Advancing Epigenetics Towards Systems Biology

Epigenetic Regulation of Genomic Imprinting

Institute of Molecular Genetics (IGMM), CNRS & University of Montpellier, Mnntpellier, France

Description

The Institute of Molecular Genetics in Montpellier (IGMM) seeks to employ a post-doctoral scientist in epigenetics. The project will explore imprinted gene expression during mammalian development, with a particular emphasis on the role of long non-coding RNAs in chromatin structuration. Murine embryonic stem cells are used as a main model, in the context of ANR and INCa funded research programmes. The successful candidate will join the ‘Imprinting and Development’ team within the dynamic setting of the IGMM (http://www.igmm.cnrs.fr/en/), LabEx EpiGenMed and Montpellier BioCampus, in the vibrant Mediterranean city of Montpellier. For relevant publications, see Cell reports 22, 337 (2018), Cell reports 18, 1791 (2017), Genome Research 26, 192 (2016) and Developmental Cell 31, 19 (2014).

Qualifications

Applicants must have a recent Ph.D. degree in developmental or molecular biology and prior experience with bioinformatics is preferable.

Salary

Funding for this position, starting early 2019, is for 2 years initially. Starting salary, according to CNRS post-doctoral pay scale (about 2000 € net), will depend on experience and age.
