*Joint research project between MIT and FAU*

Spend the Spring semester (2019) visiting two booming neuroscience hubs:
Jupiter, Florida and Boston, Massachusetts

We are looking for a talented student that will apply analytical techniques
to study the dynamics of cellular interactions that underlie the
consolidation of memory during sleep.  The project will involve the
analysis of neural data (single cells, local field potentials) recorded
from multiple brain areas (neocortex, thalamus, hippocampus) in sleeping
rodents.

The project is a collaboration between the laboratories of Drs. Carmen
Varela (Florida Atlantic University, FAU) and Matthew Wilson (Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, MIT).

*Requirements:*  Outstanding interpersonal and communication skills,
demonstrated initiative and dedication, ability to learn fast. Strong
analytical skills, including signal processing and programming. Majors in
EECS, Physics and Neuroscience are encouraged to apply.



*What you get:  *

·       A paid semester of research (with possibility of extension) in
systems neuroscience, including the application of analytical skills to
electrophysiology data.

·       Learn about neuroscience opportunities in two thriving
environments, MIT and FAU:  the Jupiter campus of FAU is a rapidly growing
neuroscience hub that also holds our partners the Max Planck Florida
Institute for Neuroscience and Scripps Research Institute.  Gain additional
direct insight into MIT’s established programs and laboratories.

·       Possibility of presenting results from your work at a neuroscience
conference.



*Contact:*  Submit resume and a brief paragraph commenting on how your
skills and background could be helpful to this neuroscience project. Let
Dr. Carmen Varela know when you would be available for an interview.
