"Biological mechanisms of social interaction and compassion"

Highly motivated applicants with a deep interest in the biological mechanisms of social interaction and compassion are invited to apply for a postdoctoral position starting on or before fall 2015. The primary responsibilities of the fellow include: 1) development of experimental paradigms with a focus on naturalistic interpersonal setups 2) basic and advanced analysis of physiological data (autonomic system and EMG) 3) management of a large-sample data collection 4) manuscript preparation. Project includes both normal population studies and compassion intervention studies.

This is a collaborative position between the Sagol Center for Brain and Mind (IDC, Israel) and the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds (Wisconsin University, USA). The researcher will be primarily located in Israel with annual travels to University of Wisconsin-Madison. The position is fully funded for three years and also includes dedicated funds for research expenses.

Requirements: The position is designed for a productive researcher with a PhD in biological psychology or neuroscience, who wishes to develop innovative approaches in social neuroscience. A background in designing and analyzing physiological experiments is required. Preference is given for candidates with strong computational skills, experience with Matlab programming, and experimental software, such as Psych Toolbox or Python. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

Candidates should send a CV and cover letter to Yulia Golland (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), and should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the same address. Please include "postdoctoral fellowship" in the subject line of any correspondence. The cover letter should include a summary of the candidate's research interests to date and a statement of future research interests.

 We are a team of young neurologists at the Felsenstein Medical Research Center associated with the Department of Neurology at Beilinson Hospital, Petach Tikva, Israel. We are looking for a motivated and interested student for a PhD position starting now. Our research is closely associated with the disease spectrum we experience at the neurology department with a focus on neurodegeneration and epilepsy and has a strong translational component. A wide range of methods is being used and will be acquired by you: molecular genetics, PCR, immune-blot, histology, electrophysiology and more. Additionally we are very open for new ideas and happy for your initiative! Please for your application, be in touch with us by E-mail including a short introduction and letter of motivation as well as curriculum vitae. We are looking forward to meeting you.

The Gonda Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center at Bar-Ilan University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Cognitive Neuroscience or Computational Neuroscience.

Researchers at the Gonda Center study the brain at all levels - from behavior and cognitive processing through detailed mechanisms of information processing in neural circuits, to the analysis of vital molecules within nerve cells. Research approaches cover all techniques from behavior and psychophysics, through electrophysiology in animal and human models, and from molecular biology to abstract mathematical modeling. The multidisciplinary nature of the center, housing all aspects of Neuroscientific research under one roof, provides a stimulating and vibrant environment, and encourages collaboration and cross-pollination across fields of expertise. More information about the center can be found at: http://www.gondabrain.biu.ac.il/

A PhD position is available at the laboratory of Yoni Kupchik in the Hebrew University. The lab investigates the neural pathways and synaptic changes underlying addiction and obesity. What are the changes that cause addicts to lose control over their desire to obtain drugs? Do similar changes occur in obesity? We study these questions in transgenic mice using state-of-the-art electrophysiological, optogenetic, pharmacogenetic and behavioral tools. Experience with electrophysiology or behavior is a plus.
