The project will be aimed at understanding some of the most important molecular and cellular mechanisms of angiogenesis and their relevance in cancer and cardiovascular disease. We use novel mouse genetic tools, advanced imaging techniques and the latest technologies in OMICs profiling.
Some of our research in the last years: (Nature Comm. Pontes-Quero et al., 2019; Nature Comm. Fernandez-Chacon et al., 2019; Cell Pontes-Quero et al., 2017; Circulation Research Rocha et al, 2014; Development Ehling et al., 2013; Embo J. Wang et al., 2013; Nature Benedito et al., 2012; Cell Benedito et al., 2009). For more information, please visit our website.
The CNIC is among the best research institutes in Spain. It has received the Excellence Severo-Ochoa prize twice, and has dedicated personnel, facilities and resources to carry out world leading biomedical research. You will have the opportunity to work and interact with leading scientists in the cardiovascular biology field.
PhD candidates should have a Master degree and a high academic grade (higher than 8/10). Postdoctoral candidates should have at least one first-author publication at the date of incorporation. We are seeking highly motivated future scientists. Strong interest in molecular biology, mouse models and cell biology is desired. Good communication skills in oral and written English are essential.
Applicants should send a cover letter with a short summary of CV, the academic grades/publications, and the names and contact details of two references to Rui.firstname.lastname@example.org before 15th December 2019.
