The Hnisz Lab

Max Planck Institute for

Molecular Genetics

We discover and investigate principles and mechanisms for selective activation and repression of genes that play essential roles in development and disease 
The laboratory of 

Enhancerology

Cancer biology

Biophysics and computational biology

Building and testing interdisciplinary gene control models based on principles of soft matter physics

Interrogating the roles of gene dysregulation in cancer to discover new therapeutic concepts

PRECISION GENE CONTROL

Investigating mechanisms of gene control by transcriptional enhancers and their bound factors

We are looking for motivated postdocs / PhD students to join a multidisciplinary team exploring uncharted scientific territory.  Applicants of any background or discipline (physics, chemistry, biology, computational science) are welcome.
