Postdoc in Drosophila NeurosciencePosted by: College of Health and Life Sciences (CHLS), HBKU, Doha
Posted date: Nov-28-2018
Location: Doha, Qatar
We are seeking an outstanding, inquisitive scientist interested in understandings on how neuromodulators affect neural dynamics influencing an animal’s behavior, using Drosophila as a model organism. We use a range of approaches, including neural circuit-based studies, Optogenetics based neural switches (ChR and GtACR), molecular-genetic perturbations, genomics, Transgenic animal preparation, and behavioral neuroscience to address fundamental questions about signaling between neurons. We are particularly interested in candidates who are enthusiastic about using multidisciplinary approaches in their work. Successful applicants will be involved in defining their own research direction.

Specific duties include LAB maintenance, Drosophila genetics, assays of behaviors, Drosophila stocks maintenance, standard molecular biology experiments and general laboratory maintenance as needed. Training and teaching masters and Ph.D. students.
Experience with programming (at least one out of Matlab/Python/R), molecular biology, Drosophila genetics, confocal microscopy, managing students, or an engineer with a strong background or interest in Neuroscience is desirable. Must be able to communicate clearly and work collaboratively.
