Our main focus is to understand the molecular organization and function of chromatin, the DNA-protein complex which organizes the eukaryotic genome and regulates gene expression, using a combination of chemistry and biophysics.
There are open positions for PhD students!
If you are interested to perform a PhD thesis on the chemical biology and biophysics of chromatin or microtubules, directly contact: [email protected].
If you are interested in a postdoctoral position, please contact: [email protected].
