Postdoctoral Fellow in Stem Cell and Cancer Group (ref. PD/21/24)
A) RESEARCH LABORATORIES · Barcelona
Created in 2005 by the Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia) and the University of Barcelona, IRB Barcelona is a Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence--a seal that was awarded in 2011.
The institute is devoted to conducting research of excellence in biomedicine and to transferring results to clinical practice, thus improving people’s quality of life, while simultaneously promoting the training of outstanding researchers, technology transfer, and public communication of science. Its 27 laboratories and seven core facilities address basic questions in biology and are orientated to diseases such as cancer, metastasis, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and rare conditions.
IRB Barcelona is an international centre that hosts 400 members and 30 nationalities. It is located in the Barcelona Science Park. IRB Barcelona forms part of the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) and the "Xarxa de Centres de Recerca de Catalunya" (CERCA).
IRB Barcelona seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join as soon as possible the Stem Cell and Cancer group (Dr. Salvador Aznar Benitah). The project will involve studying how metabolic alterations affect tumor immunity. This project is financed PLEC2021-007654 / MCIN/AEI / 10.13039/501100011033 and by the European Commission "NextGenerationEU"/PRTR".
The Stem Cell and Cancer group aims at understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying the spatiotemporal regulation of adult stem cells in the healthy tissue, and how these are deregulated during ageing and cancer. We have a particular interest in understanding how tissues communicate during homeostasis and how cancer cells systemically alter distant tissue function to their own advantage. To do so, we combine high-throughput bulk, single cell, and spatial genomics and proteomic data with in vivo models. The successful candidate will be involved in the analysis of the data from different projects, but very importantly in contributing to the conceptual development of the project.
