Topic: Molecular and Neural mechanisms underlying circadian rhythms and sleep in Drosophila. Preferred skill sets: solid knowledge of molecular biology, genetics, neural imaging. Candidates having experience with Drosophila are encouraged to apply, although this is not a pre-requisite. Postdoctoral position - Circadian rhythms and sleep - Emery Laboratory - UMass Chan Medical SchoolThe Emery lab studies biological rhythms in Invertebrates and is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying circadian rhythms and sleep in Drosophila. We use a combination of behavioral, molecular, genetic and imaging methods to understand how circadian oscillations are generated and synchronized with environmental cycles, how the circadian neural network functions, and how these neural and molecular mechanisms produce rhythmic behaviors. We are also interested in the mechanisms underlying sleep, particularly the role of glia in sleep modulation.Our lab is located at the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School in Worcester, Central Massachusetts, and is part of the Neurobiology department. Our department is an outstanding scientific environment for postdoctoral fellows interested in Chronobiology and Neuroscience. It is highly interactive and collaborative, and is a unique hub for Invertebrate Neuroscience research. Candidates with strong expertise in molecular biology, genetics and neural imaging will be given priority. Candidates having experience with Droosphila are particularly encouraged to apply. The position is fully funded and immediately available.
