modify structure and functions of cerebral circuits by enhancing brain resilience. Therefore, applicants should be able to use behavioral, neuroanatomical and neurochemical approaches in rodent models. Moreover, they should be capable of interpreting the results obtained by these approaches in the context of neurocognitive models of cerebral reserves. The position requires researchers with competence and experience in psychobiological research, capable to develop and apply experimental plans in complete autonomy and to oversee research training of graduate students in psychobiology and cognitive neuroscience. Therefore, we are seeking applicants with a PhD in psychobiology, behavioral neurosciences or related fields.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
