Open position is available in the Levy lab at the Faculty of Biology, Technion–Israel Institute of Technology (https://sagilevy.net.technion.ac.il/).
In the Levy lab we study how neuronal networks process information to drive behavior at the molecular, physiological and computational levels. The PhD project will investigate mechanisms underlying decision making, learning or memory in the simple nervous system of C. elegans nematodes.
Research in our lab combines mathematical modeling, systems biology, genetics and cutting-edge experimental tools, including optogenetics, advanced microscopy, and microfluidic devices for analysis of behavior and neuronal activity in free-moving animals. This research project will allow the student to master some of these exciting approaches and techniques.
We are looking for a highly motivated student with background in biology or exact sciences. A strong background in neuroscience, computational skills or experience in the techniques mentioned above is an advantage.
Applications should be sent to [Email Address Removed] and include: (1) CV. (2) A brief statement of interest. (3) Contact information of up to three referees from whom we can ask for a recommendation letter.
