Predoc

We are looking for a highly motivated predoctoral researcher as new members for our group.

The successful candidate will join an enthusiastic and collaborative team in an excellent multidisciplinary scientific environment. We are looking for applicants that will engage in bioinformatic data analysis to explore gene regulatory functions of insulin secreting cells in type 1 diabetes (for reference Ramos-Rodríguez et al.). The project will require the integration of single cell transcriptomic data and cutting edge 'omics techniques.

As part of the Pompeu Fabra University, the lab is located at the PRBB, one of the strongest scientific campuses in south Europe. With all the state-of-the-art research facilities necessary, PRBB offers an ideal scientific and international environment.

The position is open for students holding a master’s degree. Candidates need to prove a strong commitment to achieving research excellence and interest to conduct independent research.

The candidate will have experience in statistics and computer programming (mainly Python and/or R). Both computer science and biological/medical background are welcome, previous experience in the analysis of large scale genomic data will be evaluated positively. All courses, lectures and seminars are held in English. Thus, candidates have to be fluent in both written and spoken English.

Please send your CV, a brief description of your research and career interests and the contact of at least 1 referee at [email protected]

Deadline: Please submit your application by the 10th of September 2021.

Candidates will be shortlisted for an interview in September

Postdoc

At the Endocrine Regulatory Genomics Laboratory we are looking for a highly motivated researcher as new member of our group. 

The successful candidate will join an enthusiastic and collaborative team in an excellent multidisciplinary scientific environment. He/She will lead a project centered on genome regulation with the aim of understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying Type 1 diabetes as a follow up of recent studies from the group: Ramos-Rodríguez et al. Nature Genetics 2019 doi:10.1038/s41588-019-0524-6.

The project will involve the application of cutting edge molecular biology techniques. Candidates with both biological and/or medical background are welcome. An experience in molecular biology techniques and cell culture is expected. The project will mainly involve wet lab experiments and will require a close interaction with bioinformatic data scientists to interpret the outcome of the genomic experiments. Computational knowledge will be evaluated positively.

The position is open for candidates holding a PhD. Candidates need to prove a strong commitment to achieving research excellence and interest to conduct independent research. Candidates have to be fluent in both written and spoken English.

As part of the Pompeu Fabra University, the lab is located at the PRBB, one of the strongest scientific campuses in south Europe. With all the state-of-the-art research facilities necessary, PRBB offers an ideal scientific and international environment.

Please send your CV, a motivation letter and contact details of 2 referees to [email protected]
