Post.doc in Epigenomics and Genome Replication in the Groth Group København Denmark,  

Biotech Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC) (company)

Posted on : 13 April 2017

Project Description

Our research/The group
  • Our research goal is to understand how chromatin is replicated and epigenetic information propagated in dividing cells, and how this impinges on epigenetic changes in disease. 
  • We are focusing on mechanisms involved in replication-coupled chromatin dynamics, propagation of DNA methylation and histone-based information. 
  • To this end we are applying innovative proteomic and genomic approaches in combination with cutting-edge cell biology, advanced imaging and biochemistry.

The research project
  • The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team working on how epigenetic information is transmitted in self-renewing cells. In particular, the lab is currently developing a panel of genomic tools to interrogate the impact of DNA replication on epigenome composition and transcription.
  •  The candidate will develop bioinformatic pipelines for these tools and optimally also be engaged in the wet-lab application of those tool to fundamental questions in epigenetics including how DNA replication influence transcription factor occupancy and 3D genome organization.

Qualifications and skills
We expect you to be a highly motivated and ambitious scientist with the following qualifications and skills:
  • A PhD in bioinformatics, computational biology or life sciences 
  • Documented experience with NGS data workflow and analysis (e.g. ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, HI-C, OK-seq, RNA-seq) 
  • Experience including a combination of scripting, programming, and statistical analysis 
  • Background in epigenomics / genomics 
  • Previous experience in cell and molecular biology is an advantage 
  • Ability to grasp complex problems and deliver creative, practical solutions 
  • Proven ability to envision, plan and execute a research project  
  • Excellent English skills written and spoken 
  • The ideal candidate will be a team player and have excellent communication skills.

Terms of salary and employment
  • Salary, pension and terms of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Academics Central organization. 
  • Depending on qualifications, a higher salary may be negotiated.
  • Non-Danish and Danish applicants may be eligible for tax reductions, if they hold a PhD degree and have not lived in Denmark the last 10 years.
