Job Description

We are offering a three year project focusing on identification of new targets for neurodegenerative diseases. The position will be part of a large scale international consortium bringing together academia and industry, allowing the fellow exposure to diverse cutting edge techniques and science.  The major focus would be on assessing neuronal metabolism and bioelectrical activity in human IPSC disease models.

The position will require the deployment of variety of techniques such as: fluorescent high content microscopy, cellular respiration analysis molecular biology electrophysiology and more. 

Job requirements  

  • PhD degree from a leading institution
  • Good publication record
  • Previous hands on experience with induced pluripotent stem cells, preferably with neuronal cells
  • Expertise in mitochondria related assays (including sea horse) is significant advantage
  • Background in neurobiology

The work will be done in the pharmacology laboratory (Netanya, Israel). The fellow will have full access and support from a team of preclinical experts including cellular pharmacology, in vivo pharmacology, ADME, toxicology and all other industrial discovery and product development infrastructure and know-how.
