Open Ended Contract, subject to Fixed Term Funding. Funding is available for up to 3 years
At Leicester we’re going places. Ranked in the top 20 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”.
In this position you will develop and carry out research on the neural basis of appetite and feeding regulation as part of a recently funded BBSRC project grant entitled “Role of nucleus accumbens in encoding nutritional value”. You will use in vivo recording techniques (fast-scan cyclic voltammetry and/or electrophysiology) to record dopamine release and neural activity while freely-moving animals learn about the nutritional value of food stimuli.
You will have a PhD in Neuroscience or related subject, and have experience in electrophysiology, voltammetry, or behaviour.
Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr James McCutcheon on firstname.lastname@example.org
