Additional Information

Research Description 

The team of José Luis Sardina at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute is looking for a highly motivated Junior Postdoctoral Researcher.

Epigenetic Control of Haematopoiesis Group is working to uncover the molecular mechanisms governing blood cell fate decisions, with a special interest in those leading to the onset and development of myeloid malignancies. To address this goal, they are combining transcriptome (by RNA-seq) and epigenome profiling (by WG(ox)BS-seq, ATAC-seq and ChIP-seq for histone marks) of primary blood samples with in-depth molecular studies (by CRISPR/Cas9 (epi)genome editing) in unique models of experimentally induced blood cell fate conversions.

Who we are? 

Our mission is to carry out research into the basic, epidemiological, preventive, clinical and translational aspects of leukemia 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 leukemias and other malignant hematological pathologies in order to be able to prevent them.  We will work for a future in which all leukemias 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. 

IJC is an equal opportunity employer. We evaluate qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and other legally protected characteristics.
