Postdoctoral positions in mammalian epigenetics

Posted by , on 30 September 2015

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in the laboratory “Epigenetic Regulation of Cell Identity” headed by Dr. Michael WEBER at the CNRS in Strasbourg (France). The positions are funded for up to three years by an ERC Consolidator grant and the INCa (National Cancer Institute).

The research in our laboratory aims at better understanding the function and regulation of DNA methylation in mammalian development by combining molecular biology, high-throughput sequencing, bioinformatics and mouse genetics (Auclair G et al Genome Biol 2014; Guibert S et al Genome Res 2012; Borgel J et al Nature Genet 2010). The successful applicants will uncover and study novel regulatory pathways of DNA methylation in normal and malignant cells.

Our Institute is located on the Illkirch research campus in Strasbourg. The campus offers an international environment with access to state-of-the-art facilities (NGS sequencing, animal housing, proteomics, imaging). The successful candidates will join a young and dynamic team. For more information see our website:

We are looking for candidates with a Ph.D. in Molecular or Developmental Biology. Prior experience with epigenetics, NGS datasets or mouse embryology will be positively considered. We expect the candidates to be motivated, creative, excellent team players, and preferably with at least one publication as first author. Applicants with less than two years after obtaining their PhD will be favored.

Starting date: end 2015 or early 2016

Salary: Competitive salary following the CNRS guidelines (> 2,500 € brut / month)

Please send a CV, letter of motivation, and at least one letter of recommendation to Dr Michael Weber (
