Job ID: 69927

PhD/Post-doc in systems neuroscience of brain-body interactions

Position: Post-doctoral Position

Deadline: 31 August 2022

City: Rehovot

Country: Israel

Institution: Weizmann Institute of Science

Department: Dept. of Brain Sciences


We are looking for enthusiastic students and researchers from diverse backgrounds, including (but not limited to) biology, physics, medicine, physiology, psychology, engineering, and more. We have several ERC-funded positions at different levels.

Our lab studies brain-body interactions. We focus on the computations of insular cortex and its bidirectional communication with the body. We use cellular and sub-cellular two-photon imaging, together with circuit-mapping, circuit manipulation and computational approaches. We combine these approaches with  measurements and manipulations of bodily physiology, in the context of goal-directed behaviors.
