You will join a laboratory that is part of an internationally recognised, high quality, multidisciplinary program that investigates several diverse aspects of eukaryotic gene expression and signalling. You will be working on a project aimed at understanding how transcription factors interact with their chromatin environment to influence gene expression. We are using combinations of molecular and genome/systems-wide approaches (for recent publications see; PNAS, 2015, 112, E4854; Cell Reports, 2014, 7, 1968). You should possess (or shortly expect to gain) a PhD and have experience in molecular cell biology techniques and, ideally, in applying genome-wide approaches. A desire to work on cutting edge aspects of gene regulation is essential.
