Postdoctoral/doctoral position in animal behavior – with Prof. David Eilam, Tel Aviv University

Postdoctoral/doctoral positions are immediately available for candidates with interest in understanding the interaction between behavior, social rank, and hormones.
We are searching for candidates with strong background in behavioral analysis. Knowledge in endocrinology / stress hormones is desirable. The successful applicants will investigate the impact of social rank and gender on collective behavior in voles. The emphasis in the project is on behavioral analysis, but the project also involves manipulation of the social rank with testosterone and oxytocin, and measuring corticosteroid level.
The research will be conducted in semi-natural conditions, at the research zoo of the Department of Zoology, Tel-Aviv University, Israel. This laboratory is specialized in fine-grained analysis of behavior, especially in the context of spatial behavior, motor rituals, and predator-prey interactions (see http://www.tau.ac.il/lifesci/departments/zoology/members/eilam/eilam.html)

Interested applicants must be ambitious, industrious and skillful, and with a track record of publications. A PhD in Zoology/Biology/Psychology, or a related discipline is required for a postdoctoral position. The candidates must have real interest in animal behavior and a capacity to run extensive projects with wild rodents.

The position is immediately available for 1 year, and could be extended for additional years. Candidates should send by email a CV, a research statement, indicating scientific interests and relevant experience, and the names of 3 reference persons to Dr. David Eilam, This email address is being protected from spambots.
