A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Oliver BISCHOF, funded by the French National Institute of health INSERM, to study regulatory networks in senescence and aging. His research focuses on investigating senescent cells’ role in aging and age-related diseases, with a particular focus on the integration of time-resolved multi-Omics data sets to dissect regulatory networks driving the senescence process. His team has shown by using integrative analysis and functional validation, important links between enhancer chromatin, transcription factor (TF) recruitment, and senescence competence (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41556-020-0529-5). A major goal is to unravel the senescence code and identify new therapeutic inroads to counteract senescent cells’ detrimental impact on aging and age-related diseases.

Applications are invited from motivated, ambitious, and independent candidates who aim to investigate the role of cellular senescence in the context of aging using bioinformatics and systems biology approaches. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field, have a proven track record, and are driven by scientific curiosity. An asset is an experience in chromatin biology and expertise in the integrative bioinformatic analysis of OMICS data sets (e.g., ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, and RNA-seq…). The position is initially for one year with a potential extension. Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis. To find out more about this unique opportunity to establish advanced skills and expertise in the exciting field of cellular senescence, please contact Dr. Oliver BISCHOF at firstname.lastname@example.org.
