 Postdoctoral Research Position
Postdoctoral Research Position on Behavioral Neuroscience with a focus on telemetric and microdialysis approaches - Laboratory of Behavioral Genetics, Brain Mind Institute, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. A postdoctoral position is immediately available for an excellent candidate with strong background in telemetric (for indexes of sympathetic nervous system activity) and/or microdialysis approaches in neuroscience. Some knowledge on the field of behavioral neuroscience is desirable, but not compulsive. The successful applicant will investigate the neurobiological mechanisms underlying vulnerability to stress-induced cognitive and psychopathological alterations in rodents. The project aims to understand how stress (particularly early life experiences) leads to increased anxiety, depression-like behaviors and aggression. The research will be conducted in rats, at the Laboratory of Behavioral Genetics in new state-of-the-art research facilities. The Brain Mind Institute (EPFL; is dedicated to exploring the emergence of higher brain function across multiple levels ranging from gene expression to cognition and emotional processing. Interested applicants must have a PhD in Neuroscience or related discipline, with a track record of publications in peer-reviewed journals. More information about our laboratory projects can be obtained on the web ( The position is immediately available and can be extended for up to 4 years. 
Interested candidates should send by email a pdf document including: CV, a research statement -indicating scientific interests and relevant experience- and the names of 3 reference persons to: Prof. Carmen Sandi, Laboratory of Behavioral Genetics, 
Brain Mind Institute, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Bat. AAB. Station 19, CH-1015 Lausanne, Switzerland.
