Postdoctoral positon in Neuroscience/Biophysics

One postdoctoral positon is available in the Biophysics Biophotonics lab at the European Laboratory for Non Linear Spectroscopy in Florence (http://bio.lens.unifi.it/) for motivated candidates interested in studying the molecular basis of neurodegenerative diseases in living cells with advanced microscopy techniques.
Potential projects may involve:
(1) Studying the surface trafficking of membrane proteins involved in Alzheimer’s disease by means of single molecule tracking in hippocampal neurons
(2) Development and imaging of a Zebrafish model of Alzheimer’s disease

The ideal candidate will have a background in biophysics, molecular biology, cell biology or neuroscience and a strong interest in applying advanced imaging tools.

Candidates should send an application to Dr. Martino Calamai (calamai@lens.unifi.it) including:
- Current and future research interests;
- Curriculum vitae;
- Brief summary of previous research experience;
- Name and contact information for at least a reference.

The position is for 18 months
Start date: Early 2019
