the Institute of Human Genetics, CNRS, Montpellier, France Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral position is open in our laboratory at the Institute of Human Genetics, CNRS, Montpellier, France.

Place of work
The Institute of Human Genetics (www.igh.cnrs.fr) is a modern large CNRS Institute located in the University and Hospital area in Montpellier. Fully endowed with state-of-the-art scientific equipment, the IGH generates a stimulating and international research environment, for high-quality and intensive scientific life. The working language is English. The city is one of the most lively and concentrated areas for research scientists in France.

The team
Our multinational team wishes to understand how DNA replication origins are recognized, and how their organization is coordinated with the cell fate. Our model systems include cell cultures from both mouse and human cells, as well as in-vitro DNA replication systems from Xenopus eggs. Recently, our laboratory unravelled how genetic and epigenetic features shape DNA replication origin recognition and organization. The project is focused on functional aspects of metazoan DNA replication origins, using in-vivo cell systems as well as in-vitro cell systems to analyse the regulation of DNA replication and its associated factors.
