We are looking for a passionate scientist to join our efforts to elucidate
molecular mechanisms implicated in the erasure of epigenetic memory (at both
DNA methylation and chromatin structure levels) observed in early mouse
embryo and in developing germ line. As our latest scientific endeavor involves
the investigation into the interplay between cell signaling pathways and
global epigenetic changes observed in the early gonadal germ cells, candidates
with an interest in interplay between cell signaling and epigenetics are
strongly encouraged to apply.
