expression. This Unit is in a unique position to describe molecular/cellular mechanisms that
underlie genome biology at unprecedented levels thanks to in-house complementary expertise in DNA
replication, recombination and repair, RNA biology, cytoskeleton, control of cell division and
cancer biology. Website of the Unit.
The newly recruited group leader will benefit from state-of-the-art research equipment. Appropriate
laboratory space for 6-7 people and a start-up package will be available.
Please send a personal statement explaining why you are interested in joining the “Genome Integrity,
