Postdoctoral position on refining experimental rodent procedures
Zurich Integrative Rodent Physiology (ZIRP) is an interdisciplinary rodent core facility situated at the Institute of Physiology at the University of Zurich. ZIRP provides infrastructure and know-how for the advanced in vivo analysis of rodent physiology and offers expert advice as well as teaching and training for researchers working with laboratory rodents. This includes refining experimental conditions wherever possible.
The candidate will be responsible for establishing a complex setup combining whole body plethysmography, radiotelemetry (EEG, ECG and blood pressure) and automated behavioral tracking technologies, will organize the different parts of the study and be responsible for data acquisition and analyses.
We are seeking a highly motivated, team-oriented candidate with a strong interest in rodent experimental work and technically demanding cutting-edge experimental technologies.
The successful applicant will hold a PhD/doctoral degree in the field of veterinary or biomedicine or a related subject together with good knowledge of the above-mentioned techniques. Proficiency in English (and German), strong skills in organizing animal experimental work, applied data analysis as well as a good knowledge base in rodent behavior, welfare and care are required. Previous experience with the above mentioned techniques and/or surgery in rodents would be an advantage. Due to the collaborations within the project, the candidate is willing to travel.
