The Department is happy to host prospective and future fellowship grant holders and offers a competitive start-up package for early career researchers seeking to carry out their research in Oxford.
Grade 7: £33,309-£40,927 per annum
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Liliana Minichiello at the Department of Pharmacology, the University of Oxford, to study the fundamental mechanisms regulating the integration of newly born neurons into neural circuits during critical periods of brain plasticity underlying cognition, learning and memory.
Funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), this project builds on the Minichiello group’s recent findings, which show that interfering with specific neural circuits during brain development results in brain disorders that affect later adult life.
Therefore, you will use precise genetics with cutting-edge sequencing techniques, such as RNAseq and ATACseq and integrated computational analysis of single-cell transcriptome and epigenome to identify new potential genetic factors regulating time-sensitive periods during brain circuits development. These are fundamental and necessary steps towards the design of innovative pharmacological treatments relevant to neurodevelopmental disorders.
The post is available on a fixed-term basis, for three years, funded by the Medical Research Council.
The closing date for applications is 12noon on Monday 15 November 2021.
