A postdoc position funded up to 3 years is available in the Moran lab at Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. This position will be funded by a NSF-BSF project aimed to shed new light on the evolution of antiviral systems and host-virus co-adaptation between different habitats. The specific project will include collaboration with a group based in the United States and annual visits of a few weeks to the collaborating lab to join their field work. In our lab we use the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis as a model and employ a diverse array of biochemical, genetic, microscopic and computational approaches to answer our questions. The fellowship associated with the project is at the high end of Israeli standards and the successful candidates will also receive additional funds for attending relevant international workshops and conferences on a yearly basis for career development.
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI) is one of Israel’s premier universities. HUJI has been ranked among the top universities in the world in two comprehensive surveys conducted by The Times Higher Education Supplement of London and Shanghai University. The host lab is located at the Natural Sciences campus at Givat Ram, where a wide range of available technical services and facilities enable the cutting-edge research in various fields of Life Sciences. Our department is highly international and the working language in the lab is English.
The suitable candidate should have a Ph.D. in life sciences or related field and experience in standard biochemical and molecular biology techniques. Training in RNA biochemistry, molecular evolution and/or molecular ecology is desirable. Having prior experience in microscopy and/or computational analysis of high throughput sequencing data is an advantage.
