*Postdoctoral Position*
University of Arizona and University of Haifa

The Computational and Experimental Neuroscience Laboratory is looking to 
fill a position for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The research project 
is geared towards understanding the role of hippocampal replay in 
spatial navigation and memory consolidation during sleep. The techniques 
used include high density electrophysiology in the behaving rat, 
neuropharmacology, optogenetics and computational modeling. The project 
is multidisciplinary and involves collaborations with research teams in 
the USA and France (Univ. South Florida Tampa, INSERM Lyon France, 
Harvard Univ MA, UCSD, UCR and Salk, California). Good communication 
skills are necessary. This is a joint position between the University of 
Haifa (Israel) and the University of Arizona (Tucson, USA). The 
successful candidate will be expected to spend part of his/her time in 
the USA and in Israel. Basic knowledge of Hebrew will be helpful.

Applicants with a subset of the following skill set are strongly 
encouraged to apply:

    - Scientific expertise or interests in hippocampus and/or
    prefrontal-cortex
    - Electrophysiology (in vivo chronic behaving, or in vitro)
    - Behavioral Neuroscience (rat training/testing)
    - General laboratory skills (e.g. histology, surgery)
    - Matlab and/or NEURON programming and spike-data analyses

Applicant should send a cover letter, CV and the names of at least 2 
references to Dr. Jean-Marc Fellous (fellous at email.arizona.edu). 
Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. The search is 
ongoing and is projected to be completed by November 30th, 2014.
