Come join our team!
Current projects represent collaborations with Children’s hospitals in Israel and the US and focus on the fundamental of language, literacy and reading acquisitions and plasticity in healthy children and atypical developing children (illiterate children, children with dyslexia, with ADHD, with Epilepsy, with Psychiatric disorders and more).
We seek a motivated individual to assist and lead in all aspects of the research process including conducting research and clinical trials, analysis of behavioral, fMRI, sMRI, EEG. Eye-tracking and tDCS data, participation in the development of articles for publication, grant writing, and the mentoring and supervision of students and research assistants.
Qualifications include a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, physics, biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, computer sciences, or a related field; strong experimental and statistical skills; ability to work independently and within a team and strong verbal and written communication skills.
Primary Duties and Responsibilities
● Data collection
● Analysis of neuroimaging data using SPM, AFNI, FSL, FreeSurfer or other software
● Data management
● Management of lab operations
● General research and administrative duties
● PhD in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, computer sciences, cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, or related fields
● Strong programming skills (e.g., shell scripting, Matlab, Python)
● Strong data management skills
● Excellent organizational, interpersonal and communication (written and verbal) skills
Additional Highly Desirable Skills
· Prior research experience with human participants
· Technical experience in fMRI and functional connectivity MRI
· Experience with data-driven techniques (e.g., ICA, graph theory)
· Strong statistical (e.g., SPSS, R) and analytical skills
· Knowledge of neuroanatomy

Prof. Christian P. Müller
The Department of Psychology together with the Agricultural, Biological and Cognitive Robotics (ABC) Robotics initiative at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (www.bgu.ac.il) invites outstanding scientists for a tenure-track position in interdisciplinary robotics at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. The ABC center and its 50 faculty from various departments focus on interdisciplinary research that synergizes robotics with other fields to facilitate innovative designs and new types of algorithms for the robots of the future - machines that can "think for themselves" and intelligently cooperate with humans and the environment. We are especially interested in candidates who conduct research at the crossroads between robotics and various subfields of psychology including emotion and motivation, social psychology, developmental psychology, clinical psychology and cognitive psychology.
The successful candidate will be a faculty in the Department of Psychology and affiliated with the ABC Robotics center. He/she will be expected to conduct an internationally recognized, independent, and externally funded research program in interdisciplinary robotics while supervising graduate students and teaching undergraduate and graduate courses.
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is a comprehensive, research-oriented university with over 20,000 students and 850 faculty members. It is nationally and internationally recognized for its interdisciplinary research and academic programs in the traditional and emerging areas of applied and basic sciences. The Department of Psychology includes over 20 faculty members, 900 undergraduate students and over 100 graduate students who publish extensively in top professional journals and often continue on to prestigious post-doctoral and faculty positions. The department includes 4 graduate programs: Clinical, Social, Cognition and Brain, and Developmental Psychology.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. from an internationally recognized institution, typically have completed post doctoral training, and have a strong record of scholarly achievement commensurate with the rank at which the person will be hired.
