Postdoc Positions at Zuckerman Labs
Have a look at the fantastic video abstract of the lab and our research: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmRfY_sTs98
This genome-to-phenotype platform includes a sequenced genome, CRISPR/Cas9-based genome editing, and mutant fish for many aging- and disease-relates genes.
Using state-of-the-art genome engineering, in-vivo imaging, single-cell, and computational approaches, the Harel lab is exploring fundamental questions in aging biology, such as why is aging such a strong driver of disease? And what is the molecular basis behind the outstanding diversity of vertebrate lifespan (which can reach up to 1000-fold differences between vertebrates).
Located @ the beautiful Giv’at Ram campus (HUJI), we are looking for highly motivated graduate students and postdocs interested in cutting-edge aging research. Have a look at our outstanding lab members, and recent activities.
Required elements for research-based postdoc applications

Required elements for research-based postdoc applications:
This is an opportunity for a talented and self-motivated structural biologist to undertake structural studies of macromolecular complexes through cryo-EM and cryo-ET. Applicants should have prior experience in biochemistry (protein purification) and structural biology (crystallography and/or cryo-EM). Cryo-ET and cell culture work will be an advantage.
