 *We are opening a postdoctoral position to investigate non-invasive
approaches to enhance sleep oscillations and memory function in rats. *This
translational project is part of a collaboration between the laboratories
of Dr. Carmen Varela (Psychology Department, Florida Atlantic University,
FAU; https://www.varelalab.org/) and Dr. Dara Manoach (Massachusetts
General Hospital-Harvard Medical School). The project will be conducted at
FAU and it will involve frequent interaction with collaborators in Boston.

   The postdoc will gain expertise in systems and translational
neuroscience using electrophysiology (cell ensemble and LFP recording with
high-density probes) and behavior in rodents, as well as expertise on the
mechanisms underlying normal and disrupted sleep-dependent memory
consolidation processes and the use of non-invasive technologies to
regulate them.

*Requirements:*   PhD with experience in electrophysiology and rodent
models; outstanding interpersonal skills and motivation to work in a
collaborative environment. Experience with MATLAB (or other programming
languages) preferred. Candidates selected for an interview will be asked to
provide contact information for three references.


*Anticipated start day in January 2021. * One year with possibility of
extension.

Interested applicants, please submit your curriculum to Carmen Varela:
