The São Paulo Research Foundation calls applications to call for FAPESP Postdoctoral Scholarships in Molecular Biology in the Department of Genetics, Evolution, Microbiology, and Immunology, Institute of Biology, at São Paulo Research Foundation in Brazil.

Two postdoctoral positions with a duration of two years (with the possibility of extension for a maximum of another two years) are available to work on a collaborative research project between the laboratories of Patrick Varga-Weisz (University of Essex) and Marco Vinolo (Unicamp ).

Research Project

Project Title: Remodeling of chromatin in the host-microbiota interaction in health and disease conditions

In this project, cutting edge approaches will be used to clarify how the chromatin dynamics integrates the signals coming from the communication between the microbiota and the host. The mechanisms by which modifications of histones linked to the microbiota (including crotonylation) alter gene expression will be investigated, and how these chromatin changes can be modified in ulcerative colitis. For this, transcriptomics and chromatin analysis in a single cell will be used. Although most of this work is carried out in an experimental model (mice), some aspects will also be investigated using patient samples.
