What are some non-academic jobs near Tel Aviv, Israel that would be a good fit for someone with training in statistics (MA) and ecology (PhD)?

For the next two years I'll be living in Rehovot, Israel, where my wife has accepted a postdoc. I recently completed my PhD in ecology and MA in statistics. Ideally, I would also find a two-year academic postdoc, but the search has been challenging. While a postdoc isn't yet out of the question, I think it is time to start brainstorming some other jobs/careers/piecemeal work I might consider for the two years I'll be there. What are some good options?
More on my skills:
- I don't speak Hebrew.
- I minored in CS as an undergrad and can program in Java, R, and C++ reasonably well, but maybe not well enough that I could perform a job with the title "programmer".
- I like to think that I have good experience using statistics and programming as tools to meet some larger problem-solving objective (eg in ecology), and I'm most interested in a job that would let me do something similar.
Any and all suggestions welcome, thanks for your help!
