The Centro Interdisciplinario de Neurociencia de Valparaíso (CINV, http://cinv.uv.cl/en/), at the Universidad de Valparaiso, Valparaiso, Chile, invites young postdoctoral researchers to apply for a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the CINV. The purpose of this program is to support highly motivated and outstanding PhD graduates students from any country who wish to initiate or continue a scientific project in one of CINV’s labs, which are:
Structure and Function of Molecular Sensors: http://cinv.uv.cl/en/structure-and-function-of-molecular-sensors/
Cellular Signaling: http://cinv.uv.cl/en/cellular-signaling/
Genetics and Development of the Nervous System: http://cinv.uv.cl/en/genetic-and-developmental-neuroscience/
Systems and Circuits Neuroscience: http://cinv.uv.cl/en/sensory-system/
Molecular Simulation and Computational Biology: http://cinv.uv.cl/en/molecular-simulation-and-computational-biology/
The successful candidate will receive a one-year fellowship, and a second year funding will be subject to a competitive renewal. CINV fellows are expected to apply during their first year for external funding [e.g. FONDECYT http://www.conicyt.cl/fondecyt] to support their following years at CINV.
The monthly salary will be commensurable with FONDECYT postdoctoral salary fellowships. A formal agreement, between CINV and the awarded candidate, will establish the legal conditions of this scholarship.
