The Munich collaborative research center (CRC) Chromatin Dynamics is now calling for applications for doctoral researcher positions.

The CRC explores the nature of dynamic transitions of chromatin organization. It aims to understand principles and mechanisms that endow chromatin organization with diversity, flexibility and plasticity to respond to environmental, metabolic and developmental cues. CRC research strives for an integrated understanding of chromatin structure and function, involving identification and biochemical characterization of enzymes and metabolites, multi-omic analyses and imaging of cells in diverse physiological states and during ontogeny of model organisms.
