We will apply various modern techniques for studying features of three-dimensional (3D) genomic organization such as 3C, Hi-C, ChIP-Seq, RNA-seq and genome editing using CRISPR/Cas9 based techniques. Successful candidate will be proficient in a wide range of analytical methods and the use of bioinformatics/genetics software for analyzing and interpreting various types of data.
