Ph.D. Student

The Boccara lab at NCMM, University of Oslo is seeking applications for a fully funded PhD position in Sleep Neuroscience with a specific focus on in vivo electrophysiology. This position offers a unique opportunity for a highly motivated and talented individual to contribute to cutting-edge research in the field of sleep and its impact on brain function.
Research Project: The successful candidate will join a dynamic and interdisciplinary research team that investigates the neural mechanisms underlying sleep and its role in cognitive processes. The project aims to explore the electrophysiological correlates of sleep in animal models, with a particular focus on understanding the dynamics of neuronal activity during different stages of sleep. The project will involve the use of advanced electrophysiological techniques, such as multi-unit recordings, local field potentials, and potentially single-unit recordings, to decipher the complex patterns of brain activity during sleep.

Postdoctoral Researcher

Applications are invited for a 2 to 3 year Postdoctoral Fellowship/Researcher for an interdisciplinary project combining Cell Biology and Systems Neuroscience to study the interplay between sleep and autophagy from a phylogenetic perspective. The selected candidate will join two ERC-funded laboratories at the University of Oslo: Helene Knævelsrud´s group Cell Stress and Cancer at the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences and Charlotte Boccara’s group Systems Neuroscience and Sleep at the Norwegian Centre for Molecular Medicine.
