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.

חיפוש סטודנט\ית לתואר שלישי מחקר בחומרים פסיכדליים

Open positions for MSc and PhD students in the Levy lab at the Faculty of Biology, Technion (https://sagilevy.net.technion.ac.il/).

We study how neuronal networks process information to drive behavior, at the molecular, physiological and computational levels. For that, we investigate mechanisms underlying sensation, decision making, learning and memory in the simple nervous system of C. elegans nematodes. Our research combines mathematical modeling, systems biology, genetics and cutting-edge experimental tools, including optogenetics, advanced microscopy, and microfluidic devices for analysis of behavior and neuronal activity in free-moving animals.

We are looking for highly motivated students with background in biology or exact sciences. Strong background in neuroscience, computational skills or experience in the techniques mentioned above is an advantage. Applicants should send a CV with a brief statement of interest to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
