We are looking for a highly qualified and motivated researcher for a three-year Ph.D. position focusing on transcriptional regulation in mouse embryonic stem cells at the University of Iceland, Reykjavík.
The project is supported by the University of Iceland Doctoral Fund and the Icelandic Research Council for three years.
The studentship is in the Biomedical Center (www.lifvisindi.hi.is) and is associated with the Faculty of Medicine and the Graduate Program in Molecular Life Sciences (GPMLS). The graduate program is a joint program between research groups at the University of Iceland and research organizations associated with the University. The main objective of GPMLS is to create a dynamic interdisciplinary educational program and to advance research and education in the field of molecular life sciences. The program offers research and education opportunities in a stimulating environment for students working towards MSc. or PhD.
The PhD Position
The student will investigate transcriptional mechanisms in mouse embryonic stem cell fate commitment, with the aim of generating a better understanding of molecular mechanisms of early embryonic development. The approach will focus on genome wide assays such as chromatin immunoprecipitation and gene expression analysis coupled to high throughput sequencing in addition to molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology techniques as well as CRISPR-Cas9 based genome editing techniques. Erna Magnúsdóttir, associate professor at the Faculty of medicine, will be the projects supervisor. The group’s website can be found at http://magnuslab.is/.
