L’éprouvette (UNIL) is looking for lab instructors to organise scientific workshops (science communication).

L’éprouvette, the science and society laboratory of the UNIL, is looking for students (from the third year) and assistants in biology or medicine to animate scientific workshops for schools and families. These workshops are held from Monday to Saturday, upon registration. The working hours depend on the number of registrations. The duration of the different activities varies from 2 to 4 hours on average. These workshops can take place at L’éprouvette (Amphipole) and sometimes outside as in schools or festivals. The services are paid by the hour.
Please send your CV and a few lines about your interest and motivation to Mathilde.ythier@unil.ch.

12 Junior Professor (tenure track) positions available on several topics at the INSERM (accross France)

The INSERM has just launched a call for the recruitment of 12 Junior professors.

The Junior Professorships (CPJ) are intended for researchers with strong potential to manage and lead research teams, as well as to participate in international projects.
These tenure-track positions are based on fixed-term contracts (from 3 to 6 years), and should lead to permanent INSERM positions (as Research Directors).

One position is open at the “Institut du thorax” in Nantes University, under the title : “Risk prediction models for cardiovascular diseases”
We aim at attracting an emerging leader in computational biology willing to develop and apply novel statistical/numerical approaches based on multi-scale data.

More information on the call and on the open positions is available at: https://sp2013.inserm.fr/sites/eva/appels-a-projets/cpj/cpj_2022/Pages/default.aspx

A post-doctoral fellow position is available to study neuromodulation and behavior in Drosophila at the NIMH, Bethesda (USA)

Postdoc Position to Study the Neuromodulatory Organization of Brain Circuit Activity and Behavior

Benjamin White’s laboratory at the National Institute of Mental Health (Bethesda, Maryland, USA) would welcome a postdoctoral fellow interested in pursuing questions related to the neuromodulatory control of behavioral state.  We seek to broadly understand how neuromodulators act in concert to organize neural circuit activity and produce behavior. Additionally, we are interested in how neuromodulatory mechanisms of behavioral control change over development and evolution. Working in Drosophila, we use a variety of approaches to tackle these questions including brain-wide neuronal imaging by light-sheet microscopy, whole-body muscle activity imaging, computational modeling, single-cell RNA sequencing, and state-of-the-art circuit-mapping. Several circuit-mapping approaches used in Drosophila were developed in the lab including Split Gal, Trojan exons, and SpaRCLIN.

Our research focuses on the developmentally malleable and highly evolvable behaviors that govern insect molting and recent projects have been directed toward identifying neuromodulatory neurons that regulate behavioral transitions (Diao et al., 2017, eLife), comprehensively characterizing behavior at single-muscle resolution (Elliott et al., 2021, eLife), and deconstructing mechanisms underlying behavioral decision-making (Diao, 2020, BioRxiv). Opportunities exist to pursue research in these and other areas. Creative project ideas are not only welcome, but encouraged!  

Interested candidates should send a CV and a short summary of their research experience and future goals to benjaminwhite@mail.nih.gov
