Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - The Allada Lab in the Department of Neurobiology

The Allada Laboratory is seeking energetic and highly motivated individuals for open postdoctoral positions. The Allada Lab studies the molecular and circuit basis of sleep and its links to learning, memory, and neurodegenerative disease (Flourakis et al, Cell, 2015; Braun et al., PNAS, 2018; Andreani et al., eLife, 2022). We are located on the Evanston campus of Northwestern University on Lake Michigan just outside of Chicago.

Our research incorporates a wide range of multidisciplinary approaches including molecular (e.g., RNA sequencing, luminescence reporter imaging, proteomics), cellular (e.g, connectomics, optical imaging), and behavioral (e.g., in vivo neuronal activation, memory) in a range of models including flies, mice, and humans. Experience with molecular biology, RNA-sequencing, bioinformatics, patch clamp electrophysiology, optical imaging, Drosophila, and/or mouse models is highly preferred. 

Interested individuals should email a brief statement of research interests, CV, and the names of three references to
