The Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (CNIC) is a public research institute dedicated to excellence in cardiovascular research and to translating new knowledge into real improvements in clinical practice. This modern building is equipped with the latest scientific equipment, including state-of-the-art imaging technologies, and a comprehensive research-support infrastructure.

The CNIC is considering applications for a Postdoctoral researcher for the Functional Genomics Group by Miguel Manzanares Fourcade. How the genome is co-ordinately regulated during development is one of the major unanswered questions in modern biology. The Functional Genomics Group is exploring this issue by means of comparative and functional approaches, with the aim of understanding how gene regulatory networks were assembled during evolution and how this determines their function.
