    Postdoc position

    We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on a new and exciting project on lipid complexity. There are many more lipids in cells and in cell membranes than once thought and this complexity has significant ramifications for understanding both the roles of lipids in the origin of life and also in modern cell function. A position is available for an enthusiastic candidate to work on lipids in the origin of life, lipid fine-tuning, and functional studies of lipid complexity.

  • Dr. Yuval Ronen | link for homepage

    Department of Condensed Matter Physics
    Postdoc 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. Our lab will be equipped with an 8mK wet dilution refrigerator with a 20T magnet, a 7mK dry dilution with a 3D vector magnet, as well as a variable temperature cryostat.

    Funding is available for three years. Advantage for prior experience with: vdW materials, fabrication techniques, transport measurements and cryogenic systems.

    Interested candidates should send CV and list of publications to yuval.ronen@weizmann.ac.il

    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.
