Postdoc position at the Asher Lab | Circadian exercise: training & performance

Website Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel

Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel

The Position | In the last 7 years we studied the cross talk between metabolism and circadian rhythms, leading us to venture into other fields, like exercise biology. Some exciting questions, both related to physiology and molecular mechanism, that stem from our recent publications are now under deep investigation. If you decide to join us, you will lead a project and develop your own line of research in topics involving circadian rhythms, exercise performance, exercise training, and the influence of chronotype feeding, and hypoxia.

What expertise you need? | You are not expected to be an expert in either the circadian field or exercise biology. On the country, a fresh perspective is always welcome in our lab! It is recommended to have some know-how in either animal physiology or molecular biology. We will take care of filling in the missing gaps, including the relevant techniques and literature.

Why choose us? | The Asher lab has been a leader in the field of circadian clocks and metabolism in animals as well as cell culture, using molecular, genetic and bioinformatic approaches. We work in a friendly and a collaborative spirit. We are equipped with relevant tools and genetic models to ensure rapid progress of the projects. The Weizmann Institute is one of the top research institutes in the world. High-end research facilities and services are available on campus. The Weizmann Institute attracts many students and postdocs from around the globe, and has a very strong international community as a result. It is located minutes away from the vibrant life of Tel-Aviv.
