A two-year postdoctoral position in clinical/cognitive neuroscience is available in the Department of Psychology at the University of Haifa. The postdoc will be supervised by Dr. Roee Admon and Dr. Tomer Shechner on two major projects. The first project examines the association between brain functioning of anxious youth during fear learning and cognitive behavioral treatment for anxiety. This research project includes designing an fMRI task, recruiting anxious youth, collecting and analyzing fMRI data, and writing the results in peer-reviewed publications. The second project will focus on analyzing an existing data set from a large sample of a diverse psychopathological population. For this project, the postdoc will have the opportunity to conduct high-end neuroimaging analyses.

We are looking for candidates who have experience in human neuroimaging research, preferably fMRI. More importantly, we are seeking candidates who are passionate and committed to clinical and neuroimaging research.

The position is for two years starting May-Sep 2017. Following a positive evaluation, the appointment could be extended for a third year.

Applications should be sent by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow to work on an Israel Science Foundation (ISF)-funded grant focused on individual differences in structural and functional hemispheric asymmetries, and involves pharmacological manipulations, behavioral measures, and brain imaging (structural and functional MRI) investigations.

The position is funded for 2 years (with the possibility of extension for a third year). Starting date is flexible, the position is available immediately.

Candidates should have, or be about to receive, a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience, Psychology or a related field and should have experience in cognitive neuroscience methods, including fMRI data collection, analysis and interpretation, and strong programming skills.

To apply, please send a cover letter (including expected date of availability, C.V and the names of three individuals who could provide references if required, to Prof. Rachel Tomer (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

We are seeking highly motivated students or researchers for a research position. Background in neuroscience and strong data analysis abilities are required.

Our lab focuses on the sensory systems, in particular the olfactory system. We are utilizing the recently developed exciting method of optogenetics together with large scale multiunit recordings and behavioral assays. We are interested in how neurons encode and decode information and how information is represented in successive brain regions. We are also trying to build a bio-electric nose that will enable the detection of any odor a mouse can detect.
