Postdoc (toxin/effector biology and plant-microbe interactions): Israel
The Levy lab at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is looking for a postdoc to join the team to study toxin/effector biology and plant-microbe interactions.
The Levy lab:
The lab is located in Rehovot, a nice university town 30-40 mins from Tel Aviv (not located in Jerusalem although it is part of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem). We speak English in the lab.
We combine computational and molecular microbiology and we are mainly interested in discovering and understanding the genetic basis of bacterial interactions with plants or microbes.
The funding will be through the Azrieli International Postdoctoral Fellowships program. Candidates who have received or will receive their PhD degrees at a recognized university in the following countries may apply: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK.
The value of the Fellowship is approximately € 47,000 (ILS 188,000) per year, including funds reserved for research and travel. This is a very generous fellowship for the cost of living in Israel. Much more than the average PD salary.
