The González lab at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF), which focuses on understanding how organisms adapt to the environment, is seeking a lab technician to join their research team. You can read more about this position – with a starting date around February 2017 – here.
You can read a bit about the lab’s citizen science project “Melanogaster: Catch the fly!” in this post.
And here you can see a post about a recent publication of the lab where they discovered several naturally occurring independent transposable element insertions in the promoter region of a cold-stress response gene in the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster.
They are currently seeking up to five people to set up the CRG-EBI operation, a joint program with the European Bioinformatics Institute (www.ebi.ac.uk) to explore and develop joint services based around human sequences and genotypes, in particular those associated with phenotype information. The openings are for a Team Leader, a Senior IT Technician and three IT support-staff. Please check the job offer.
Additional offers are for a Computational Scientist at the CRG/UPF Proteomics Unit in Barcelona, one postdoctoral position at the laboratory of Dr. Salvador Aznar Benitah, group leader of Epithelial Homeostasis and Cancer, within the programme of Gene Regulation, Stem Cells and Cancer, and a Bioinformatician position at the laboratory of Dr. Luis Serrano, group leader of Design of Biological Systems, within the programme of Systems Biology.
A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Pedro Carvalho at the CRG. The Organelle biogenesis and homeostasis lab studies the molecular mechanisms by which misfolded secretory and membrane proteins are detected and eliminated from cells. The succesful candidate will work on protein quality control.
Application deadline is February, 29, 2012. Starting date would be no later than May 2012.

Miguel Beato’s laboratory at the CRG on chromatin and gene expression is looking for a bioinformatician to give support to the members of the CONSOLIDER project “Epigenetic: Mechanisms and Disease”. The work would consist in developing and applying existing and newly developed bioinformatic and statistical tools to analyze genome-wide data (3C-derived methods, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, MNase-seq, DNase I hypersensitive sites, CpG methylation and hydroxy-methylation assays) in cultured cells.
Application deadline is February 20, 2012. Initial contract is for six months starting March 2012, with the possibility of extension into a more stable position.
