Research positions at Parent and Infant Relations Institute, IDC
The focus of this unique institute is the study of the early relationship formed between parents and infants and its impact on child's social and emotional development. The PAIR institute also explores and evaluates effectiveness of different therapeutic approaches designed for parents and infants. The institute is committed to lead cutting-edge research using innovative methodologies (including behavioural, physiological, genetic and imaging profiles) to further illuminate the significance of early relational experiences to later development.
We are now in the process of recruiting candidates for post-doctoral and experienced developmental researchers positions both in Israel and abroad, and would be very grateful if you would be able to circulate the attached call for applications (Hebrew and English) to your mailing list. We are determined to recruit leading and ambitious researchers that will contribute to the Israeli scholarly excellence.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neuroscience: Rehovot, Israel.
A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the laboratory of Prof. Ilan Lampl at The Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel. The goals of the research is to study the mechanisms of state-dependent changes in cortical synaptic dynamics using the state of the art in-vivo intracellular recording, optogenetic and 2-photon microscopy methods in the rodent's sensory systems.
Post-doctoral position: Pre-clinical studies of axonal regeneration and a pathogenic neurotropic virus using human neurons derived from embryonic stem cells:
Position funded for up to three years by the ISF. Project involves growing and genetic engineering of human embryonic stem cell lines, differentiating stem cells to neurons, lentiviral generation and infection and computerized morphometry.
Requirements: extensive experience in cell culture and basic molecular biology techniques. Background in neurobiology and/or FACS sorting a plus. Salary and hours negotiable.
Please send CV and name and email of thesis advisor(s) to:

Two UCSF Postdoctoral Positions in Addiction: Electrophysiology and Optogenetics
A junior and a senior postdoctoral fellows are required to study synaptic transmission/plasticity and addiction in the laboratories of Drs. Dorit Ron and Jun Wang at the Gallo Research Center and the University of California, San Francisco.
Research in the labs uses state-of-the-art technologies, including patch-clamp recording from genetically identified neurons using transgenic animals, optogenetics, viral-mediated regulation of specific genes, analysis of structural plasticity using 3-D reconstruction of single neurons in combination with molecular and behavioral procedures. The positions also offer opportunity to be part of a collaborative team of multidisciplinary laboratory scientists and of a vibrant research community in UCSF mission bay campus.
Candidates with a Ph.D. and/or M.D. in Neuroscience and prior in depth experience with slice electrophysiology, including whole-cell and cell-attached recordings, are encouraged to apply. Ability to measure glutamatergic transmission in striatal slices and dopaminergic firing in midbrain slices is desired. Experience with immunohistochemistry and confocal imaging is a big plus.
