We are currently recruiting highly motivated candidates for M.Sc. and Ph.D. studies
neural circuits that underlie key visual functions in the retina and brain, including light adaptation and direction – and orientation-selectivity. We also study non-image-forming photoreception and the role of diverse brain pathways in mediating the effect of abnormal lighting on mood.
integrates an unparalleled array of cutting-edge techniques:
• Opto- and chemogenetics
• Functional imaging
• in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology
• Serial electron microscopy
• Behavioral analysis
Successful candidates will show solid communication skills in English, ability to work both independently and as part of a research team, strong scientific motivation, and skill in data processing. Experience in one or more of the following would be an advantage: intracranial surgeries, optogenetics, animal behavioral analysis, two-photon imaging, whole-cell and in vivo electrophysiology, and Matlab or python programing.
An application package, including a motivation letter, curriculum vitae, and names of 2-3 referees, should be sent to Dr. Shai Sabbah (firstname.lastname@example.org).
