Thomas Jefferson University Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral Position in Drosophila Neurobiology

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Kyunghee Koh at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia to study the molecular and cellular basis of sleep regulation in Drosophila. We are interested in identifying novel genes and neural circuits required for sleep and circadian rhythms. Sleep is an essential, evolutionarily conserved process, and Drosophila sleep is an exciting new research area with many opportunities. Highly motivated individuals with a recent Ph.D. in neurobiology, genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, and/or molecular biology and a strong publication record are encouraged to apply. To apply, please send CV, a letter describing research experience and career goals, and contact information for three references to FlySleepLab@gmail.com
