    Immunotherapy has sparked new hope for oncology in recent years, due to its remarkable ability to induce durable response in patients with metastatic cancer. It is therefore essential to accurately delineate the interactions of cancer cells with the immune system. The project will use multiomic tools including whole exome sequencing , RNAseq, ribosome profiling, proteomic, HLA-peptidomics and systems biology to decipher the genetic, neo-antigenic and immune landscape in melanoma. Followup functional and immunological analysis of  relevant genes and neoantigens will be conducted using novel mouse models.

  • Dr. Yuval Ronen | link for homepage

    Department of Condensed Matter Physics
    MSc position

    Our lab investigates quantum phenomena which focus on the interplay between correlations and topology. This intriguing interplay allows to develop unique realizations of non-abelian quasi-particles (qps) which are neither Boson nor Fermion-like. Among the phases which host these qps are the well-known fractional quantum Hall effect, topological superconductivity, and the recently emerging field of moire-superlattcies (twistronics). We are developing experiments in these arrowheads to unravel this intriguing physics.

    This line of research often utilizes quantum materials whose reduced dimensionality enhances quantum effects. We profit from the use of various van der Waals (vdW) materials (graphene, hBN, TMDs, etc.) as well as high-mobility two-dimensional GaAs electron gas, which are both grown in our department. Fabrication is performed in a state-of-the-art clean room facility, specially designed for vdW materials nanofabrication.

    These devices will be measured with transport techniques including quantum Hall interferometry, Josephson interferometry, capacitance measurements, thermal transport, and shot noise measurements. These measurements require high magnetic fields and low electron temperatures.
