  • Impact of Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plant Traits (INDEPTH)

    Plants are vital to human life and health and are essential to mitigate the effects of climate change. Due to their sessile lifestyle, plants have developed the ability to rapidly adapt their genome expression in response to environmental challenges. Multiple lines of evidence indicate that spatial (3D) organization of nuclear DNA is critical in this adaptation process and the Impact of Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plant Traits (INDEPTH) network will decipher how nuclear architecture, chromatin organization and gene expression are connected and modified in response to internal and external cues. This is COST Action CA16212

    The Probst / Tatout team at the GReD institute in Clermont-Ferrand, France, has the possibility to present a candidate for a Post-doc position financed by our university (University Clermont Auvergne) for the duration of one year, renewable (Brut salary: 2464 Euros).

    Our team studies chromatin and nuclear organization and we wish to present a candidate interested to reinforce our research axis on histone variants and chaperones. If the selected by the UCA, the potential candidate will follow up on our recent characterization of different histone chaperones and their role in histone variant deposition and recycling with a special emphasis on transcription-coupled histone dynamics (Duc, Plant J, 2015; Duc Plant Cell, 2017; Benoit, New Phytologist, 2019; Le Goff, Plant J, 2020), but if the candidate wishes to develop a related project in line with our research on histone variants this can also be discussed. The deadline for the proposal is the 8thof June 2020 and the position is meant to start after the 1stof October 2020. The candidate needs to hold a PhD degree by the beginning of the post-doctoral project.
