Positions

Note: Due to the multidisciplinary nature of scientific research, you may be interested in scanning the entire list of
rotations offered by scientists in all the faculties: chemistry, life sciences, physics, and mathematics/computer
science. There are for example, scientists in life sciences who are interested in rotation students in chemistry, and
scientists in physics who might supervise students in the life sciences. However, before beginning a rotation in an
area that is outside your own field of study, you must obtain the approval of the Head of the Board of Studies.

Research positions available in our department include:

The impact of senescent cells on stem cells and tissue regeneration in aging and age-related diseases
A Postdoctoral position to study the role of exosomes in breast cancer
A Postdoctoral position to study Tumor-Associated Macrophages-TNBC crosstalk
Receptor-tyrosine kinases (RTKs)-associated drug Resistance in TNBC subtypes
Looking for postdocs with computational or experimental background to study tumor biology
A. Involvment of p53 in the life of stem cells:wild type p53 versus mutant p53 B. Development of mutant p53 based cancer therapy.

Other positions available at the Weizmann Institute:

>> Undergraduate Summer Programs
>> Postdoctoral Fellowships
>> Visiting Professorships
>> Visiting Scientists

In addition to the above, PhD and postdoctoral positions are available with Igor Ulitsky's group. The Ulitsky lab will start operations in September 2013 and will study the biology of noncoding RNAs and their roles in gene regulation, with a particular focus on the recently emerging class of long intervening noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs). We will study modes of actions and functions of these RNAs, as well as their evolution and their roles in higher-order regulatory networks. To do so, we will use novel and existing techniques in genomics, systems biology, biochemistry and computational sequence analysis.

Candidates with background in computational or molecular biology are sought, and those with a multidisciplinary background, spanning both life sciences and computer sciences, are especially encouraged to apply. Among candidates with background in molecular biology, preference will be given to those with experience in molecular work with RNA, biochemical purifications, and/or studying mammalian stem cells in culture.

The starting date is flexible. Interested and highly motivated applicants should send their CV and brief description of research interests to ulitskyi@gmail.com. Informal inquiries are welcome.
