Postdoctoral position in super-resolution imaging and diffusion modeling in brain extracellular space
The Laboratory of Neuronal Excitability is looking for a postdoctoral researcher for a Spain/US collaborative project. The aim is to model diffusion in the brain extracellular space (ECS), based on super-resolved microscopy images of neuropil in live mouse brain slices. The ultimate goal is to learn how ECS structure dynamically shape signaling and metabolite clearance pathways in the brain. The selected candidate will be trained in super-resolution STED/SUSHI microscopy (Tonnesen et al, Cell 2018) to effectively map out ECS structure and dynamics, and be involved in building a computational model of diffusion based on these images.
