Functions:

The selected candidate will conduct scientific and research work in order to develop an ongoing investigation in the field of vascular biology. This work will include using in vivo genetic models of cardiovascular disease, to perform experiments using different techniques including microdissection, histology, confocal microscopy and flow cytometry analysis. In addition, bioinformatic and computational analysis expertise will be required in the fields of genomics, scRNAseq data and high-throughput image data analysis.

Mandatory requirements:

  • PhD in the life sciences.
  • Five or more years of research experience.
  • International experience (at least more than 3 years of research experience outside of Spain).
  • Not having exhausted more than five years of the maximum time established for access to contracts of the Spanish system of science, technology and innovation in accordance with article 22 of the "Ley de la Ciencia”.

Valuable Requirements:

  • Experience in the vascular biology field and in working with mice as a model, including experience in angiogenesis models and the analysis of cardiovascular function in developmental and disease settings (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 image analysis and Fiji script development and in the use of genetic mosaics mouse models (it will be valued according to the number of years, related publications, known techniques or fraction).
  • Experience with advanced microscopy and flow cytometry (it will be valued according to the number of years, publications, known techniques or fraction).
  • Experience with advanced molecular biology techniques (DNA cloning, including BAC/Plasmid cloning, qRT-PCR, it will be valued according to the number of years, publications, or fraction).
  • Interview. (Part or the entire interview will be done in English)

We offer:

  • Consolidated Research Center of international scientific relevance.
  • Access to an infrastructure and advanced technologies.
  • Integration into an excellent scientific environment.
  • Immediate incorporation.
  • Postdoctoral research contract to access the Spanish system of Science and Technology, as long as the selected candidate complies with the legal requirements for the formalization of the contract in accordance with the Spanish labor law.

Selection Plan:

At least the three candidates with the highest score will be interviewed as long as they reach the minimum of 70 points as a sum of criteria (C1 - C5). The candidate with the highest score will be hired given the total score (C1 - C6) is at least 85 points.
