Job description:

A position is available for a highly motivated Postdoc who wish to join the Laboratory of Cancer Epigenetics headed by Prof. François Fuks (University of Brussels - ULB).

You are expected to conduct cancer research in epigenetics and epigenomics. You will investigate the mechanisms and functions of a novel epigenetic modification, which our lab recently investigated (Delatte et al., Science 2016). Genetic, biochemical, biological and genome-wide approaches (e.g. RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, Infinium Methylation) will be applied. The lab runs a Next-Gen sequencing platform, and is part of the U-CRC (, providing a high profile scientific environment.


Applicants should hold a PhD degree in Molecular Biology, Biology, Biochemistry or related disciplines (or have recently submitted their thesis with their defence scheduled) and have published (or about to publish) in a peer reviewed journal. Experience in epigenetics/epigenomics is an asset.


Screening of applications begins immediately and continues until an outstanding candidate is selected. Skype interviews are possible for candidates outside Belgium. Flexible starting date.

How to apply?

Informal inquiries, a CV, a motivation letter and names of at least two referees, should be sent to: Mrs Albarani, PhD (
