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 shares principles of an interdisciplinary, motivated and creative scientific team that is supported by high-end and innovative technologies and a flexible and efficient administration.

CRG has been conferred with a badge of ‘HR Excellence in Research’ by the European Commission, in recognition to its progress in implementing the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for Recruitment of Researchers, that among others consists of transparent, merit-based recruitment procedures and attractive work-life balance working conditions.

The role

The Surrey lab is interested in understanding the design principles of the intracellular architecture, focusing on the cytoskeleton. We study the organization of the cytoskeleton in in vitro reconstituted systems with purified proteins and in cultured living cells. The successful candidate will join an established group that will relocate to the CRG in autumn 2019.

The selected candidate will be responsible for lab management (lab organization, ordering, production of common reagents) and will assist other lab members with human cell culture, cloning, protein expressions in insect and human cells and protein purifications. In doing so, contributions to several projects going on in the lab will be made.

About the team/ lab/ department

The Intracellular Self-Organization Group is interested in elucidating the design principles of self-organizing intracellular structures. The focus is on understanding the function of the cytoskeleton. The group is led by Thomas Surrey who has made major contributions to microtubule cytoskeleton biochemistry and biophysics (e.g. Roostalu et al., Cell, 2018; Maurer et al., Cell 2012; Roostalu et al., Science, 2011; Bieling et al., Nature 2007). Advanced protein biochemistry and microscopy imaging are important methods in the lab. The overall goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms driving the reliable generation of distinct dynamic architectures of the cytoskeleton.
