Bioinformatics Post-Doctoral Positions

We are looking for independent, dedicated Bioinformaticians as post-doctorate fellows for a project aimed at revealing the mechanisms of cancer-resistance and anti-cancer activity of the hypoxia-tolerant (down to 3% O2), oxidative-stress adapted, long lived (>20 Years) subterranean, blind mole-rat,Spalax (if you wish to have a clue you can watch the links down in my signature.

More info in the attached adv and at: Malik et al, 2012, BMC genomics – on differential expression of cancer- and hypoxia-related genes in Spalax ; Fang et al, Nat Com, 2014 on the Genome organization of Spalax; Manov et al., 2013, BMC biology 11, 91 on the cancer-resistance and anti-cancer activity of Spalax.

We expect experienced candidates with a proven excellent expertise and knowhow to independently handle raw output data of RNA-seq / miR seq/ Genomic,

analyze it and can interpret intelligently the relevant biological background. Accordingly, background in statistics, programming and scripting is required

(e.g., experience and knowledge in tools like Linux clusters, R, mysql, Matlab, perl, python, etc.), with a respected record of relevant publications (including 1st authorship).

Applicants that have the specified qualifications and can fulfill our  expectations – Please submit an extended CV and bibliography, summary of past accomplishments, list of  publications ( importantly 1st authorship in peer-reviewed journal with a respected impact factor) , and contact information of 3 referees to Dr. Aaron Avivi ( AND Dr. Imad Shams (
