Max-Planck Hebrew University Center
Ph.D. students, post-docs and Junior Fellows Program in Brain Research
The Max Planck Society and the Hebrew University have established a new Center for Sensory Processing of the Brain in Action, which will support collaborative research between the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC) in Jerusalem and the Max Planck Institute (MPI) of Neurobiology in Martinsried (Munich). The Center's goal is to advance our understanding of the neural mechanisms of sensory processing in its behavioral context. Principal investigators of the Center are: On the Israeli side- Idan Segev (Director) – sensory processing in dendritic modules, Haim Sompolinsky –theory of neuronal circuits, Adi Mizrahi – sensory coding and plasticity in the mammalian brain. On the German side- Tobias Bonhoeffer (Director) – synaptic plasticity in the behaving brain, Alexander Borst – motion processing in the fly visual system, Bert Sakmann – cortical columns in vivo and in silico. For further information about the center see: http://elsc.huji.ac.il/max-planck
To meet its goals, the Center is seeking Ph.D. students and postdoc candidates who will perform a joint research among the teams mentioned above, as well as for candidates for a Junior Fellows Program. Each Junior Fellowship is a three-year position (renewable up to five years) for independent experimental and/or theoretical research.
The Junior Fellow will establish his/her research program either at ELSC (Jerusalem) and/or at the MPI (Martinsried). It should be within the broadly defined interest and context of the research groups mentioned above. Fellowships include in addition to a comfortable monthly compensation, budgets for (1) equipment, (2) the support of a graduate student, and (3) travel between the Israeli and German sites. Fellows are expected to facilitate the collaboration between the two institutions as well as to participate in video-conferenced seminars, periodic meetings, and joint advanced courses. They will be jointly mentored by Israeli and German Principal Investigators and will benefit from the excellent scientific and technical infrastructure, as well as the exciting intellectual atmosphere in ELSC and MPI.
Candidates must have advanced training in either experimental or computational neuroscience.
Interested candidates are invited to send their CV as well as a short research statement to Prof. Tobias Bonhoeffer (tobias.bonhoeffer at neuro.mpg.de) and to Prof. Idan Segev (idan at lobster.ls.huji.ac.il) in addition to soliciting three letters of reference to be sent to the above addresses.
