We are looking for a highly motivated young scientist interested in pursuing a PhD in Computational Regulatory Genomics. The long-term goal of our group is to understand how gene expression and genome packaging is affected by genetic and epigenetic changes that happen during evolution, development and in disease, in particular cancer. The data that we use for our research are generated in collaboration with experimental groups, or retrieved from publicly available databases. The predoctoral position is available immediately. Informal enquiries about available projects can be addressed to Tanya Vavouri (email@example.com) before application.
