The links between chromatin organization, microtubule dynamics and tumor cell migration


   Department of Molecular Biology

   Applications accepted all year round  Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

We are seeking for a highly motivated PhD students to study the links between chromatin organization and microtubule dynamics or/and tumor cell migration. Previously we identified the importance of global chromatin condensation for migration of melanoma cells (http://gabigerlitz.wix.com/gerlitz , https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fcell.2020.00394/full ) and new links between chromatin and microtubule dynamics (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00018-012-1200-5 , https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.05.15.444210v1.full ). 

Our goal is to understand the changes in chromatin structure in migrating cells and the molecular mechanisms by which they support cell migration and changes in microtubule dynamics.

Highly motivated candidates with a successful MSc degree in biological sciences are encouraged to apply. Successful candidate should be fluent in English with experience in molecular biology or cell biology techniques. Some knowledge in bioinformatic techniques is a plus but not a prerequisite.

Ariel University offers a collaborative and friendly research environment. PhD students are offered a full 4 years competitive scholarship.
