Research Opportunities

POSTDOC POSITION AVAILABLE Glickman Laboratory - 28.5.2024

Glickman Laboratory

On an ERC-Funded project:
The origin and impact of impaired ubiquitin signaling in the degeneration of neurons

starting 1 November 2024
Faculty of Biology, Technion Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.


The Glickman lab (Glickman Lab | Department of Biology, Technion) is looking for postdoctoral fellows. We study Protein Turnover in Alzheimer’s disease, ageing and response to mitochondria dysfunction. We have adapted a 3-D human neuronal network to study the role of proteasome, deubiquitinating enzymes, and ubiquitin signaling in general in neurodegeneration. The ERC-funded research Ubi-Wan will lay the foundation for exploring the involvement of a ubiquitin signaling in neurodegeneration with an emphasis on Alzheimer’s disease. The project includes building Alzheimer’s disease models utilizing human Stem cells and iPSCs.


Your tasks:

  • Design and execute research projects
  • Organize and troubleshoot your work independently
  • Communicate results and experiences with the team in a transparent and professional manner
  • Apply for Postdoctoral fellowships or external funding


Your profile:

  • A Ph.D. in biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, neurobiology, or a related field
  • Strong background in TC work, specifically working with stem cells and iPSCs
  • Experience in complex neuronal models, including organoids
  • Strong background in microscopy
  • Highly motivated, creative, dedicated, and critical thinker
  • Ability to clearly communicate research results to other lab members and scientists
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills in English
  • Proactive, flexible, and problem-solving attitude


What we offer:

  • An intellectually diverse academic position within a dynamic research environment, offering numerous avenues for expanding your knowledge and fostering an environment that values excellence, professionalism, and collaborative teamwork.
  • A full-time contract of up to 5 years on the recently awarded ERC Advanced project Ubi-Wan
  • The earliest possible start date is November 2024
  • Salary will be in line with the university salary scale for postdoctoral researchers


How to Apply: Please send your CV, letter of intent, names, and addresses of references to Prof. Michael Glickman, E-mail:

Looking for a laboratory for a master-doctorate-project? ...

An opportunity has opened up in Benny Horwitz’s laboratory to join a fascinating study with important practical implications, on the effect of the host plant (corn) genotype on the development of disease caused by a fungus (southern corn leaf blight). Our research methods include the use of molecular-genetic approaches and the development of new methods for three-dimensional imaging with the most sophisticated microscopes (confocal, light sheet, spinning disk).

For details, please contact Prof. Benny Horwitz by mail:

Open positions for MSc and PhD students in the Levy lab


We study how neuronal networks process information to drive behavior, at the molecular, physiological and computational levels. For that, we investigate mechanisms underlying sensation, decision making, learning and memory in the simple nervous system of C. elegans nematodes. Our research combines mathematical modeling, systems biology, genetics and cutting-edge experimental tools, including optogenetics, advanced microscopy, and microfluidic devices for analysis of behavior and neuronal activity in free-moving animals.

We are looking for highly motivated students with background in biology or exact sciences. Strong background in neuroscience, computational skills or experience in the techniques mentioned above is an advantage. Applicants should send a CV with a brief statement of interest to
