Postdoctoral Positions: Genetic and Epigenetic Control of Gene Regulatory Networks

Posted 7/5/2017

We are recruiting two Postdoctoral Fellows to study the genetic and epigenetic control of gene regulatory networks (GRNs) during vertebrate development. We combine mouse genome editing with epigenetic, chromatin and transcriptome analyses to get fundamental insights into how morphogenetic signaling regulates the epigenetic landscapes and activity of the cis-regulatory modules orchestrate the expression of the GRNs controlling vertebrate limb organogenesis. A second major aspect of our research is to identify the changes in genome architecture and transcriptional regulation underlying adaptation of GRNs during evolutionary diversification of the vertebrate limb skeleton. The fully funded positions are available in the Developmental Genetics Group at the University of Basel (Switzerland; see the Developmental Genetics Website). You will join a dynamic and international research team in stimulating research environment. Life Sciences Research at the University of Basel is internationally competitive and offers excellent interdisciplinary and interfaculty research and training opportunities.
Applicants should send a CV with publication list, motivation letter, summary of PhD research, grades of master and PhD thesis and the names and addresses of three referees as one single PDF file directly to:

Interviews will continue until the positions are filled.
