The Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC) builds upon Hebrew University‘s record of excellence and innovation in its multidisciplinary approach to brain sciences.
ELSC invites applications for postdoctoral fellows in the following fields: theoretical and computational neuroscience, systems neuroscience, molecular and cellular mechanisms, cognitive neuroscience, and neuronal circuits. Postdoctoral fellows receive a competitive stipend for a period of up to two years.
We at ELSC, invite you to be part of our flourishing research environment and community. We focus, in particular, on the theoretical and experimental study of the dynamics and computational capabilities of neural networks. Our goal is to develop new insights into the mechanisms underlying normal brain function and brain dysfunction.
The successful candidate will demonstrate a record of excellence in his/her field. Applicants are expected to work closely with other research teams and develop a solid theoretical and computational foundation in their area of research. Specific emphasis will be placed on interdisciplinary research that uses molecular, optical and electrophysiological methods for manipulating neuronal networks that are directly related to specific behaviors.
1. Students in an accredited institution of higher education whose PhD training and postdoctoral projects are in the field of Brain Sciences.
2. Students whose Doctoral degree has been submitted in the current year of applying or will be approved by the following year.
3. Prospective applicants are required to have a host from the ELSC’s PIs
