Postdoctoral Position: Neuromodulation, Spain

Postdoc in Spain

Postdoctoral Position: Neuromodulation: A new postdoctoral position is available to work in the field of nanoparticle-mediated neuromodulation in animal models of Parkinson’s disease, with a 2-year contract.

Postdoctoral Position (R2, R3) in “Nanoparticle-mediated Neuromodulation in Animal Models of Parkinson’s Disease”

Designation: Postdoctoral Researcher (R2, R3)

Research Area: Nanoparticle-mediated neuromodulation in animal models of Parkinson’s disease

Location: Spain


  • PhD in Neuroscience or related field (Biotechnology, Biomedicine, etc).
  • Experience in one or more of the following:
    • Animal models of Parkinson’s disease
    • Stereotactic surgery in mice
    • Electrophysiology
    • Fiber photometry / 2-photon microscopy (in vivo calcium imaging)
  • Certificate for Animal Experimentation (“Función C” in Spain or EU-equivalent).
  • Fluency in written and spoken English.

Job Description:
The selected candidate will join a collaborative multidisciplinary project, as part of a Spanish consortium aiming to achieve neurostimulation in deep areas of the brain through non-invasive approaches. The candidate would participate, specifically, in a sub-project led by Dr. Federico N. Soria (Gliomatrix), aimed to mimic dopaminergic modulation of striatal neurons with plasmonic and magnetic nanoparticles. The project employs animal models of Parkinson’s disease (PD), in vivo electrophysiology and calcium imaging, motor behavior and histological analysis.

How to Apply:
Candidates should submit a motivation letter, CV, and 2 letters of recommendation to Dr. Federico Soria, indicating “Postdoc 2024 PD” in the subject.

Last Date for Apply: 22 Apr, 2024
