Postdoctoral Fellows in Stem Cell Biology

Ref. PD/22/13

IRB Barcelona is seeking Postdoctoral fellows to join the Quantitative Stem Cell Dynamics lab (www.fraticellilab.com) as part of the project MemOriStem, “Origins and Consequences of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Memories” in the Horizon Europe Program of the European Research Council (ERC). Agreement ref.: 101042992.

The Quantitative Stem Cell Dynamics lab focuses on understanding stem cell heterogeneity and applying this knowledge for the betterment of human health. The lab has been recently awarded an ERC Starting Grant, MemOriStem, to study causes and consequences of stem cell memory.

The selected candidates will develop cutting edge genetic mouse models and apply these tools to study stem cell heterogeneity in regeneration and aging through implementation of single-cell genomics technologies. The tasks require advanced knowledge of molecular biology, genetics and epigenetics, cell culture, animal experiments and flow cytometry, as well as advanced statistical analysis of data outputs.

Ideal candidates will have a strong theoretical background in stem cell biology, hematopoiesis, epigenetics and immunology. The candidates must be capable of communicating effectively in verbal and written English, and they should have excellent organizational skills.

The candidates should also have the willingness to mentor and collaborate with other researchers in the group (in English), and the ability to multitask across various duties within this project. Applications from underrepresented minorities is particularly encouraged.
