 <https://sites.lsa.umich.edu/diba-lab/>The Diba Lab
<https://sites.lsa.umich.edu/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
<https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-18-175.html>.

Our lab is housed in the Department of Anesthesiology and the Center for
Consciousness Science <https://consciousness.med.umich.edu/> at Michigan
Medicine. We are affiliated with the Department of Biomedical Engineering
<http://bme.umich.edu/explore-research/> and the Neuroscience Graduate
Program <http://neuroscience.med.umich.edu/program-0>. 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
<https://annarborusa.org/insights/communities/facts-rankings/> 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 at umich.edu with a detailed C.V.
or resume and a description of research background, skills, and interests.

A top-ranked public university, the University of Michigan has a tradition
of excellence in research, learning and teaching, sports and the arts, and
more. The neuroscience community at the University of Michigan encompasses
over 154 participating faculty from among 29 departments from the School of
Medicine (including the Department of Anesthesiology), College of
Literature Science and Arts, College of Engineering, School of Dentistry,
School of Kinesiology and School of Public Health. As the longest standing
neuroscience Ph.D. program in the United States the Neuroscience Graduate
Program at U-Michigan has built an exceptional graduate program that
features collaborative interactions among faculty and integration across
individual disciplines. The program is composed of 70 to 80 graduate
students (currently, 52% women, 30% under-represented minorities) and has
more than 130 successful and accomplished alumni that work in academic
research, industrial research and development, academic medicine and
biotechnology. The NGP sponsors many activities that foster development of
an active and cohesive neuroscience community on campus (e.g. Weekly
Neuroscience Research Seminars, Annual Retreat, Spring Symposium, and
Community Outreach).
