Bringing the Genome to Life: Imaging Enhancer Dynamics

Postdoctoral positions at Institut Pasteur

Several postdoctoral positions are opened at the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France) to visualize the topological and functional dynamics of small regulatory pieces of DNA, called enhancers, in the animal genome. Successful candidates will join a collaborative and interdisciplinary venture in the newly formed unit Physics of Biological Function of biophysicist Thomas Gregor.

Presentation of the unit and its research topics:

The Unit for the Physics of Biological Function at Institut Pasteur studies the basic physical
principles that govern the existence of multicellular life. A core focus of the lab is to
understand biological development–the complex process through which an organism grows
from a single cell into a differentiated, multicellular organism–from a physics perspective. As
such, we formulate and experimentally validate quantitative models that describe how
individual cells interact and organize in order to generate complex life forms.
Our main interests lie in:
