The Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC) is a nonprofit research institute based in Badalona and dedicated to advancing our understanding about leukemia and related disorders, in partnership with the University of Barcelona and Autonomous University of Barcelona. The IJC has laboratories in three clinical campuses: i) Clinic Hospital, ii) Sant Pau Hospital and iii) ICO-GTIP. The IJC serves as a collaborative hub for basic investigators and physicians to work together on fundamental biological and clinical aspects of leukemia. The IJC offers an excellent working environment built around an excellent environment and state-of-the-art facilities.
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 favours the development of its scientists.
IJC is an equal opportunity employer. We evaluate qualified applicants without regard to race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and other legally protected characteristics.
Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC) is working to become a reference institute to apply precision medicine to leukaemia using different OMICs approaches. The aim of IJC is to promote a competitive proteomics facility that gives support for translational research.
Proteomics techniques have been successfully applied in translational medicine studies and help move towards personalized medicine. Our proteomics unit is involved in various biomedical research areas, giving both scientific and technological support to internal and external researchers and clinicians.
To have access to state-of-the-art technology, we have a collaboration agreement with some public institutions that belong to the Proteomics Spanish Society (ProteoRed – ISCIII).
