A postdoctoral position for a molecular biologist is available in the Computational Epigenomics group at the Center for Genomic Science of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Milan, Italy (https://www.iit.it/centers/cgs-semm). The group adopts an interdisciplinary approach based on cutting edge computational and experimental methods to investigate fundamental mechanisms in the epigenetic control of transcriptional regulation. In particular, we study the functional role of the rates of mRNA synthesis, processing and degradation (mRNA dynamics), and their (epi-)genomic determinants.
Starting from robust preliminary data, the selected candidate will lead projects to characterise:
(i) the interplay between chromatin regulation and the m6A epitranscriptome
(ii) the role of this cross-talk for the establishment of mRNA dynamics.
