PhD Student in Developmental Epigenetics

The Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) is a Centre of Excellence for Life Sciences funded by the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation. It is located on the campus of the University of Mainz in Germany. Applications are invited for a PhD student position in the laboratory of Dr Vijay Tiwari (www.imb-mainz.de/research-at-imb/tiwari). The successful applicant will contribute to internationally competitive research on Epigenetic Regulation of Development. The group employs high-throughput epigenomics assays in combination with stem cell biology and neurobiology as well as cutting-edge epigenetics and molecular biology tools. The resulting datasets are analyzed using bioinformatics, statistics and systems biology tools to generate a comprehensive model of epigenetic regulation of gene expression during embryonic development. Information on the scientific background can be found at:

You will
  • Study epigenetic mechanisms that regulate cell-type specification during embryonic development
  • Utilize mouse embryonic stem cell differentiation and mouse as a model system
  • Obtain training in epigenetics, developmental biology, computational biology and gene regulation
  • Have access to all IMB Core Facilities
  • Collaborate with internal and external partners
  • Work in close cooperation with a team of experimental and computational researchers

We offer
  • The possibility to work on a cutting-edge project using state-of-the-art technology in a highly motivated research team
