Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the
group of Dr Shuzo Sakata in Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and
Biomedical Sciences at University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK. This
position is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

Mission of our research team is to understand state-dependent
information processing in the brain at the level of neural circuits.
This project particularly concerns REM sleep. Taking multidisciplinary
approaches, we are aiming to elucidate the function of sub-second
brain waves and underlying neural ensemble dynamics during REM sleep
in rodents. As a large data set has been already collected, this
project will focus primarily on data analysis and developing a
computational model.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in the field of neuroscience,
engineering, statistics, computer science, physics or related fields.
Strong quantitative skills for neurophysiological data (e.g., LFP,
neuronal ensemble, video image) and/or computational modelling would
be advantageous.

Applicants should send (1) a CV and (2) a summary of their specific
interests in our research programs to Dr. Shuzo Sakata, email:
shuzo.sakata at strath.ac.uk.
