Postdoctoral Position: Molecular Mechanisms Driving Zygotic Genome Activation in Early Embryos

FMI - Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research

Basel, Switzerland

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the group of Antoine Peters at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI) in Basel. The laboratory studies the mechanisms underlying chromatin dynamics, gene regulation and epigenetic inheritance in germ cell development, early embryogenesis and between generations of mice. To do so, we use interdisciplinary approaches combining methods from molecular biology, biochemistry, mouse genetics, epigenomics and quantitative (live) imaging.

The research project concentrates on identifying the role of transcription factors and chromatin modifiers in controlling the activation and repression of parental genomes in mouse pre-implantation embryos. We are looking for a bright and highly motivated scientist who has excellent knowledge of gene regulation and epigenetics, as well as experience in the generation and analysis of epigenomic data sets, preferably using low- or single cell epigenomic approaches in a developmental biology context.
