I was wondering if it is possible to change the position of the ylabel. I would like to move it down (as suggested on the attached figure) to match it better with the yticks.

If you have the handle of ylabel, then you can modify its position using the 'position' property. For example
label_h = ylabel('myLabel');
label_h.Position(1) = 2040; % change horizontal position of ylabel
label_h.Position(2) = 0; % change vertical position of ylabel
Experiment with these values until you get the required location.

You can use ytickangle
Recent versions of MATLAB automatically rotate the angle for clarity.
