  • Prof. Eran Oded Ofek | link for homepage

    Department of Particle Physics and Astrophysics
    PhD position

    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.

    PhD position

    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.
