Advancing Epigenetics Towards Systems Biology

Postdoc Epigenetics/Cancer

ULB-University of Brussels, Belgium

Description

A position is available for a highly motivated Postdoc who wish to join the Laboratory of Cancer Epigenetics headed by Prof. François Fuks (University of Brussels - ULB).
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

Applicants should hold a PhD degree in Molecular Biology, Biology, Biochemistry or related disciplines (or have recently submitted their thesis with their defence scheduled) and have published (or about to publish) in a peer reviewed journal. Experience in epigenetics/epigenomics is an asset.

Salary

Fellowship
