A three-year Ph.D. position (50% E 13 TV-L) is immediately available at the Department of Biology (http://www.biologie.nat.uni-erlangen.de/English/home.shtml) at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Germany).
The focus of our research group is on understanding the functional aspects of the human genome in health and disease through the analysis of the different levels of information encoded in the sequence. Some of our publications include:
Taher et al., Sequence signatures extracted from proximal promoters can be used to predict distal enhancers, Genome Biology, 2013 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24156763).
R.P. Smith et al., Massively parallel decoding of mammalian regulatory sequences supports a flexible organizational model, Nat Genet, 2013 (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23892608).
