Two postdoctoral positions available at the
Friedrich Miescher Institute, Basel, Switzerland

1. In the area of plant responses to DNA damage (signaling and repair
pathways - with a focus on the molecular mechanisms of homologous
recombination).

2. In the area of epigenetic gene silencing in plants.

Both projects explore a genetic approach to identify molecular factors involved.
