Post-doctoral position available in the SWOBODA lab (january 2007)


One post-doctoral position for 3 years is available to perform comparative studies in fission yeasts, worms and flies on how the general controls of gene expression and genome maintenance are governed. In all three groups of organisms, fission yeasts, worms and flies, these tasks are managed by a combination of protein-coding and non-protein-coding genes. Given the evolutionary diversity of the three groups of organisms, are there any common regulatory principles and mechanisms, between all three or two of three groups of organisms? Successful candidates are expected to apply both bioinformatic as well as wet-lab approaches.

Candidates with interest in this project or who wish to apply for the position are welcome to directly contact PETER SWOBODA for further information.
