Postdoc in Epigenetics/Cancer (Brussels, Belgium)
July 5, 2016 - October 31, 2016
A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Laboratory of Cancer Epigenetics headed by Prof. François Fuks (ULB – Université Libre de Bruxelles/Free University of Brussels, Belgium).
You will be expected to conduct cancer research in epigenetics and epigenomics. Specifically, you will investigate the mechanisms and functions of a novel epigenetic modification. The following recent publication has direct relevance to this project: Delatte B, et al., Science. 2016; 351:282-5. Genetic, biochemical and cell biological as well as genome-wide approaches (e.g. RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, Infinium Methylation) will be applied. The lab is running a Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Illumina platform: EPICS (http://epics.ulb.be/) and is part of the new ULB-Cancer Research Center (U-CRC) directed by Prof. Fuks, encompassing fundamental, translational and clinical research and providing an excellent scientific environment to conduct high profile research.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with extensive experience in molecular and cell biology. Applicants should hold a PhD degree in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology or related disciplines (or have recently submitted their thesis with their defence scheduled) and have published (or about to publish) in a peer reviewed journal. Experience in epigenetics/epigenomics would be an asset.
The position is funded for 3 years. Screening of applications begins immediately and continues until an outstanding candidate is selected. Flexible starting date.
Informal enquiries, a CV, a motivation letter and names of two referees should be send to: Valentina Albarani (email@example.com)
