Dr Giuseppe D’Agostino’s team uses a multidisciplinary approach covering the study of genes, cells and behaviour related to appetite and body weight regulation. Their research includes the molecular phenotyping of specific neuronal types, circuit mapping and optogenetic stimulation, linked with the measurement of physiological and behavioural outputs.

Specifically, we aim to complete a multidisciplinary project that focuses on the interaction between the neuronal circuits that regulate appetite and the immune system. The successful candidate will employ genetic technologies to manipulate and record the activity of discrete neuronal populations in vivo, as well as in vivo models of inflammation. The successful candidate will also collaborate as a team with other members of the lab on other relevant projects involving molecular phenotyping of neurons, circuit mapping and physiological/behavioural recording.

The position is available from January the 1st, 2022 and for a fixed term of 18 months.
