Senior Research Officer-Histopathology Core Facility (ref. CF/24/01)

IRB Barcelona is seeking a motivated scientific biomedical professional (veterinarian, biologist, biotechnologist or from a similar area of knowledge) with proven skills in molecular pathology, experimental pathology, spatial biology and image analysis to cover a position in the Histopathology Facility.


Provide expertise and drive ideas in molecular pathology, spatial biology, digital pathology solutions and methods to support Immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunofluorescence (IF), multiplex IF and in-situ hybridization (ISH) pathology studies.
Molecular pathology: lead the development of assays for the investigation of new targets and disease biomarkers of human diseases - antibody based immunofluorescence tissue assays (IHC, IF, multiplexing assays) and fluorescent in-situ hybridization (FISH) techniques.
Computerized pathology: Use of the different image analysis tools and interpretation of the tissue data. Able to build new solutions and challenges in biomedical image and spatial biology.
Integrate the information obtained by molecular, image analysis and spatial assays with other experimental pathology data.


Must Have – Required:

PhD, postdoc or Master in Veterinary, Biology, Biotechnology degree or equivalent with proven experience in a laboratory of pathology, biomedicine or similar. Diplomate of the European or American College of Veterinary Pathologists (DECVP or DACVP) would be a plus but not required.

Strong interpersonal and teamwork skills
Proven collaboration and communication skills
Self-motivated, pro-activity and eager to drive innovation in the area of molecular pathology
Fluent English (written and oral)
Informatics and Statisticals skills


Experience: Experience in spatial biology immunofluorescence, digital pathology and image analysis and related methods. Rodent necropsy and sample collection. FELASA accreditation.
Knowledge: Histopathology of animal models of human diseases.
Skills: Custom orientation
