Advancing Epigenetics Towards Systems Biology

PhD @ Laboratory of Cancer Epigenetics

ULB-University of Brussels, Brussels, Belgium

Description

A position is available for a highly motivated PhD student who wish to join the Laboratory of Cancer Epigenetics headed by Prof. François Fuks (ULB - University of Brussels).
You are expected to conduct cancer research in epigenetics and epigenomics. You will investigate the mechanisms and functions of a novel epigenetic modification, which our lab recently investigated (Delatte et al., Science 2016). Genetic, biochemical, biological and genome-wide approaches (e.g. RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, Infinium Methylation) will be applied. The lab runs a Next-Gen sequencing platform, and is part of the U-CRC, providing a high profile scientific environment.

Qualifications

Candidates should have completed a Master course (M.Sc. 120 credits or equivalent) in Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry or related subjects.

Salary

Scholarships salary upon qualifications
