The Institute

The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) is an international biomedical research institute of excellence, based in Barcelona, Spain, with more than 400 scientists from 44 countries. The CRG is composed by an interdisciplinary, motivated and creative scientific team which is supported both by a flexible and efficient administration and by high-end and innovative technologies.

In April 2021, the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) received the renewal of the 'HR Excellence in Research' Award from the European Commission. This is a recognition of the Institute's commitment to developing an HR Strategy for Researchers, designed to bring the practices and procedures in line with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter and Code).

The role

We are looking to cover a position in computational science for analysis of biological data. Specifically we are looking to identify a computational scientist to analyse genomic data to identify master regulators of retinal regeneration.


About the lab

Our laboratory, the Reprogramming and Regeneration Laboratory, is studying the mechanisms controlling somatic cell reprogramming and tissue regeneration. In particular, we are studying how the Wnt/b-catenin signalling pathway controls these processes, and how cell-fusion-mediated cellular reprogramming contributes to tissue regeneration and homeostasis. We tackle these questions with different approaches and through different disciplines, which range from the nanoscale level of observation of cell functions, up to the whole mouse organ.
