The "Developmental epigenomics" team (www.ghavihelmlab.com) led by Yad Ghavi-Helm at the Institute of Functional Genomics of Lyon (IGFL) is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher. The team focuses on the regulation of gene expression and the organization of chromatin during the embryonic development of Drosophila. It is funded by an ERC Starting Grant until October 2023.
