We are looking for highly qualified and motivated PhD students fellows to conduct cutting edge interdisciplinary research in neuroscience. Qualified applicants are expected to hold an MSc in biology, neuroscience or related science/engineering discipline and a strong background in system neuroscience. Applicants are expected to be creative, communicative and capable of independent analytical thinking. The successful candidate should have some previous experience in Neurophysiology (preferably in-vivo electrophysiology), interest in neuroscience together with good written and verbal English communication skills. Willingness to apply multidisciplinary experimental techniques is a relevant prerequisite. Proven experience in Matlab programming and data analysis is mandatory. Trainee will work in a highly interactive multidisciplinary research environment at Ben-Gurion University.
The ongoing projects in our lab aim to link biophysics, computation and function in the somatosensory system. We address questions from the tip of the whisker to network activity in the cortex. Research focuses on coding of tactile stimuli and its impact on action planning and adaptation.
The lab applies an integrative experimental approach combining neurophysiological techniques (in-vivo electrophysiological recordings, calcium imaging and optogenetics) with in-vitro and behavioral analysis.
Applications should include a detailed CV, a brief statement of research experience and interests and names of at least two references.
