Research Description

A position is available in the recently-established Transcriptional Dynamics in Leukemia lab led by Dr Sergi Cuartero. Using a combination of genome-wide approaches, advanced microscopy imaging, and single-cell technologies, the team investigates how mutations in epigenetic modifiers and transcription factors contribute to leukaemia development. We are located in the brand-new building of the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC), a top research institute in the Barcelona area, and a highly stimulating scientific environment.

We are seeking a Bioinformatic Specialist Technician to join the Transcriptional Dynamics in Leukemia lab. We are located in the brand-new building of the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC), a top research institute in the Barcelona area and a highly stimulating scientific environment. The team investigates how transcriptional regulators and chromatin modifiers contribute to normal and malignant blood cell differentiation. The tasks of the Specialist Technician will involve analyzing epigenomic and transcriptomic data generated in the lab with the goal of uncovering novel mechanisms of transcriptional regulation in haematopoietic development.

Who we are?

Our mission is to carry out research into the basic, epidemiological, preventive, clinical and translational aspects of leukaemia and other hematologic malignancies.

The vision of the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute is that research will identify new therapeutic targets and enable us to develop more precise and less aggressive treatments.  We aspire to understand the origin and development of leukaemia and other malignant haematological pathologies in order to be able to prevent them.  We will work for a future in which all leukaemias will be curable.

The European Commission awarded the IJC the HR Excellence seal in July 2019. The IJC continues to work to maintain its policies in line with the Charter and Code principles.

The HRS4R has the main objective of ensuring that research centers of excellence implement and respect the requirements of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for hiring researchers (from here on referred to as the Charter and Code) within their human resources policies.

This EC initiative aims to promote training, professional development, and mobility for all European scientists.  The IJC supports these values and principles, which will not only serve to strengthen its internal policies but will actively stimulate excellent research and firmly situate the organization as an institution with a stimulating working environment that favors the development of its scientists.
