One position available in january 2020 in the group Chromatin and Infection.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, dedicated postdoctoral fellow to study histone modifications induced by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae. A candidate with previous experience in chromatin techniques (ChIP) and big data is preferable.
Our research focuses on the impact of bacteria on eukaryotic chromatin. We have shown that bacterial pathogens interfere with the host transcriptional program through manipulation of chromatin. Our interests lie in identifying new mechanisms by which bacteria modify host histones, the role of these processes during infection and on investigating the persistence of histone modifications beyond infection. Work in our laboratory is at the interface between microbiology, chromatin biology/epigenetics and innate immunity. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to investigate strategies used by bacteria to reprogram host transcription, as well as fundamental cellular epigenetic processes.
Candidates should email a CV, motivation letter, and the names of two references to Melanie Hamon (firstname.lastname@example.org).
