The lab for neurobiology of psychiatric disorders at the University of Haifa is looking for ambitious and excellent PhD students.

The lab studies the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms of two main subjects: neurodevelopmental disorders and neurostimulation.

The lab uses transgenic mice models and primary cell cultures and employs ex-vivo extracellular and intracellular electrophysiology, live imaging techniques (two-photon microscope), fixed tissues confocal immunofluorescence microscopy, biochemistry workup, computational methods, next-generation sequencing, and bioinformatics.

Highly motivated and bright students with a background in either electrical engineering/physics/chemistry/biology/bioinformatics/neuroscience or any related subject are wanted.  A strong background in any of the abovementioned methods is an advantage but not a must. Fluency in oral and written English is necessary.
