We are seeking an intellectually-driven MSc/PhD student (or postdoc) for an interdisciplinary research on emergent adaptation in an artificial host-microbiome system.

The research aims to address a fundamental question of multicellular organization by constructing and studying an unusual model system that is uniquely designed for this purpose. The research is expected to combine different fields, including engineering, microbiology, genomics and bioinformatics.

The student is expected to:

•  Be creative, resourceful and capable of carrying out research in uncharted territories

•  Be responsible, motivated and committed to the research

Wet-lab experience and background in exact sciences would be an advantage.

Interested students are welcome to contact Yoav Soen at yoavs@weizmann.ac.il
