A postdoctoral position is available at The Drosophila Development Laboratory for analysis of the epigenetic regulation of gene expression during oocyte reactivation and fast cell proliferation in Drosophila melanogaster and human cells. To bypass limitations of “standard” steady-state RNAseq approaches, we are currently optimising nascent RNA transcriptomics approaches for developing embryos.
Applications of highly motivated postdoctoral researchers, willing to learn state-of-the-art transcriptomics approaches, and not afraid of being involved in a international collaborative effort, are strongly encourage to apply. This project will be developed in close collaboration with Maria Carmo-Fonseca laboratory (IMM, Lisbon).
Ideal candidates should have: i) a previous experience with Drosophila melanogaster and/or tissue culture of human cells, qRT-PCR, chromatin purification, and RNAseq techniques; and/or ii) a strong background in computational biology and experience in the analysis of RNAseq datasets.
