Deciphering the neural code for space & territoriality

Position: Ph.D. Student

Deadline: 1 August 2023

Employment Start Date: 1 September 2023

City: Jerusalem

Country: Israel

Institution: The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Department: Safra Center for Brain Science


How does our brain integrate coding of space with social codes to perceive a territory? The Omer lab ( is hiring excellent postdocs fellows & graduate students to join an ERC-Synergy funded research.

Our goal is to understanding how neural spatial codes for self and others in the hippocampus are modulated by the neuromodulator Oxytocin and compute territorial behavior.

We use wireless recording technology in freely behaving marmoset monkeys and develop mechanistic data-driven models that aim to map behavioral computations onto neural activity.

Our lab is interdisciplinary and excellent students from fields of Neuroscience, Physics, Engineering, Biology, Computer-science and Psychology are welcome to apply. Please send your CV, course transcripts, and thesis (if relevant) to
