One postdoctoral position is available for 12 months, from February 2022 to study the connection between chromatin architecture and transcription in the laboratory of Giacomo Cavalli.
Our lab has investigated the spatial organizational principles of the fly and the mammalian genome for two decades and has been a pioneer in assaying genome architecture using molecular biology approaches like HiC.
Using these approaches, we have shown that chromatin rewires during cellular differentiation concomitantly with transcriptional changes. The project will build upon these findings and utilize genetics, genome engineering, molecular biology and high-end-microscopy techniques to provide fundamental mechanistic insights into nuclear architecture and the relationship to transcription.
Candidates must have an outstanding CV, be highly motivated, self-driven and hardworking.
Extensive experience in molecular cloning, ES cell culture, neuronal differentiation, CRISPR, HiC, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, FACS sorting, confocal microscopy as well as some experience with R, analysis of ChIP-seq and RNA-seq data will be essential. Experience with biochemistry techniques (IP, WB, co-IP) is a plus.
The work will be performed in the laboratory of Giacomo Cavalli at the Institute of Human Genetics (IGH). IGH is a flagship institute for life science research and is located in the vibrant city of Montpellier, in the south of France. It offers state of the art equipment and facilities in a top-notch international environment.
