Postdoctoral position available

We have an opening for a postdoctoral associate. See our ad on the neurojobs website: https://neurojobs.sfn.org/jobs/11514596/postdoctoral-position-in-memory-sequence-replay-and-sleep

The Diba Lab at the University of Michigan Medical School is currently recruiting a postdoctoral candidate for a project recently funded by two NIMH (R01 and R21) grants. The project involves a collaboration with Dr. Ted Abel’s lab at the University of Iowa to investigate the Molecular, Cellular and Circuit Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Hippocampal Function. The successful candidate will perform and analyze large-scale neuronal recordings from freely-behaving, sleeping and sleep-deprived animals, along with chemogenetic manipulations, immunohistochemistry and biochemical assays. Data analysis of oscillatory and sequential neuronal firing patterns, using MATLAB, python, and other tools, is critical for this research and the prospective candidate should demonstrate quantitative and programming skills. The salary will be based on the National Research Service Award (NRSA) payscale.

Our lab is housed in the Department of Anesthesiology and the Center for Consciousness Science at Michigan Medicine. We are affiliated with the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Neuroscience Graduate Program. Collectively these programs and the University of Michigan at large provide a highly exciting and stimulating scientific environment for computational and systems neuroscience. The city of Ann Arbor is also consistently ranked among the top places in the U.S. to live (with ready access to cultural events, sports, parks and natural beauty.

Applicants should contact Kamran Diba: kdiba@umich.edu with a detailed C.V. and a description of research background, skills, and interests.
