PhD Studentship in developmental mechano-biology: The role of the actomyosin cytoskeleton in skin development.
Posted by Chen Luxenburg, on 23 January 2017
Closing Date: 15 March 2021
The group of Chen Luxenburg at the Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University invites applications for PhD student position.
Our laboratory is looking for excellent and highly motivated PhD students to study the role of the actomyosin cytoskeleton in skin development. Our goal is to understand how cytoskeleton derived signals regulate stem cell ability to create the skin epidermis during development, maintain it in the adult and repair it upon wounding. On top of molecular biology, tissue culture, advanced microscopy and mouse work we utilize state of the art technology that allows us to rapidly manipulate the function of any gene of interest in epidermal stem cells in utero. Several exciting projects are available for the successful candidates.
We offer state of the art laboratory with dynamic and international atmosphere and full financial support (tuition and stipend)
Candidates should hold Master’s degree in Biology/Life-sciences or related field. Preference will be given to candidates familiar with tissue culture techniques, microscopy and mouse work.
