Closing Date: 1 July 2023
Fully-funded PhD and Postdoc positions are available in The Zaidel-Bar Lab to study the regulation of the cytoskeleton during cell and tissue morphogenesis. We invite highly motivated students to apply.
The lab takes a multi-scale approach from single proteins to the organism and system level, using a variety of cutting-edge technologies, most notably advanced microscopy, both in organoids and in the nematode C. elegans. Its goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms cells and tissues employ to change shape, migrate, sense, and generate mechanical forces that are essential for embryonic development and go awry in many diseases.
The lab welcomes outstanding international students with a degree in life sciences or in quantitative sciences, with a passion for research and interest in the cytoskeleton. The lab provides full fellowships for all students and housing on campus is an option. Lectures and courses are in English. Ph.D. studies usually last 4 years. Postdocs will be hired on a yearly contract up to 5 years.
The Zaidel-Bar lab is located in Tel-Aviv University, which is the leading interdisciplinary research and teaching university in Israel. Importantly, the scientific environment is dynamic and collaborative, with state of the art facilities, and students will have numerous opportunities to meet, learn from, and collaborate with excellent scientists.
Tel-Aviv is the cultural and commercial heart of Israel. Situated on a beautiful coast of the Mediterranean Sea, it is a fun, young city that never sleeps, with great food and weather.
