Functions:

The selected candidate will support scientific and research work in order to develop an ongoing investigation. This work will include analysis of genomics and scRNAseq data, to look for scientific information in the vascular biology field, the use of mice as experimental model and to perform experiments using different techniques including microdissection, histology, confocal microscopy and flow cytometry.

Mandatory requirements:

  • B.S. in the life sciences area.

Evaluable experience:

  • Experience in the vascular biology field and in working with mice as a model (it will be valued according to the number of years or fraction).
  • Experience with the integrative analysis of transcriptomics and proteomics data (it will be valued according to the number of years or fraction).
  • Experience in using and developing genetic mosaics mouse models (it will be valued according to the number of years or fraction and known techniques).
  • Experience with microscopy and flow cytometry (it will be valued according to the number of years or fraction and known techniques).
  • Experience with advanced molecular biology techniques (qRT-PCR, RNAseq analysis) (qPCR, RNAseq analysis…) (it will be valued according to the number of years or fraction and known techniques).
  • Interview. (Part or the entire interview will be done in English)

We offer:

  • Consolidated Research Center of international scientific relevance.
  • Part time (27h/week)
