    We are the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS), Faculty of Science, Radboud University (Nijmegen, Netherlands), consisting of the Departments of Molecular Biology, Molecular Developmental Biology and Cell Biology. The overarching research theme of our institute is to understand gene regulation and epigenetics in health and disease using state-of-the-art genomics, single-cell analysis, proteomic technologies and bioinformatics. We offer a first-class international and culturally diverse research environment and opportunities for personal development. We encourage female researchers and scientists from underrepresented groups to apply, and offer tailor-made mentoring programmes.

    We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to foster interdisciplinary collaboration within the Faculty of Science (in the context of the newly formed Interdisciplinary Research Centre).
