OFFER DESCRIPTION 

The Ben-David lab is looking to hire experimental and computational postdocs for an ERC-funded project. The lab is located at the Department of Human Molecular Genetics & Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Israel.

Our lab studies cancer genetics. We focus on an under-studied trait of cancer, called aneuploidy — the presence of an abnormal number of chromosomes in cancer cells — and the potential of using this trait to target cancer cells and eliminate tumors. We combine experimental and computational approaches to uncover the basic biology underlying this hallmark of cancer, to track its origins and to uncover its cellular consequences. In addition, we are interested in improving and expanding the arsenal of cancer model systems, for basic research and cancer precision medicine.

 We have two open positions, for an experimental biologist and for a computational biologist.
