Funded postdoctoral positions in theoretical and computational neuroscience and experimental neurophysiology are available at the Ben-Gurion University, Be'er-Sheva, Israel. We are looking for highly motivated post-doctoral fellows to lead a neurophysiology and neurophysics project aiming to explore the whisker somatosensory system, the visual system, and possible applications to robotics. Students and fellows will participate in projects aimed to characterize the dynamic transformation of sensory information along the sensory pathways at the brainstem, thalamic and cortical levels, and 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.
