Predoctoral Researcher - FPI fellowship (ref. PRE/21/05)

Application deadline:

IRB Barcelona seeks a motivated Predoctoral Researcher (FPI fellowship) for the Targeted protein degradation & Drug Discovery Lab led by Dr. Cristina Mayor-Ruiz. The successful candidate will be granted a FPI fellowship. The candidate should have a chemistry background ideally complemented with biology knowledge. Our lab pursues highly multidisciplinary and collaborative research at the interface of molecular biology, functional genetics, medicinal chemistry and bioinformatics. The successful candidate will develop and apply cutting-edge technology for biomedical research in the growing field of dimerizers (drugs that endow protein neofunctions by inducing proximity between proteins, e.g. degraders). She/he is expected to have good university grades in chemistry and biomedical related fields. Experience in chemistry is paramount. Experience in cell biology, biochemistry or chemical biology (through master research projects or equivalent) would be greatly valued. Enthusiasm for research, commitment and independence would be an asset.
