ERC Funded Postdoctoral Position in Epigenetics

ERC Funded Postdoctoral Position in Epigenetics

Institut Pasteur

Paris, France

The laboratory of Mechanisms of Epigenetic Inheritance headed by Dr. Germano Cecere in the Department of Developmental and Stem Cell biology at Institut Pasteur in Paris is offering ERC funded research opportunities for postdoctoral scientists with a strong interest in epigenetics and gene regulation.

In our laboratory we are studying the role of small RNAs in epigenetic inheritance using the nematode C. elegans as model system. We are integrating genetic, biochemical, and molecular biology tools with high-throughput genomic and proteomic approaches to achieve a molecular understanding of the epigenetic inheritance process in animals. Our research aims to elucidate how small RNAs are generated and inherited through the gametes, and how they transmit information from one generation to another. We are also exploring the impact that these heritable molecules have on essential developmental processes and in transmitting the memory of past experiences such as pathogen infections and other type of stresses.

Qualifications

We are looking for highly passionate and motivated candidates holding a Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology or any related area of Life Science. Candidates with strong background in biochemistry, molecular and RNA biology, generation and/or analysis of next generation sequencing, mass spectrometry or quantitative microscopy are especially encouraged to apply. Previous experience with C. elegans model would be an asset, but not essential. Successful applicants are expected to have demonstrated ability to work independently, have good organizational skills, work in an interdisciplinary team, and manage multiple tasks. English is our working language. Knowledge of French is not required.
