Technician

The group of Dr. Francesca Mattiroli currently has a vacancy for a Technician full time (38 hours/week) to work on Mechanism of epigenome inheritance Description of the project: Proper inheritance of the epigenetic information during cell division controls cell fate and survival. While we understand how DNA is replicated in S phase, we lack mechanistic knowledge on how the epigenetic information, specifically histone post-translational modifications in nucleosomes, are propagated to daughter cells. The technician will use protein purification approaches, biochemical…
