Postdoctoral Fellow: Neuronal Circuits of Sleep and Wakefulness
University of Michigan
August 30, 2018
Ann Arbor, Michigan
Full Time - Entry Level
Academic / Research
The Eban-Rothschild Lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoc to join our team. The position is fully funded. The main focus of the lab is to uncover novel neuronal circuits regulating sleep and wakefulness. To accomplish this, we utilize a wide array of innovative experimental techniques in freely behaving mice, including in vivo calcium imaging, fiber-photometry, EEG/EMG recordings, optogenetics, chemogenetics, and circuit tracing.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or related field. Candidates with research expertise in stereotaxic surgery, neural circuit techniques (optogenetics/chemogenetics, calcium imaging) and/or data analysis of neuronal activity are particularly encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should email a brief description of research experience and interests, current CV and contact information of three referees.
