    De novo gene birth and human evolution

    This endeavour seeks to unravel the evolutionary impact of a particularly intriguing class of new genes: protein-coding genes that arose “from scratch” (i.e., from previously noncoding DNA sequence) during evolution – so-called de novo genes. We will investigate the prevalence and functional roles of de novo genes in organ development across primates and thus illuminate the molecular evolution underlying the unique biology of humans, in particular that of the brain. The work will rely on the generation and analyses of ribosome profiling data across a unique set of prenatal developmental tissue samples, and the experimental characterisation of selected de novo genes in state-of-the-art in vitro organoid systems, ex vivo fetal tissue cultures, and in vivo transgenic mouse models. We seek enthusiastic applicants with a interest in evolutionary questions and a talent for experimental molecular work and/or bioinformatics analyses (i.e., joint and distinct dry/wet lab projects are possible).

    CRISPR mediated correction for hemoglobinopathies

    The candidate will work with patient derived CD34 cells and study the effect of gene editing on HbF up-regulation as a mechanism for treatment of Sickle cell Anemia and Beta Thallassemia. Previous experience with culturing and CRISPR manipulation of hematopoietic stem cells is desirable. The position is initially for 1 year and can be extended based on performance.
