 A post doctoral position is available at the Language and Brain Plasticity Lab of Dr. Tali Bitan, which is part of the IIPDM and the Psychology Department at the University of Haifa. The position is available starting May 2018.

The focus of this position is a neuroimaging training study on second language learning, done in collaboration with Vanderbilt University. Responsibilities include conducting the study, overseeing students, analysis of fMRI data using SPM and other tools, and manuscript writing. Applicants with experience in analysis of fMRI data are welcome to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with relevant cognitive or linguistics background and to candidates with experience in MATLAB programming.

Research in the lab focuses on the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying learning and rehabilitation of linguistic and cognitive skills in healthy adults and children, individuals with atypical development, and acquired neurological disorders. IIPDM is a vibrant research environment that provides opportunities for interactions and training.

Interested applicants should send their CV and contact information of two references to Dr. Tali Bitan: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please include a cover letter explaining your current research activities and expertise.

An open position for postdoctoral fellow to study signaling pathways and plasticity mechanisms that underlie addiction in the laboratory of Prof. Dorit Ron at the University of California, San Francisco.

Research in the Ron lab uses state-of-the-art techniques including, molecular/genetic technique for gene manipulations in subpopulations of neurons in vivo, viral-mediated gene delivery, RNA-seq and analysis in combination of transgenic animals, chemogenetics, and structural plasticity using 3-D reconstruction of single neurons as well as behavioral approaches (Examples, Barak et al. Nature Neuroscience 2013, Warnault et al., Biological Psychiatry 2016, Liu et al. Molecular Psychiatry 2017, Laguesse et al. Neuron 2017). Highly motivated candidates with in depth experience in molecular biology techniques including cloning that will be graduating within the next 6 months or have recently graduated are welcome to apply. The position offers an opportunity to be part of a collaborative team at the vibrant research community at the UCSF Mission Bay campus.
