Advancing Epigenetics Towards Systems Biology

Postdoc in meiosis and recombination

CNRS/Institute of Human Genetics


The research project will be based on our recent progress on the role of proteins involved in the formation of DNA double strand break during meiosis (ie MEI4, REC114, SPO11, TOPOVIBL, PRDM9) and their evolutionary conservation. The approaches to be developed will be mostly biochemical in order to gain insight into the activities of these proteins, their interactions and their regulations in vitro, with complementary in vivo approaches.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree in Biological Science validated by high quality publications.
Knowledge and expertise in biochemistry is absolutely required. Knowledge and expertise in molecular biology and in the field of DNA/chromosome biology is strongly recommended. English fluent (french not required) Team work Ambition, commitment and autonomy.


according to CNRS guidelines.
