The Omer lab at the Edmond & Lily Safra Center for brain Sciences (ELSC) –
The Hebrew University, is seeking highly motivated students at all levels (MA,
PhD and Postdoc) to participate in a research program aimed at elucidating the
neural mechanisms of social cognition and navigation in the brain, using a
combination of computational and experimental techniques.
Positions are available for projects related to the neural basis of social cognition
in the hippocampus, and the neural basis of spatial navigation in freely
behaving animals.
Candidates should have a strong scientific background in systems and/or
computational neuroscience, and solid communication skills in English. Individuals
with expertise in neurophysiological recordings and/or computational
background (MATLAB/Python), are particularly encouraged to apply.

Call for applications: Tenure Track Faculty Position in Computational Neuroscience
A full-time tenure-track faculty position in Computational Neuroscience is available at the Sagol Department of Neurobiology, University of Haifa, Israel (http://neuroscience.haifa.ac.il/index.php/en/?lang=en) starting at the academic year of 2022-2023. Individuals with two or more years of postdoctoral experience and a strong publication record are encouraged to apply.
We are seeking candidates in the broad field of Computational Neuroscience. Successful candidates are expected to engage in independent research funded by external competitive funding, graduate students' instruction, and academic teaching. Candidates are not expected to conduct experimental research.
Applications will be accepted until January 31, 2022.
Each application package must be sent to the Departmental Search Committee by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and include the following items:
A cover letter
A complete resume including a list of publications
Research statement
Teaching statement
In addition, at least three recommendation letters, including one from the Ph.D. supervisor and one from the Post-doc supervisor, should be addressed and sent directly to the Departmental Search Committee.job

A PhD position is available at Prof. Rami Yaka at the School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Medicine, Hebrew University. The lab investigates the neural pathways and synaptic changes underlying addiction. The main focus for the current position is to study the engagement of learning and memory mechanisms (LTP, LTD) in addiction and how manipulations of these changes can prevent relapse (see recent publication Bingor et al., Nature Comm. 2020). We study these questions in transgenic mice using state-of-the-art electrophysiological, optogenetics, pharmacogenetics and behavioral tools. Experience with electrophysiology or behavior is a plus.
Highly motivated candidates are welcome to contact:

Research opportunity
How do neural circuits in the brain allow us to make decisions, interact with each other, and learn?
A new lab in the faculty of medicine, Technion, studies these questions using state-of-the-art tools including multiphoton imaging, a virtual-reality behavioral system for mice, and laser-controlled brain manipulations.
In the lab we investigate the neural activity underlying complex behavior in mice and focus on the brain’s dopamine system, which is essential to many cognitive processes such as decision-making and social behavior. Projects in the lab are varied and suitable to a wide variety of backgrounds (engineering, biology, physics, and more). We currently have openings for undergraduate projects, Masters and PhD students.
