Welcome to my website!
Since January 2014 I am a group leader in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at the Alexander Silberman Institute of Life Sciences which is part of the Faculty of Science of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI). According to several international rankings, HUJI is Israel's top university. Our lab studies several topics of molecular evolution (see Research topics section). We use cnidarians (sea anemones, corals, jellyfish, hydrozoans) as models and employ various molecular, biochemical and computational techniques to answer our questions. Our main model organism and everyday workhorse is the starlet sea anemone, Nematostella vectensis.
We are looking to recruit a talented postdoc for a project on the evolution of small RNAs and antiviral defense. For further details please contact Yehu.
I can be reached at yehu.moran at mail.huji.ac.il or yehum79 at yahoo.com
