Project title: Development of new behavioural tests for depression-like behaviour in mice
Although tools to assess depressive phenotypes in animals exist, these do not support research in the neurobiological mechanisms of early changes in depression. Thus, we aim to develop new behavioural tests for depressive features in mice. This project involves the application of a battery of behavioural tests, biochemical and neuroanatomical analyses, together with neuropharmachological modulations.
Interested candidates should have a BS or ongoing MS studies in the fields of Life Sciences, Biology, Psychology, Medicine or related disciplines. They should send by email their CV and a motivation letter which includes any special skills or experience which they may bring to the project addressed to Dr. Paula Fernandez-Vizarra ( firstname.lastname@example.org).
