The successful candidate will perform electrophysiological experiments based on MEA recordings of rodent brain slices. Excellent manual skills, as well as precision, rigor, troubleshooting capabilities and the ability to work in team are essential qualities for that position. The contract is a long-term position based in Aix-en-Provence.
This position requires knowledge in neurobiology, neurophysiology and pharmacology. Experience in the electrophysiology field would be an advantage. The candidate should hold a BTS (Advanced Technician Certificate) or IUT (University Institutes of Technology) degree or a 3 years university degree in the field of biology. Experience in handling rodents is desirable, as well as an intermediate level in English.

A profound understanding of neurophysiology and neuropharmacology is expected. Experience handling rodents is desirable. Ideally, the candidate already has hands-on experience working with slices, assay development and compound testing. The successful candidate has the ability to quickly screen and comprehend scientific papers. The candidate will have to organize experiments and project activities to ensure that results are delivered on time, requiring a high level of autonomy. Additionally, strong troubleshooting skills, both on the technical and scientific level are essential. Being fluent in written and spoken English is crucial for this position. Speaking French would be an advantage, but is not essential. Qualified candidates must have the authorization to be employed in France.
