Post-doctoral research associate in the field of bone-muscle imaging of animal models.

Post-doctoral position is now available at the Faculty of Medicine of Bar-Ilan University in the Galilee, for scientists interested in perusing interdisciplinary research in the field of genetics of mammalian musculoskeleton.
Our group is performing an extensive research of human skeletal diseases using human patient data and animal models, including murine and piscine (zebrafish). The research is performed in collaboration with the US-based colleagues; there is a possibility of training abroad.

In particular, the candidate will:
– perform musculoskeletal system imaging of the animal locomotor systems, analyze and integrate in-vivo imaging of micro-CT and micro-PET scans in order to explore bone-muscle interactions in health and disease.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in radiation based preclinical imaging modalities such as micro-CT and micro-PET.
Post-doctoral position is for 2 years, with an option for extended year.

The position is at the Faculty of Medicine of BIU in Safed, in the Galilee region of Israel.
