My goal as an advisor is to help students become broadly trained in evolutionary studies and computational biology. I believe it is instrumental that students learn to ask their own independent, informed research questions that can then be addressed in tractable ways. This process is very rewarding and requires passion for science and self discipline. On my end, you can expect committed mentoring, regular one-on-one meetings, and the support to develop as an independent researcher.

Opportunities for M.Sc and Ph.D students:

Creative minds and passionate biologists please apply! Opportunities always exist for outstanding students who want to do cutting-edge research in a collaborative atmosphere. If your interests fall under the large umbrella of evolution, genomics, and bioinformatics we are interested in hearing from you. Students with background in both biology and computer science/statistics are especially welcome.

If you are interested in joining the lab, please send your CV and a short introductory statement by e-mail (itaymay 'at' This statement should: (1) breifly describe who you are and why you are interested in joining the lab, and (2) describe your experience, in particular, that is related to computational biology and evolution.

Opportunities for research associate and lab technician:

We are looking for a long term research associate with computational background, and preferably in computational biology. In case you are interested in joining the lab please send your CV by e-mail and include a short background statement.

Students with computational experience that are interested to work on an hourly basis are also welcome to apply.
