An enthusiastic and highly motivated post-doctoral scientist is required for a BBSRC funded study of the neural circuit underlying chemotaxis in Drosophila larvae. The post holders will join the group of Dr Camilla Larsen in the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology, King’s College London and the project will make extensive use of in vivo imaging and larval chemotaxis behavior analysis. The post holders will be involved in identifying novel circuit components of the chemotaxis pathway and investigate how circuit components interact in the network. The post holders will benefit from state-of-the-art imaging facilities, technical support and the intellectual environment and friendly and interactive culture of the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology.
