FOUR pre-doctoral positions are available in the group of Pura Muñoz-Cánoves at the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (Cell Biology Unit), in the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), Barcelona, Spain.

We study the mechanisms underlying the decline of stem cell regenerative potential with aging, and in particular the failure in proteostasis and entry into senescence of aging stem cells, as well as potential mechanisms to reverse these aging-associated defects.

 

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a B.S. in Life Sciences (minimum score 8,5) and Master in Biomedical Sciences (minimum score 8,5). The most likely successful candidates will have excellent previous experience in cellular and molecular biology. Previous stages in other laboratories will be highly valued.
