Second year research project

We are interested in initiating a research project focusing on the influence of locomotion on sensory processing and its underlying neuronal circuits in relation to visualy-driven collective behavior in insects

Lab Manger position

A young dynamic neuroscience lab (Tel Aviv University) seeks a talented lab manager.

 The Segev Barak Lab studies the neurobiology of drug and alcohol addiction. The lab combines molecular biology approaches with advanced behavioral and imaging studies to investigate the molecular and neural mechanisms of drug reinforcement, learning and memory. See- http://baraklab.tau.ac.il

Post-Doc/PhD position in bioinformatics study of RNA editing in the brain

Published by: Eli Eisenberg

E-mail address: elieis@post.tau.ac.il

I am looking for a talented computational biologist for a postdoctoral/doctoral position in my lab.
The main focus of my bioinformatic group is RNA editing, a process upon which mRNA is enzymatically modified from its genomic blueprint. I am looking for an excellent candidate to take part in an exciting new project, where we study the extent of this phenomenon in cephalopods. As we've shown in recent years (see attached paper, for example), these species utilize RNA editing to an unprecedented level – over half of their proteome may be modified by editing!

We utilize extensive RNA-seq experiments, and work in a close collaboration with a leading experimental group in the US, which study the physiological implication of the editing events, in particular their effect of the organism neurobiology. It is possible to combine experimental work (in the US lab) with the computational project.

Please email me if you're interested.

Join us to understand the neuronal and molecular basis of severe epilepsy and autism

Published by: Moran Rubinstein

E-mail address: moranrub@post.tau.ac.il

The tremendous advancement in genetic studies helped to identify the involvement of many genes in the etiology of autism and epilepsy. Indeed, mutations in multiple types of voltage-gated sodium channels (Nav) channels were identified in patients. In order to understand how genetic mutations in ion channels lead to altered behavior, we use mouse models that mimic the human genetic mutation and explore perturbations of neuronal function on cellular, network and behaving animal levels.

Advanced MRI methods for the assessment of the human cerebral vascular system

Published by: Dafna Ben Bashat

E-mail address: dafnab@tlvmc.gov.il

Accurate and comprehensive assessment of the cerebrovascular system is highly important in clinical setup, for the assessment of tissue integrity and disease severity; identification of tissue at risk; and prediction of treatment response. Characterization of the cerebrovascular system includes quantitative measures such as blood flow and perfusion, assessment of the presence, source and potency of collaterals, and imaging and assessment of perfusion in the different vascular territories. Using MRI, several methods have been proposed to indirectly measure various vascular parameters, yet many of these methods still rely on qualitative assessment and require the input of an expert neuro-radiologist when applied in clinical practice.
The project will focus on developing and applying methods for quantitative assessment of the brain's vascular system in healthy controls and in patients with vascular pathologies.
The research is being conducted at the Functional Brain Center at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center the supervision of Dr Dafna Ben Bashat.
