We are recruiting a new post-doctoral research associate to investigate the function of chromatin remodelling factors in learning and memory. The PDRA will be based in the laboratories of Professors M. Albert Basson and Peter Giese. The aim of the project is to use a combination of mouse genetic approaches, sterotactic viral injections into the hippocampus, learning and memory and behavioural tests and molecular and epigenetic approaches to determine the functions of these factors in the adult brain and to determine if restoring function in the adult brain can rescue specific learning deficits.
The post holder will have a keen interest in chromatin remodelling mechanisms and learning and memory research. This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we build capacity in the exciting new field of epigenetics in learning and memory, which promises to provide fundamental insights into how memories are stored in the brain, the basis of intellectual disabilities and translational possibilities of treating conditions associated with learning deficits by targeting the epigenome. Suitable applicants will have an outstanding academic record and PhD in a relevant field (Genetics, Epigenetics, and/or Neuroscience), ideally with some experience in working with mice, including basic surgical experience and/or relevant molecular approaches.
This post will be offered on an 12 months (renewal annually for up to 2 years).
This is a Full time post – 100 % full time equivalent.
