Job & study opportunities

Postdoc positions in genomics and/or bioinformatics supported by ERC and Lundbeck Foundation

Several postdoc positions are available from September 1st, 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter, in the incoming laboratory of group leader Taro Kitazawa at DANDRITE, Nordic EMBL partnership and the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University. Initial contracts are two years but can be extended after evaluation.

The project is a part of research program on epigenetic and transcriptional basis of neuroplasticity in memory formation, supported by the European Research Council (ERC) and Lundbeck Foundation.
The positions will mainly focus on establishment of novel genomics sequencing technologies and application of them in neuronal systems, and/or on analysis of genomics data (e.g. bulk/single-cell RNS-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, 3C-seq) in fear memory formation, which will be produced by other lab members.
The positions will also involve active interactions with other lab members and research networks in the Aarhus University including the Bioinformatics Facility, and the DANDRITE center of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine.

Application deadline is 30 June 2022

Postdoc positions in epigenetic and transcriptional analysis of neuroplasticity supported by ERC and Lundbeck Foundation

Several postdoc positions are available from September 1st, 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter, in the incoming laboratory of group leader Taro Kitazawa at DANDRITE, Nordic EMBL partnership and the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University. Initial contracts are two years but can be extended after evaluation.

The project is a part of research program on epigenetic and transcriptional basis of neuroplasticity in memory formation, supported by the European Research Council (ERC) and Lundbeck Foundation.
The project will apply traditional neuroscience skills in a novel and exciting context of epigenetic and transcriptional regulation of memory. The positions will mainly focus on application of state-of-the-art genomics technologies (e.g. bulk/single-cell RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, 3C-seq) to study molecular basis of neuroplasticity in fear memory engram formation, and also on functional analysis of relevant epigenetic and transcription factors using in vivo mouse and/or in vitro culture systems (e.g. gene knocking down, optogenetics).
The positions will also involve active interactions with other lab members and research networks in the Aarhus University including the DANDRITE center of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine, and the PROMEMO center of excellence for research on mechanisms in memory.

Application deadline is 30 June 2022
