Institute of Veterinary PhysiologyPostdoc
A Postdoc position is available at the Institute of Veterinary Physiology, Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Zurich. Title: "Interaction of GLP-1 and Amylin agonists"
The massive rise in obesity rates is mainly due to changes in lifestyle, in particular increased caloric intake. Promising emerging therapies rely on the combination of gut hormones and their agonists. To pursue important questions regarding pharmacotherapy using GLP-1 and amylin agonists, we offer an attractive position in a collaborative project with another university in Europe and a US based university. The experimental work of this project will combine in vivo approaches with analyses at the cellular and subcellular level to resolve the mechanisms mediating the actions of GLP-1 and amylin agonists.
This project will use a large array of behavioral and state-of-the-art technology such as single cell sequencing, fiber photometry, chemogenetics and brain imaging ex vivo (including brain clearing iDisco) and in vivo imaging studies in animal models.
We offer an inspiring research environment in an enthusiastic team.
The duration of this position is planned for 3 years, with the possibility for an extension.
