PhD Studentship in Cell and Developmental Biology: Cytoskeletal Regulation of Epidermal Stem Cells

Posted by , on 25 May 2020

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

The group of Chen Luxenburg at the Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, invites applications for a PhD student position.


Our laboratory is looking for excellent and highly motivated PhD students to study the role of the actin 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 successful candidates.


We offer state of the art laboratory with a dynamic and international atmosphere and full financial support (tuition and stipend)


Candidates should hold a Master’s degree in Biology/Life-sciences or related fields.

Interested candidates should email their CV and a brief paragraph describing their research experience and career plans to Chen Luxenburg  (
