Applications are invited for a 2-year postdoctoral research position in the Reprogramming and Chromatin Group headed by Professor Petra Hajkova at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences. The group studies molecular mechanisms underlying epigenetic reprogramming in vivo and in vitro (for further information please visit https://lms.mrc.ac.uk/research-group/reprogramming-and-chromatin/ ).
We are looking for a passionate scientist to join our efforts to elucidate molecular mechanisms implicated in the erasure of epigenetic memory (at both DNA methylation and chromatin structure levels) observed in early mouse embryo and in developing germ line. As our latest scientific endeavor involves the investigation into the interplay between cell signaling pathways and global epigenetic changes observed in the early gonadal germ cells; the candidates with interest in interplay between cell signaling and epigenetics are strongly encouraged to apply.
For our recent publications please see (Nashun et al, Mol Cell 2015, Amouroux et al, Nat Cell Biology 2016 and Hill et al, Nature 2018).
