Postdoctoral scholarship: Vesicle and nanoscale subvesicular electrochemical measurements

Nyhet: 2018-05-08

The scholarship holder will work on a project to appply amperometric methods at ultrasmall electrodes to quantify and measure dynamics of transmitters from cells, to construct nanometer pores at the tips of nano electrodes with a layer of metal inside the extremely small pore (100 to 200 nm in diameter) at the nanotip. To test if vesicle dense core analysis can be accomplished by creating a pore size that is intermediate between the vesicle and dense core diameters. The goal will be to measure the content of vesicles in a cell model of neurotransmission to understand the actions of drugs on these parameters. The holder will then carry out measurements at nerve cells in an organism (Drosophila melanogaster) to test if these parameters also affect fully functional nerve cells.

Dnr: E 2018/312

Scholarship period: The scholarship covers a period of 24 months.

Preliminary start date: 2018-08-15
