Postdoctoral Opportunities

Postdoc opportunity in the Omer lab: “Deciphering the neural code for space & territoriality"

How does our brain integrate coding of space with social codes to perceive a territory? The Omer lab is hiring excellent postdocs fellows & graduate students to join an ERC-Synergy funded research.  Our goal is to understanding how neural spatial codes for self and others in the hippocampus are modulated by the neuromodulator Oxytocin and compute territorial behavior. We use wireless recording technology in freely behaving marmoset monkeys and develop mechanistic data-driven models that aim to map behavioral computations onto neural activity.

Our lab is interdisciplinary and excellent students from fields of Neuroscience, Physics, Engineering, Biology, Computer-science and Psychology are welcome to apply. Please send your CV, course transcripts, and thesis (if relevant) to


Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a neuroscience-related discipline.  Applicants with additional training in in-vivo electrophysiology, circuit manipulation technologies, and/or automated behavioral analysis are particularly encouraged to apply. Strong interpersonal, communication, and critical thinking skills, as well as a dedication to teamwork and collaboration, are qualities sought in any new addition to the lab.

Further details:

Application review will be ongoing until the position is filled. For consideration, interested candidates must e-mail their CV and a statement of research interests to Dr. David Omer (  Reference letters will be requested upon follow-up.
