About: Ronenz

Biography:
Dr Zaidel-Bar obtained his Ph.D. working with Prof Benny Geiger (Weizmann Institute of Science) on the role of force in regulating cell-matrix adhesion. His work first focused on single proteins and evolved to encompass the entire adhesome network. In his Postdoctoral training with Prof Jeff Hardin (University of Wisconsin – Madison) Dr Zaidel-Bar employed the genetic model organism C. elegans for the study of cell-cell adhesion during development. Dr Zaidel-Bar was awarded the Singapore National Research Foundation Fellowship and since 2010 is a principal investigator at the Mechanobiology Institute in Singapore. His group studies the regulation of cadherin adhesion and the cytoskeleton during morphogenesis, taking a multi-scale approach from the molecular level to animal development.

MSc/PhD and postdoc positions available in the Zaidel-Bar lab, Tel-Aviv University

Posted by on November 27th, 2018

MSc/PhD and postdoc positions available in the Zaidel-Bar Cellular and Tissue Morphogenesis Lab. We study the regulation of the cytoskeleton from single proteins to the entire organism and system levels, using multiple approaches (including bioinformatics, genetics, biochemistry and live imaging) to understand how cells and tissues change shape, move, sense, and generate forces (for more[…]

PhD and Postdoc positions – Zaidel-Bar group in Tel-Aviv University

Posted by on August 31st, 2017

The Zaidel-Bar group studies Actomyosin Contractility and Tissue Morphogenesis from single proteins to the organism level. After seven successful years at the Mechanobiology Institute in Singapore the lab is moving to Tel-Aviv university in October 2017. This is an exciting opportunity for highly motivated young scientists to join as MSc, PhD or Postdoctoral fellows. Tel-Aviv University is a top research and teaching[…]

Postdoc Position in Cytoskeleton and Morphogenesis Lab

Posted by on August 26th, 2015

The Zaidel-Bar lab (http://CellAdhesionLab.com) has an open position for a postdoctoral fellow to study the regulation of the actomyosin cortex in mammalian cells and C. elegans embryos. The lab is part of the Mechanobiology Institute (http://mbi.nus.edu.sg), which is the world’s leading center for interdisciplinary research in tissue, cellular and molecular mechanics.   Qualifications: PhD in[…]
