Back Wet-lab postdoctoral position at Evolutionary and Functional Genomics Lab (Deadline: 4th March)


Wet-lab Postdoc position at Evolutionary and Functional Genomics Lab

Application deadline: 4th March 2023. 

Reference: Wet-lab postdoctoral position

More information:  

The postdoctoral researcher will be part of a team of two postdoctoral researchers and one laboratory technician, carrying out a research project that aims to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying gene-environment associations in the context of the current global change. The team will identify and characterize gene-environment associations in Drosophila melanogaster natural populations using both bioinformatic and experimental approaches. Whole genome sequences from natural populations collected mainly in Europe, US and Africa will be available at the start of the project, while other -omics datasets will be produced during the course of the project.

The postdoctoral researcher will be in charge of generating RNA-seq and ChIP-seq samples from natural D. melanogaster populations. The researcher will also be responsible for carrying out in vivo enhancer assays and in vivo CRISPR/Cas9 editing to test the functional role of the genetic variants identified.
