Open Positions

The laboratory of Noam Ziv is seeking an MSc or PhD student to study the processes that allow the preservation of connections among brain cells (synapses) in aging and disease, as part of a large international consortium focused on this topic. The project will involve testing the effects of potentially beneficial treatments using long term imaging, molecular reporters and proteomics. Contact:

The neuroscience groups are in an active phase of growth. We are seeking highly motivated individuals for laboratory technicians, graduate studies and post-doctoral associate positions. To inquire, please contact group leaders directly for scientific details, and Dr. Shai Berlin ( for information regarding the graduate program (see also Graduate Program).

The Neural circuits for complex behavior lab is just starting and we are seeking students at all levels, including undergraduate projects, MSc and PhD.

Our lab uses advanced optical technology in behaving mice to understand how deep-brain circuits underlie complex behaviors such as decision-making and social behavior. We are especially focused on the brain’s Dopamine system and are also interested in its relation to neuropsychiatric conditions such as autism. Projects in the lab are suited to a wide variety of backgrounds including engineering, biology, computer science, and more.

The lab of Prof. Simone Engelender is seeking MSc or PhD studentis to investigate mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Parkinson’s disease. The lab uses various molecular biology, cell biology and neurobiology techniques, including new mice transgenic models. Contact:

The newly established Educational Neuroimaging Center at the Technion is focused on the underlying physiological and functional factors for language and reading development in children using functional MRI, advanced structural imaging techniques (e.g. Diffusion Tensor Imaging) as well as EEG and eye tracking devices.

We are seeking motivated, creative post-docs, MSc and PhD students and data analysts with a background in biology, neuroscience, computer sciences, computer/electrical/biomedical engineering interested in joining this dynamic field.

For details contact Dr. Tzipi Horowitz-Kraus at

The Theoretical Neuroscience lab is just starting and we are seeking postdocs and graduate students.

Research topics include the nature of neural representation, interaction between multiple neural timescales, and reverse engineering of recurrent neural networks. More importantly, our experimental neighbors offer a range of stimulating results to think about. Applicants should not be afraid of math.

The Spatial Perception and Memory lab is currently seeking a postdoc or PhD student for exciting projects investigating the brain’s navigation circuits. Our goal will be to understand the underlying neural network, and thus to link different levels of analyzing the brain: from the single nerve-cell level, through the level of the neural-network, to the level of the behavior of the whole organism.
