Qualification Details

To be qualified to take employment as postdoc, you must have been awarded a doctoral degree or have a foreign degree that is deemed to be equivalent to a doctoral degree. This degree must have been awarded at the latest by the point at which LiU makes its decision to employ you.

It is considered advantageous if your doctoral degree is no older than three years at application deadline for this job. If there are special reasons for having an older doctoral degree – such as taking statutory leave – then these may be taken into consideration.

We are seeking applicants who have a doctoral degree in a relevant field. We are also looking for those who have knowledge of patch clamp ex vivo electrophysiology of amygdala preparations. This position requires experience from optogenetic circuit mapping and optogenetic self-stimulation in rats.

You should be self-motivated, able to take initiatives, and stay focused on projects until you reach results. You take responsibility for structuring your tasks. We expect co-workers to have high integrity, carry out their research to the highest ethical standards, and contribute to our highly collaborative and supportive work environment.

Responsibilities/Job Description

We study the role amygdala microcircuits in control of appetitive behaviors, such as self-administration of alcohol or optogenetic self-stimulation, under conditions of negative consequences. The successful applicant will carry out electrophysiological and optogenetic studies of reward-related behaviors and compulsivity in in vivo and ex vivo models.

As postdoc, you will principally carry out research. A certain amount of teaching may be part of your duties, up to a maximum of 20% of working hours.
