  • Investigation of protein-DNA interactions using ChIP-seq or cut-and-run
  • Analysis of alterations in chromatin organization
  • Integration of publicly available datasets relevant to the systems under study


We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented postdoctoral fellow with a PhD degree in computational biology, bioinformatics, computer science, (bio)-statistics, mathematics, or related fields, and with a strong drive to excel in a highly international and collaborative environment. Previous experience in genome-wide data analysis (e.g., RNA-seq, scRNA-seq, or ChIP-seq) will be a significant advantage. Please specify your level of proficiency in your cover letter.
