Post-Doctoral Fellowship - Zeitzer laboratory at Stanford University/VA Palo Alto

The Zeitzer laboratory at Stanford University/VA Palo Alto is recruiting a post-doctoral fellow with a guarantee of at least two years of funding. The anticipated start date is September 1, 2016, with funding being provided by the Department of Defense. The overarching purpose of this project is to determine the parameters of sequences of light flashes to optimize their effects in shifting the timing of the human circadian clock. We have recently shown that these light flashes can be more effective than continuous light at evoking changes in circadian phase ( For a more complete list of publications see: Fellows are expected to maintain a rigorous scientific project and will be responsible for the conduct, supervision, and analysis of all aspects of the protocol.

A PhD in with a focus on circadian rhythms, sleep, or visual neurobiology is required.
