The laboratory of Dr. Roi Avraham, at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, is looking for a PhD student position to study microbial manipulation of host immune response.

Encounters between immune cells and invading bacteria involves multiple host cell types with different attack strategies and counter-defenses by the bacteria. We are applying state-of-the-art single cell RNA-seq analysis of human PBMCs in response to intracellular bacterial infection, in order to build a fundamental understanding of how individual interactions between a bacterium and a host cell drive the outcome of infection. The project will revolve around understanding how Salmonella subvert immunity within the context of its host macrophage, to shed light on possible non-cell autonomous effects of internalized Salmonella to manipulate host immune responses.

The candidate must be highly motivated, enthusiastic, and an efficient researcher with a Msc in the relevant discipline, preferably microbiology. The applicant must be capable of working in a team, as well as to individually lead a research project. Excellent communication skills in both written and spoken English are required.
