A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in Dr Isabelle Mareschal’s group, to work on emotion recognition in refugee children in Jordan in collaboration with the NGO We Love Reading. The post-holder will conduct research into emotion recognition in refugee children in Jordan in collaboration with the NGO “We Love Reading” and will travel to Jordan three times for periods of 2 weeks each time.
This research position will focus on characterising the global gene regulatory dynamics during spiral cleavage in two annelids exhibiting different strategies of cell fate specification. The project will involve the use of state-of-the-art epigenomic approaches, such as ATAC-seq, in combination with stage-specific RNA-seq and ChIP-seq of candidate epigenomic marks. The findings from the project will untangle the epigenomic regulation of early spiral cleavage and provide a general understanding of the developmental control of this highly conserved mode of cleavage.
