Poste de Maitre de conférence sénior en neurobiologie du comportement à l’université de Leicester (Royaume Uni)

Chair/Reader in the Neurobiology of Behaviour

Department of Biology

College of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology

Ref: MBP00320

At Leicester we’re going places. Ranked in the top 15 universities in Britain our aim is to climb further. A commitment to high quality fused with an inclusive academic culture is our hallmark and led the Times Higher Education to describe us as « elite without being elitist ».

You will be an outstanding researcher with an international reputation in the causal mechanisms underlying animal behaviour, able to strengthen and expand our multi-disciplinary Neuroscience & Behaviour research theme (weblink). Current strengths include a wide range of behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, as well as auditory and motor physiology, all underpinned by fundamental studies of synaptic function and plasticity.

We are seeking candidates who have an interest in taking a « whole organism » approach to the neurobiological and/or genetic basis of behaviour, to integrate with existing expertise in proximate (electrophysiological, cellular and molecular) and ultimate (evolutionary, ecological) approaches to the study of behaviour.

Links will be encouraged with other College-wide research themes particularly Genome Science (weblink)

A Lectureship will also be offered in association with this post.

Closing date for applications 17th April 2011
