Current vacancies

Postdoctoral Researcher in genetic disorders of chromatin function

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Beagrie Lab!

You will help us understand how mutations in chromatin organising genes cause disease. Your project will specifically examine how mutations in Nipbl cause the heart and brain defects seen in Cornelia de Lange syndrome. We're looking for someone with (or about to finish) a PhD in biology, biochemistry, genetics, bioinformatics or a related subject. You will need strong research expertise in chromatin, gene regulation or congenital disease, and will have hands on experience generating or analysing genomics datasets. Your project will involve learning how to generate Genome Architecture Mapping data and how to integrate it with single-cell and/or spatial transcriptomics data.

Whilst you will be expected to conduct both laboratory experiments and computational analyses, applications are strongly encouraged from applicants lacking experience in one or other of these areas.

Further details and a full job description can be found here. Applications close at 12 midday on Wednesday 6 July 2022. Informal inquiries are encouraged, get in touch with Rob.
