Postdoc in Epigenetics (f/m/x)

At our institute you will find a scien­tifically stimulating inter­national environment. Together with renowned scientists and supported by an excellent infra­structure you will have the opportunity to make an important contri­bution for a healthier society.
The Institute of Functional Epigenetics (IFE) focuses on under­standing the epigenetic mechanisms whereby cells and organisms integrate metabolic signals, establish cellular memory, and regulate plasticity. We leverage this knowledge to identify new epi­genetic pathways for drug discovery. We use cutting-edge methods (multi-omics, single cell, live cell imaging, modelling, bio­chemistry as well as various develop­mental, stem cell and cell biology systems) to predict, observe, and mani­pulate epigenetic processes.

The position
The Schneider group is recruiting a Postdoc to work on the inter­phase between chromatin bio­chemistry, epigenetics and epi­transcrip­tomics. The applicant should have experience in the epi­genetics or chromatin field, a solid publi­cation record and be motivated to develop and drive her/his own project.

The successful candidate will address a central question in epi­genetics: how do epigenetic mechanisms control gene expression programs in single cells and how are transcrip­tional states maintained through cell divisions.

The applicant will implement a combi­nation of in vitro and in vivo approaches, including different "omics" techniques and their analyses as well as the develop­ment of novel single cell techno­logies. He/she will benefit from a vibrant scientific environ­ment within the Helmholtz center as well as the strong epi­genetics and chromatin commu­nity in the Munich area.
