Postdoctoral position in neurophysiology of social cognition and navigation, ELSC, Jerusalem
The Omer lab at Hebrew university of Jerusalem is seeking highly motivated post-doctoral fellows to participate in a research program aimed at elucidating the neural basis of social cognition and navigation in the primate brain. The lab is situated at the Edmond & Lily Safra center for brain sciences – a worldwide leading center in the field of neuroscience.
There are positions for each of the following two projects testing freely-moving marmoset monkeys:
(1) Neural basis of social cognition in the marmoset hippocampus.
(2) Spatial Navigation – neural basis of spatial navigation in freely behaving marmosets.
Candidates should have a strong scientific background in systems and/or computational neuroscience. Individuals with expertise in neurophysiological recordings in behaving animals (in primate or non-primate models), molecular technologies and/or computational analysis are particularly encouraged to apply.
The positions are funded by the Edmond and Lily Safra center for Brain Sciences, and are available immediately.
Applicants should send a CV, brief statement of interest and a list of 2 references.
