Funded postdoctoral and Ph.D. positions in theoretical and computational neuroscience or experimental neurophysiology are available at the Ben-Gurion University, Be'er-Sheva, Israel.
We are looking for highly motivated post-doctoral fellows and PhD students to lead projects aiming to explore the rodent whisker somatosensory system, the visual system, and possible applications to robotics. Fellows and students will participate in collaborative research combining neurophysiology and computational neuroscience with emphasis on the dynamic transformation of sensory information along the sensory pathways at the brainstem, thalamic and cortical levels, as well as sensory-motor control.
Candidates should have a strong background in neurophysiology, physics, mathematics or electrical engineering, and be proficient programmers and creative thinkers. The Ben-Gurion University has strong and interacting neuroscience and robotic communities. Be'er-Sheva is within one-hour train ride from Tel-Aviv.
Deadline: May 1, 2014 or until position fulfilled.
