Bar-Ilan University (BIU)

Seeking for Postdoctoral Scholars and Ph.D. Students

Bar-Ilan University

Safed, Israel

Applications are invited for excellent and highly motivated Postdoctoral Scholars and Ph.D. Students to join.

We are young and vibrant faculty (est. 2011) located in the beautiful hills of Galilee. Our state-of-the-art infrastructure includes cutting edge genomic center and top-notch core facility (imaging, cytometry, biochemistry, microscopy and macromolecules imaging). The faculty comprises disease-oriented centers that conduct excellent multi-disciplinary research that addresses the current biggest challenges in biomedical science.

Position available in the following research fields:
1. Structural Biology of Infectious Diseases –
Virus assembly, entry and evasion are main target processes in viral infection that involve macromolecular assemblies and interactions. We aim to decipher the molecular mechanisms of various viral infection processes at the atomic resolution, using x-ray crystallography, integrative structural biology, biophysics and biochemistry. Such multidisciplinary research will produce in-depth understanding of viral infection, leading to the development of novel countermeasures strategies against various pathogens.

2. Genomic instability, Cancer genomics, and bioinformatic-
Our lab combines sensitive, high-throughput, genomic assays, and computational modeling, in order to crack the genomic code that drives genome instability in different cell-types, pathologies and conditions, and to grasp the landscape of DNA lesions in cancer.

3. Molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuronal diseases-
We aim to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which complexes are assembled and regulated in time and space to achieve an accurate neuronal response. We generate high-resolution large-scale mosaic imaging maps to identify unique and consistent patterns of cellular and subcellular protein distribution. This information is compared to a disease state in animal models and tissues of patients diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease. Studies of protein complexes at the atomic level resolution by X-ray crystallography allow us to understand protein-protein interactions in health and disease.
