Position Type
Full Time

A postdoctoral position is available in a NIH-funded research laboratory to study the neuroscientific basis of sleep-wake states, anesthetic-induced unconsciousness, and sleep-anesthesia interactions. The applicant should have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in behavioral neuroscience/sleep neurobiology and a proven track record of productivity as evident through published research articles.

The research project requires electrophysiological sleep-wake recordings, intracranial microdialysis in freely moving rats, HPLC quantification of neurotransmitter levels, and immunohistochemical (and/or fluorescence) staining of frozen brain sections. Some training can be provided but expertise in some of these techniques is required. In addition, expertise in cell/molecular biology and/or chronic in vivo single/multi-unit neuronal recordings in freely moving rodents is highly desirable.

The successful applicant is expected to have excellent oral and written communication skills, and a strong enthusiasm for learning and developing new experimental approaches. The trainee will have the opportunity to work in a highly collaborative and collegial environment, and will be supported by active mentoring and any additional training required for the successful completion of the project and career advancement.
