Postdoctoral positions are available in Phil Haydon’s laboratory to study the glial regulation of sleep as well as interactions between cholinergic pathways and D-serine. The laboratory is based in the Department of Neuroscience at Tufts University School of Medicine which houses state-of-the-art imaging, behavioral and molecular genetic cores. The postdoctoral positions will use a variety of approaches including electrophysiology, EEG/EMG, molecular genetics and optogenetics to study the interactions between astrocytes and circuits that modulate sleep and cognition. Successful candidates must be able to work independently, as well as in a team. A Ph.D. in Neuroscience, or related area is required.
Applicants should submit curriculum vitae and bibliography, a statement of previous research achievements and interests to Phil Haydon. E-mail: Philip.email@example.com
Our laboratory is part of the Dept. of Neuroscience at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. A strong focus of our Department is glial-synapse interactions with emphasis on translational models of disorders of the brain. It maintains an open, interactive, and intellectually stimulating learning environment. Department members interact informally on a daily basis and come to...gether more formally at weekly seminars, student/postdoc neuroscience presentations, the annual symposium, and the annual neuroscience retreat. All of the laboratories benefit tremendously from our NINDS-funded Center for Neuroscience Research (CNR) core facilities which provide access to equipment and expertise for electrophysiology, imaging, gene expression, and animal behavior analyses.
