In France, PhD and postdoc funding is often given to a candidate + project. So I am always on the lookout for motivated candidates that share an interest in eukaryotic gene regulation and its evolution.
Some topics that spark my interest are genome structure, transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation, gene expression dynamics, chromatin code, development (patterning and cell type specification), and evolution.
In addition, I am ever keen to discuss undergraduate traineeships with students interested in computational/systems biology, modelling, and bioinformatics.
Do not hesitate to contact me (mail) and we can talk about opportunities.
