Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Neuroendocrinology/Neuroscience) University of Exeter

Application deadline: 6 February 2018

The University of Exeter is recruiting a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to support the work of Dr Jamie Walker. This Medical Research Council (MRC)-funded post is available from 01 April 2018 (or a mutually agreeable date thereafter) for a duration of up to 36 months.

Working within a multidisciplinary team of mathematicians and neuroendocrinologists, the successful applicant will employ experimental in vivo techniques in rodents to investigate the dynamic activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, and how this changes under different conditions of stress.

The successful applicant will visit collaborating labs (Bristol and Edinburgh in the UK; Montpellier in France) to learn and share knowledge and experimental techniques, as required, and will also attend key national and international conferences.

This new full-time post is available from April 2018 on a fixed term basis until 31 March 2021 within the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences.
