The Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel, topped the Scientist's list of the best places in the world to work in academia.
A Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Professor David Wallach at the Department of Biological Chemistry at the Weizmann Institute. The laboratory studies physiological and pathological cellular functions regulated by cytokines of the TNF family, and signaling mechanisms activated by these ligands. Modulation of autophagic mechanisms by ligands of the TNF family contribute to tissue remodeling in normal development, in recovery from injury, and in pathological derangement of the function of the skin, heart, kidney, lung, intestine and other tissues. The project aims at discovering novel molecular mechanisms contributing to these important processes. This well-funded project is conducted as a joint effort with the laboratory of Professor Zvulun Elazar of the same Institute that studies mechanisms of intracellular trafficking and of membrane dynamics, with special emphasis on the mechanisms of autophagy. Highly motivated candidates that have completed their PhD study within the last year, with strong background in molecular and cellular biology and high grade of independence in their work should submit their CV, and contact information of three references, to Professor David Wallach at eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%64%2e%77%61%6c%6c%61%63%68%40%77%65%69%7a%6d%61%6e%6e%2e%61%63%2e%69%6c%22%3e%64%2e%77%61%6c%6c%61%63%68%40%77%65%69%7a%6d%61%6e%6e%2e%61%63%2e%69%6c%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))
