This opportunity has arisen to join Professors Vladyslav Vyazovskiy and Zoltan Mólnar on their BBSRC project grant entitled “Brain mechanisms of sleep: top-down or bottom-up?”. The aim of the project is to identify the role of specific cortical and cortico-subcortical projections in sleep regulation. We will apply a combination of cutting-edge methodologies in the mouse model. This will include in vivo electrophysiology, neuroanatomical tracing methods, chemogenetics and circadian manipulations.

The post holder’s duties will include: managing your own academic research and administrative activities; adapting existing and developing new scientific techniques; testing hypotheses and analysing scientific data; contributing ideas for new research projects; collaborating in the preparation of scientific reports; acting as a source of information to other members of the group; representing the research group at external meetings; carrying out collaborative projects.

The post holder must hold, or be close to completion of, a PhD/DPhil in Neurobiology or a related area of research, together with relevant experience. They must have considerable experience in techniques of in vivo neurophysiology, including procedures associated with in vivo electrophysiology (EEG/LFP electrode implantation etc.) and experience of recording and analysing sleep/wake in rodents, and experience of working with viral vectors. They must have proficiency in computational analyses of electrophysiological signals, such as EEG and local field potentials and have the ability to manage own academic research and associated activities. They will also need previous experience of contributing to publications/presentations. It would be desirable if they hold a Home Office personal license and have experience in neuropharmacology and various routes of drug administration in small rodents as well as circadian biology experiments/interventions.

The post is available from 1st May 2023, or as soon as possible.

The post will be based in the Kavli Institute for Nanoscience Discovery, Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin Building, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3QU.
