Our project: Functional analysis of mitotic chromate decondensation.

In metazoan, at the beginning of mitosis chromatin condenses massively into visible light microscopic chromosomes and decondensates in telophase to restore the chromatin state of the interphase, which is competent for transcription and replication. We analyze the molecular mechanisms of chromatin condensation using biochemical and cellular assays. In in vitro reconstitution systems, we unearth the crucial steps of chromatin packaging cell-free and identify and characterize key factors, see, eg, Magalska et al, Dev Cell 31: 305-318. With the help of Life Cell Imaging, we investigate the process in cells and their interaction with other cell processes such as spindle degradation, rebuilding of the nucleus in telophase or nuclear transport.


our range


The position is to be filled at the earliest possible time and limited to three years on a project basis. 

This is a full time position. On request, a part-time employment can be made possible.
