The Omer lab at Hebrew university of Jerusalem is seeking highly motivated post-doctoral fellows to participate in a research program aimed at elucidating the neural basis of social cognition and navigation in the primate brain. The lab is situated at the Edmond & Lily Safra center for brain sciences – a worldwide leading center in the field of neuroscience.
There are positions for each of the following two projects testing freely-moving marmoset monkeys:
1. Neural basis of social cognition in the marmoset hippocampus.
2. Spatial Navigation – neural basis of spatial navigation in freely behaving marmosets.
Candidates should have a strong scientific background in systems and/or computational neuroscience. Individuals with expertise in neurophysiological recordings in behaving animals (in primate or non-primate models), molecular technologies and/or computational analysis are particularly encouraged to apply.
The positions are funded by the Edmond and Lily Safra center for Brain Sciences, and are available immediately.
For more information or to apply for the position, please contact [email protected].
Applicants should send a CV, brief statement of interest and a list of 2 references.
