We are looking for a talented and highly motivated postdoc interested in
studying the *dynamics of thalamic cell ensemble activity during learning
and memory in rodents. *One of the goals in the Varela lab is to investigate
the spike dynamics and brain states that allow animals to learn and make
sense of their environment. https://www.varelalab.org/
     The postdoctoral researcher will gain expertise in systems and
behavioral neuroscience using extracellular electrophysiology and behavior
to study the spike dynamics associated with sleep-dependent memory
consolidation. Possibility of contributing to additional collaborative
     We are a small young lab and highly interactive; we love what we do
and work closely to support and help each other succeed. The lab is located
in the beautiful Jupiter campus of Florida Atlantic University, a rapidly
growing neuroscience hub that also holds our partners, the Max Planck
Florida Institute for Neuroscience and Scripps Research Institute.

*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.
Start date flexible, January-May of 2021.
