Postdoctoral position in the Laboratory for Brain and Behavior at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
A Postdoctoral fellow position is available immediately at the Laboratory for Brain and Behavior, directed by Prof. Raz Yirmiya at the Department of Psychology, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. We are seeking a highly motivated and well-trained postdoctoral fellow to lead a novel and exciting project that has just received long-term funding from the Israel Science Foundation. The project will focus on the role of microglia in stress and depression. Specifically, studies on the biological basis of major depression usually focus on abnormalities in neuronal functions, but our preliminary findings provide strong evidence that chronic stress-induced depression is caused by microglial pathology. The overall goal of the project will be to elucidate the role of microglia in major depression by examining the hypothesis that dynamic, bi-directional alterations in microglia number and activation status are causally related to stress-induced depressive-like behavior and associated changes in neuroplasticity (particularly suppressed neurogenesis and neurotrophins production) in rodents. The successful candidate should hold a PhD in Neuroscience or Psychobiology, with solid experience in immunohistochemistry, molecular biology and behavioural analysis.
A full scholarship for the suitable candidate is guaranteed.
Postdoc position at Ben Gurion U starting October 2012
Postdoc position in Neuroimaging available at the Department of Psychology, Ben Gurion University, starting October 2012
Our lab uses neuroimaging techniques including MRI and EEG to study brain function and structure in autism. The two focuses of the lab are 1) to better understand the underlying physiology of individuals with autism and determine how it differs from other disorders, and 2) to develop new diagnosis techniques, which will enable early identification of autism based on physiological measurements from young children. See www.dinshi.com for details about research.
The lab is in initial stages of setup and we are searching for a candidate with a strong neuroscience background who has experience in designing, performing, and interpreting fMRI, MRI, DTI, and/or EEG studies. Knowledge of matlab is critical and knowledge of other programming languages and relevant software (e.g. Brainvoyager, Analyzer, DTI-studio, E-Prime, and Freesurfer) is advantageous. An independent “rosh-gadol” would be highly appreciated.
Funding is guaranteed for the first year and will likely continue for several years to come.
Postdoc position in Electrophysiology
Postdoc position in Electrophysiology is currently available at the Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm Sweden.
Research: Our lab uses electrophysiological, morphological, optogenetic, and computational methods to study neural microcircuits in the neocortex and basal-ganglia. In particular we are interested in the dynamic properties of neuronal microcircuits underlying sensory and motor processing. We study the dynamic interactions between different types of excitatory and inhibitory neurons in order to unravel the way neural networks are structured and dynamically orchestrated.

We are currently seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in the lab. Candidates should have a strong neuroscience background with documented experience in electrophysiological techniques. Knowledge of neuroanatomy, imaging, and computer programming are advantageous. The project will involve multi neuron patch-clamp recordings in vitro and in vivo in neocortex and basal ganglia combined with optogenetics. The project is funded by an ERC starting grant, supporting the position and the necessary equipment for carrying out the projects.
Funding is guaranteed for the first 2 years and may be extended according to progress and available funding. The position will be open until a suitable candidate is found, but preferential treatment will be given to applications submitted before June 30th.
