Early Stage Researcher and Experienced Researcher Positions
- InteGeR Marie Curie Initial Training Network , Various locations

Description: Several 3-year Early Stage Researcher (predoctoral) and 2-year Experienced Researcher (postdoctoral) fellowships are available with the InteGeR Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN).

The InteGeR (Integrated Gene Regulation) ITN consists of 10 partners located in 5 European countries. The main aim of the InteGeR ITN is to provide high level training by using state-of-the-art genomic, proteomic and imaging approaches in investigating gene regulation, from trans-acting factors through to nuclear structure, in cellular differentiation. Specific research directions of the InteGeR ITN are as follows:

  1. Transcription factor function as master regulators of differentiation
  2. Chromatin structure and epigenetic modifications in cellular memory
  3. Spatial nuclear organisation of gene interactions and gene activity
Positions are available in the following labs:
