A postdoctoral position funded by the ERC is available in the group “Meiosis and Recombination”.

Our group is interested in the mechanism and regulation of meiotic recombination using mouse as a model system and taking advantage of a large variety of experimental approaches.
The research project will aim to understand molecular mechanisms mediating and regulating interactions between homologous chromosomes during meiotic prophase.
Ambitious and pioneering approaches at the molecular and cytological levels will be developed to address these questions.
Qualification: We are seeking a highly qualified and motivated postdoc with strong skills in molecular and cellular biology, with previous research experience and knowledge in chromosome and genome biology, validated by high quality firstauthor publications.
Application: Please submit a CV, a statement of research interest, and names of at least two references as a single pdf file to: Bernard de Massy (, starting date: 2021.
