We are seeking to appoint an experienced Research Associate to work within the neurobiology research area under the supervision of Dr. Mick Craig (INP) and Professor Jonathan Cavanagh (III).

Our projects are focused on studies that examine the effects of inflammation (predominantly chemokines and cytokines) and leukocyte recruitment to the brain on long-range connectivity within neural circuits underlying memory, decision-making and motivation.

The postholder will help drive forward research at the interface between immune biology (chemokine biology, in particular), neurophysiology and behaviour. As such, the post requires a strong understanding of the interface between immunobiology and neurobiology.

Applicants must have a solid background in neuroscience and will also be required to have extensive and detailed experience in electrophysiology and optogenetics.
