PhD position on “DNA epigenetic modification in neurons”

  • Full Time
  • Germany

A 3-year Ph.D position is available on DNA epigenetic modification in neurons at the IAS-5 / INM-9 Computational Biomedicine Institute of Forschungszentrum Jülich.

In human biology and medicine, the field of epigenetics is booming, yet very few studies have appeared trying to decipher molecular mechanisms associated with DNA epigenetic modification in neurons. In this context, this research project will aim to understand the function of enzymes involved in neuroepigenetics mechanisms using multiscale molecular simulation approaches.

Payment of the Ph.D fellow will be based on salary grade EG 13 (50%) Collective Agreement for the Civil Service (TVöD).

Forschungszentrum Jülich aim to employ more women in this area and therefore particularly welcome applications from women. They also welcome applications from disabled persons.

The candidate is encouraged to send an e-mail to Prof. Paolo Carloni ([email protected]) or Dr. Riccardo Guareschi ([email protected]) providing a CV, a motivation letter (one page maximum), and the names of two referees.
The received documents will be screened by an evaluating committee and, based on the expertise and the records of the scientific career; the shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview, by teleconference if necessary.
