Postdoctoral fellow - Neuronal circuits/Systems Neuroscience
A postdoctoral position focused on dissecting the neuronal circuits underlying Dementia including Alzheimer’s Disease is available in the laboratory of Dr. Smitha Karunakaran at the Centre for Brain Research.
The lab is broadly interested in understanding the neural circuit mechanisms that are perturbed early on in Alzheimer’s Disease (mouse models) that trigger or orchestrate degeneration progressively. The local and long range neuronal circuits involving specific cell types will be studied. We utilise a combination of quantitative behavioural assays with viral tracings and manipulation of genetically defined cell types using pharmacogenetics to causally assess the contribution of individual circuit elements to a particular aspect of behavioural output.
Candidates should have a recent PhD in neuroscience or related field.  Candidates with a strong background in stereotaxic injections/surgery, immunohistochemistry, and/or animal behavioural procedures, data analysis, and statistics skills are preferred. Training can/will be provided. 
The position is available immediately.
Applicants should send a CV, brief statement of research interests, and contact information for 2 references to Smitha Karunakaran at smitha@iisc.ac.in. 
Information about the lab and a list of publications can be found at https://www.cbr.iisc.ac.in/people-faculty-smitha.php. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
Project Assistant - Neural Circuits & Behavior

A project assistant positionis available in the laboratory of Dr. Smitha Karunakaran at the Centre for Brain Research, IISc, Bangalore (https://www.cbr.iisc.ac.in/people-faculty-smitha.php).
The candidate will assist with the ongoing projects in the lab. They will particularly focus on the hippocampal-entorhinal system in rodent models of Alzheimer’s disease.
Interested candidates should have a Masters in Neuroscience or related field.  Prior experience with rodent based behavioural tests, immunohistochemistry and stereology are preferred. Training can/will be provided. 
Interested candidates should send a CV, statement of research interests, and contact information of two references to smitha@iisc.ac.in
