Job Description

· To investigate the molecular and cellular mechanisms through which sleep deprivation modulates the acute and persistent inhibition of short and long-term memory.

· Identify and localize changes in gene expression associated with sleep deprivation and circadian modulation of memory at the sub-circuit and neuronal level using deep transcriptome sequencing, isoform expression analysis, QPCR and in situ hybridization.

· Behavioral pharmacology, circadian analysis and protein biochemistry also will be used to test potential signaling mechanisms modulated during memory formation.

· Experience with molecular biology, fluorescent microscopy, genome-wide expression assays and bioinformatics is preferred
