An open post-doctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Alex de Mendoza at Queen Mary University of London (United Kingdom). This is a European Research Council funded position under the project METHYLEVOL, aimed at understanding the evolution of DNA methylation in animals and other eukaryotes. This position is for 2 years, with expected extensions up to 4 years.
For this position, the candidate must have previous experience in bioinformatics, epigenomics, genome-analysis of gene regulation, or comparative genomics. Expertise on Transposable Elements will be a plus. Additionally, the capacity to perform molecular biology techniques would be highly advantageous (e.g. cloning, NGS library construction).
The goal is to understand the role of DNA methylation in invertebrates and other eukaryotes through comparative methods, focusing on DNA methylation readers. This work follows previous discoveries of the laboratory that has challenged long held expectations in the field, see latest publications here: https://www.demendozalab.com/publications
