neuroscience/sleep neurobiology and a proven track record of productivity as
evident through published research articles. Working knowledge of rodent
stereotactic survival surgeries, electroencephalography, and immunofluorescent
staining is required. Proficiency in cell biology and biochemistry, and prior
experience with Opto- and pharmacogenetics is highly desirable. The research
project requires extensive use of high performance liquid chromatography and
microdialysis for which the training can be provided. The successful candidate
