We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to help with work on data generation and interpretation on a project on single cell data.
About the team
Our groups study genome regulation from an evolutionary systems perspective. In particular, we are interested in deciphering the evolution of animal cell type developmental programs and the regulatory mechanisms underlying these programs. To this end, we apply advanced single-cell genomics and chromatin experimental methods to molecularly dissect cell types and epigenomic landscapes in phylogenetically diverse organisms. We also develop computational tools to integrate these diverse data sources into models of cell type gene regulatory networks and we use phylogenetic methods to comparatively analyze these models. Our recent work has provided the first whole-organism cell type atlases in different species and mapped key regulatory features underlying both development and cell diversity in non-model invertebrate organisms and the origin of vertebrates (see "Relevant Publications" below). By analysing the development of chordate species at single-cell resolution, we now aim at dissecting the evolution of vertebrate cellular ontogenies and their underlying gene regulatory networks.
