Project Description

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the group of Dr. Miguel de Lucas at the School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences at Durham University to carry out fundamental research in the field of chromatin remodeling in response to environmental signals. The project will involve examining the dynamic of histone post-transcriptional modifications in response to light using novel next generation sequencing techniques combined with genetic, biochemical and computational approaches. The student will be part of a highly dynamic and collaborative environment. During the course of the PhD, the student will attend to courses and conferences, collaborate with other researchers in the institute as well as visit research labs within or abroad the UK.
