PhD Positions

PhD Fellowship in Sleep & Metabolism – Smartsense Consortium

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD Fellowship for an interdisciplinary project combining Systems Neuroscience and Metabolism to establish mouse models of adolescent sleep deprivation and investigate the impact of poor sleep during critical developmental periods on long-term metabolic imbalance.
Charlotte will be the main supervisor of the successful candidate.

Postdoctoral Positions

NCMM Postdoctoral Fellowship in Sleep & Autophagy – joint position with Dr. Knævelsrud

Applications are invited for a 2-to-3-year Researcher/Postdoctoral Fellowship for a project combining Cell Biology and Systems Neuroscience to study the interplay between sleep and autophagy. This joint project aims to develop tools and strategies to study autophagy during sleep in an invertebrate (Drosophila) and a rodent (rat) model of sleep deprivation. Our goal is to highlight autophagy as a phylogenetically conserved mediator of sleep-benefits at a cellular level.
The selected candidate will join two ERC-funded laboratories in Oslo: Helene Knævelsrud´s at the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences and Charlotte Boccara’s at NCMM.

BrainChip Postdoctoral Fellowship in Optogenetics – joint position with Dr. Hafting

Applications are invited for a 2-to-3-year Researcher/Postdoctoral Fellowship to study neural activity in vivo. The selected candidate will be part of “BrainChip”, an interdisciplinary project between the University of Oslo and engineers at Sintef, aiming to develop wireless devices for long-term recording and manipulation of multiunit activity. This position is aimed at experienced electrophysiologists. There will be some flexibilities as to the research subject and inputs from the candidate will be welcomed!

Norpod postdoctoral Fellowship – joint position with Dr. Chao Sun (Dandrite)

Applications are invited for a 2-to-3-year Postdoctoral Fellowship to investigate the regulation of protein clearance during sleep by an important cellular signal for protein homeostasis. By integrating sleep behaviour experiments, subcellular biochemistry and proteomics, this project aims to unveil how synapses use ubiquitin to rebalance molecular homeostasis during sleep.
The selected candidate will join the laboratory of Dr Chao Sun in Denmark while making several short-to-mid length stays in the BoccaraLab in Oslo to collect animal data. Accommodations in Oslo will be provided.
