The Department of Cognitive Sciences and The Faculty of Medicine at The Hebrew University – Joint Tenure-Track Position

Brain research at the Hebrew University deals with a wide range of topics that often share common aspects: psychology, cognition, neural networks, development, systems neurobiology, clinical neurobiology. Several methodological breakthroughs such as the development of genetic methods, advanced imaging and microscopy methods in various organisms and in humans, have opened new horizons in brain research. Among them are such topics as the study of the computational, genetic, cellular and systems-level mechanisms underlying cognitive processes in both health and disease. The department of cognitive sciences and the faculty of medicine wish to cultivate interdisciplinary research in collaboration between two key hubs of brain research at the university. We are confident that this collaboration will constitute a new and unique hub in Israeli brain research that will attract outstanding new researchers and students and generate a thriving academic environment.
Brain research at the Faculty of Medicine spans different aspects of nervous system function in both health and disease: aging, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, spinal injuries, neuroregeneration, motor control, pain, addiction, vision, olfaction, social behavior, synaptic transmission, cellular neurobiology and nervous system development. To understand the function of the neural networks that regulate sense and response in health and disease, brain researchers at the faculty use different biological models including worms, flies, zebra fish, chicks, rodents and humans.
Research at the Cognitive Sciences department is concerned with the study of cognitive mechanisms, e.g., information representation and processing, perception, learning and decision-making and language. To this end, scientists at the department study philosophical, social, computational and neurological aspects of these processes and integrate between the following disciplines: psychology, philosophy, linguistics, computer sciences and neurobiology.
Applicants should hold a PhD or MD degree. The Faculty will consider applicants that have demonstrated excellence and creativity during their doctoral and postdoctoral training. Successful applicants are expected to carry out independent competitive research programs and contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching.

The Faculty of Medicine Open Academic Positions:

* Academic Appointment in the Practical Associate Track in half position

The Faculty of Medicine of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem wishes to recruit a virologist at a level of assistant or associate professor (tenure track) or a full professor (tenure) to the 2020-2021 academic year.  

Considering the great challenges of viral epidemics, the Hebrew University and Faculty of Medicine decided to give virology research a high priority and build a modern infrastructure for virus research, including a state of the art high biosafety facility for cell and animal research (BSL3 and ABSL3 laboratories). The appointed faculty member is expected to serve as the director of the new facility. In addition, she/he will be provided with a laboratory space and a comparative start-up package.   
Candidates holding MD, PhD or both degrees who run highly competitive research programs in the field of virology are encouraged to apply. Physician-researchers, who wish to have a combined clinical and laboratory research career are also very welcome.  
We are looking for candidates that have a profound knowledge, broad view, and proven achievements in virology research, which can build and lead an independent research group and are committed to tutor students in all levels within the study programs of the School of Medicine.

The Faculty of Medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is inviting applications from leading candidates for tenure track (Lecturer or Senior Lecturer - equivalent to Assistant Professor) positions to the 2021-2022 academic year.

The research fields of interest include:

School of Medicine

All Bio-Medical disciplines, including (but not limited to): Developmental Biology, Systems Biology and Bioinformatics, Neurobiology, Cellular and molecular biology, Biochemistry and Metabolism, Physiology, Immunology and Microbiology (in particular Virology and Parasitology).
This year, the faculty of medicine wishes to enhance its leadership in the fields of microbiology (in particular Virology and Parasitology), cancer research and immunology and encourages outstanding scientists in these fields to apply for a tenure track position.

School of Pharmacy

Pharmaceutical Sciences, Drug Delivery, Drug Targeting, Nano-Medicine, Physical Pharmacy, Drug Research and Medicinal Chemistry. The School of Pharmacy will also issue a specific call in the field of chemistry.
Applicants should hold a PhD or MD degree. The Faculty will consider applicants that have demonstrated excellence and creativity during their doctoral and postdoctoral training. Successful applicants are expected to carry out independent competitive research programs and participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching.
The evaluation of the applicants/candidates for the academic position is based on innovation and excellence in drug related research, commitment to mentoring and teaching and mainly on the applicant's potential to lead an original and breakthrough research.
We are looking for candidates that have a profound knowledge, broad view, and proven achievements in research, which can build and lead an independent research group and are committed to tutor students in all levels within the study programs of the School of Pharmacy (B. Pharm, MSc. and Ph.D).
The first screening will be held in the Faculty's Search Committee. The Faculty's Search Committee will select a short list of applicants that will be invited for an interview at the Faculty.

Please note:

  • We realize that the COVID-19 pandemia affected the progress rate of many potential candidates. Therefore, to address this exceptional situation we are open to receive applications from candidates that are in the final stages of completing their postdoctoral projects but do not yet have an accepted manuscript. Typically, this will entail a manuscript in revision. In this situation the candidate will be asked to send us a manuscript, preferably together with the editor and referee notes. Fruitful completion of the postdoc project is important for both the candidate and our faculty. Potential ways towards this will be discussed with successful candidates. These could include among other options:
    1. Continuing the post-doc studies abroad for another year;
    2. Continuing the post-doc project at our faculty in a host lab, in collaboration with the current mentor, as an academic staff member at HUJI (in this case the first year will not be counted for tenure and promotion purposes). This program will be tailored personally for each successful candidate and will be limited to select few candidates.
  • Applications for academic positions at the Hebrew university are faculty based. Additional calls for applications are open for other faculties including agriculture, computer science, life science, neurobiology and more. ​​​​​​​​

The Faculty of Medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is inviting leading candidates for an academic position as the Director of the Center for Medical Education, to the 2021-2022 academic year.​
