Our mission as research center: Discover personalized medical solutions for environmentally triggered diseases to promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

At the Institute of Epigenetics and Stem Cells (IES) you will find a scientifically stimulating international environment. Together with renowned scientists and supported by an excellent infrastructure you will have the opportunity to make an important contribution for a healthier society.

A lab technician position is available in the “Chromosome dynamics and genome stability” group. One major aim of the group is to understand how cells accurately duplicate and process their genetic information by coordinating the fundamental processes of replication and transcription on the genetic and epigenetic level. By using innovative approaches combined with new cell biological, genetic and proteomic assays, we aim to identify the molecular players and characterize the sequence of events that allow these processes to occur simultaneously without major accidents on our chromosomes leading to DNA damage and genome instability, a hallmark of cancer and many human diseases.

Starting from April 1st, 2023 we are looking for a highly enthusiastic and motivated
