Join us to study how to shape the immune response in the CNS

The Laboratory of Lior Mayo  

Is looking for MSc, PhD, PostDoc, Project student

Position title

What role do glial cells play in autoimmunity? How do different cells behave during neuroinflammation? How does cellular metabolism regulate immune potential? Do lipids shape the immune response? How do peripheral immune cells, glial cells, and neurons communicate? Do you want to discover how to harness the power of the body’s immune system to help develop new treatments for Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Brain tumors and many other illnesses?

Job description

Interested in these questions? Come and work with us in an interdisciplinary environment as we strive to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of autoimmunity and neuroinflammation. Apply state of the art experimental techniques including advanced immunologic procedures, bulk and single-cell RNA-sequencing, in-vivo imaging, real-time bioenergetic analysis, targeted and untargeted molecular imaging, mass spectrometry and more. Use in-vitro platforms, animal models, and human samples to study these questions, and generate new insights leading toward a greater understanding of neuroimmunology.
