Postdoctoral Fellowship In The Cognitive Neuroscience Of Sleep

Our goal: Our goal is to decode the physiological signals of the brain that support cognition and behaviour across different sleep-wake states and their importance for good cognitive health.   Research interests: Despite continued research to characterize the features of sleep and its underlying physiological processes, the functions of sleep have remained largely enigmatic. The focus of our research is to investigate one of the dominant hypotheses in the field: Read More …

PostDoc – Understanding The Neuronal Circuits For Auditory Perception And Memory

The Geffen laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania has multiple postdoctoral positions open in systems neuroscience with the broad goal of understanding the neuronal circuits for auditory perception and memory. We are looking for energetic and talented scientists interested in studying the function of the brain. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to learn and apply a host of systems neuroscience techniques, including two-photon imaging of population activity, optogenetic manipulations, large-scale electrophysiology and behavior in mice. Prior experience Read More …
