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 previous experience in molecular biology of cnidarian model systems (specifically Nematostella vectensis) is highly desired, including lab culture, genetic manipulation, spawning. Alternatively, experience in functional EvoDevo techniques of other non-traditional model systems is also welcome. Bioinformatics experience would be a plus, but we can train the candidates in this aspect. Ample opportunities for training in functional genomics.
The goal is to understand the role of DNA methylation in invertebrates, following previous work of the laboratory that has challenged long held expectations in the field, see latest publications here: https://www.demendozalab.com/publications
