Postdoc Position at the Translational Neurobiology Laboratory
We invite applications for the position at The Translational Neurobiology Laboratory, Department of Neuroscience, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic Postdoc for studies of the neurovascular unit and cerebral blood flow regulation for a two-year period to commence 15 April 2022.
We seek an excellent Postdoc with a high potential for original research focusing on the brain neurovascular unit in health and disease. Our most recent work is on calcium signaling in astrocytes and neurons, imaging of organelles, brain pericytes, the blood-brain barrier, aging and stroke. Our strength is in vivo physiology in mice using basic electrophysiological and laser-optic techniques, transgenic mice, and two-photon microscopy. The applicant is expected to work with two-photon microscopy in mouse cerebral cortex in relation to the regulation of blood flow in awake behaving mice in normal conditions and after a concussion.
