The Gartner lab is relocating from the UK https://www.lifesci.dundee.ac.uk/people/anton-gartner

to the Institute of Basic Science (IBS) Center for Genome Integrity (CGI)  https://cgi.ibs.re.kr/html/cgi_en/ at the UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, https://www.unist.ac.kr) campus in Ulsan. They are setting up a new branch for Genetic Toxicology.


Gartner lab have a track record in C. elegans, stress biology, genome stability and chromosome biology.

There ambition at the CGI is to become a leading Research Centre for Genome Integrity and Chromosome Biology. Building up the new branch for Genomic Toxicology provides excellent opportunities at all levels. They are looking for Postdoctoral Researchers, PhD and master students Interested in all aspects of Genetic Integrity, Chromosome Biology and Genome Research and Bioinformatics. At UNIST, all undergraduate teaching is done in English, and the IBS centre (https://cgi.ibs.re.kr/html/cgi_en/) has access to most generous core support.


Candidate requirements:
