The Comparative Genomics Group in the Comparative and Computational Genomics program of the IBE (http://www.ibe.upf-csic.es/) is willing to incorporate a PhD student / research support with an experimental background starting on June 2018.
The group is located at the Evolutionary Biology Unit of the Pompeu Fabra University (http://www.upf.edu) and is part of the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (http://www.prbb.org), a renowned centre for Biomedical research that hosts, besides the University, other institutions such as the CRG (Centre for Genomic Regulation) or the CMRB (Barcelona’s Centre for Regenerative Medicine). All these organizations share a thrilling and dynamic scientific atmosphere, driven by leading groups in fields such as bioinformatics, molecular biology and evolution. The PRBB is located close to Barcelona’s City Centre (right in front of the beach).
Candidates should hold a Master´s degree (or equivalent) in Biology or similar. Candidates with very strong experimental background, preferably in next-generation sequence methods (Illumina) are especially encouraged to apply.
