*Post Doc and PhD positions at the Brain Attention and Time Lab, at the
Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel*

Full-time post-doc and Ph.D. positions are available in the Brain Attention
and Time Lab <http://www.landaulab.com/publications.html> of Dr. Ayelet N.
Landau at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The initial appointment will
be for one year with the option to renew annually up to 4 years. Preferred
starting date: September 2019

The lab’s core research areas include the guidance of attention and
temporal processing and their underlying neural mechanisms. As cognitive
neuroscientists, we construe models of cognition and examine them using
both in perception and in physiology. The positions are part of two
externally funded projects focused on:

(1)    Fluctuations in attention and rhythmic attentional sampling.

(2)    Neural mechanisms of interval timing.

Both research programs examine the role of brain rhythms in cognition. In
the lab, we measure perception in different modalities (tactile, visual and
auditory) together with non-invasive and invasively recorded physiology
(MEG/EEG and ECoG) and eye-tracking. You can read about the research and
the lab here <http://www.landaulab.com/>.

We are seeking a highly qualified postdoc with a doctorate in a relevant
field (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience, and Cognitive Science, Computational
modeling) and shared interests in the core research areas described
above. The researcher, ideally, should have extensive experience with
EEG/MEG methodology and signal processing. Experience with other techniques
- such as fMRI, computational modeling, etc. - is also welcome but not

In addition, we are looking for strong candidates for a funded PhD
studentship. The Hebrew University offers several training opportunities in
different departments. The successful candidate will be competitive for one
of the flagship programs (psychology, cognitive science or neuroscience)
and will have demonstrated experience in research from their post-bac or BA
education (as research assistants or honors students). Knowledge of
programming is an advantage.

For both positions, a passion and a commitment to science, strong social
skills, troubleshooting skills, and fast learning abilities are a

Interested candidates should send a CV, a brief statement of research
interests, and the names and contact details of two academic references to
ayelet.landau at huji.ac.il March 15th. Applications will be considered until
the positions are filled.

We look forward to hearing from you!
