    The Large Array Survey Telescope (LAST) is an under construction
    modular and cost-effective survey telescope.
    The telescope will be composed of 48 telescopes, each of  28 cm diameter.
    The array can act either as a 28 cm telescope, with a huge field of view of 355 deg^2,
    or as a single 1.9 m telescope with a 7.4 deg^2 field of view.
    When completed, in March 2021, it will be the survey telescope with
    the highest grasp (observable volume per unit time) in the world.
    Indeed, its grasp will be about four times that of the best available system today.
    LAST science cases include:
    (1) Searching for optical counterparts of gravitational wave events in order to study the physics of these explosions and the production of the heaviest elements in the Universe;
    (2) The early detection of supernovae and transients; a search for rare short-duration events powered by radioactivity; and a search for shock cooling events that enable us to study supernova progenitors;
    (3) Developing methods for high precision photometry from the ground,
    that are critical for exoplanets detection;
    (4) A search for the optical counterparts of short-duration gamma-ray bursts
    in order to test the hypothesis that these are related to Neutron Stars merger events; and more.
    We are looking for M.Sc./Ph.D. students and postdocs that will lead
    some of these science topics with LAST.

    Detecting unseen markers for disease using machine-learning image analysis:

    inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a serious clinical condition affecting millions around the world. It is evident that some properties of the disease manifest before the onset of clinical symptoms. To date, these properties where shown on the molecular scale. To use them for clinical diagnosis would require adapting them to existing medical imaging methods.

    In this project, we intend to detect the earliest signs of IBD in colonoscopy. Therefore, a machine learning solution capable to find the pre-clinical stages of inflammation through image analysis is required. This would include developing the algorithm and training it, while also tagging the training dataset.

    The work will be performed in collaboration with the groups of Prof. Irit Sagi and Yonina Eldar.

    The study of quantum information unveils new possibilities for remarkable forms of computation, communication, and cryptography. We study the fundamental aspects of quantum entanglement and the unique ways of using them in quantum information processing tasks, such as quantum cryptography. We work on the theory side, utilizing insights and tools from the study of quantum physics, theoretical computer science and classical information theory. 

    The positions are relevant for students with physics, computer science and/or mathematics background. 
    Students from the Physics Department-- no need to come with background in computer science.

    Chameleons, copepods, fish, and many other organisms, use organic crystals for an astonishing variety of optical functions. These crystals are formed by specialized cells, in which remarkable control over crystal shape, size, and assembly is obtained using strategies that are beyond the state of the art in materials science. While these cells were identified many years ago, almost nothing is known about their biology, particularly the cellular processes involved in organic crystal formation. We use biological tools and physical and chemical methodologies to study the processes organisms use to produce either optically functional or pathological bio-organic crystals. Our primary model organisms for these studies are zebrafish and medaka.
