The Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG-CRG) is one of the largest Genome Sequencing Centers in Europe. CNAG-CRG researchers participate in major International Genomic Initiatives such as the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), the International Human Epigenome Consortium (IHEC), the International Rare Diseases Research Consortium (IRDiRC) and the European Infrastructure for life-science information (ELIXIR), as well as in several EU-funded projects.
It is integrated with the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), 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 candidate will be integrated in the Single Cell Genomics Team, a highly collaborative, international work environment with well-experienced colleagues in single-cell data production and analysis. He/she will be responsible for sample preparation of single-cell RNA sequencing applications. The candidate will be in charge of the data production for large-scale internal and collaborative research projects, involving responsibilities for sample management and quality control.
About the team/ lab/ department
The Single Cell Genomics Team at the CNAG-CRG is dedicated to advance genome research of single cells. The mission of the group is the implementation of single-cell sequencing technologies and their application in a research and translational context. The group focuses on the systematic integration of transcriptional data from individual cells to elucidate causalities underlying phenotype formation. We successfully established sequencing protocols to quantify gene expression of thousands of single cells. Our newly developed computational pipelines include methods to deconvolute tissue composition and track to transcriptional dynamics. Our international team joins computational, technical and biological knowledge in order to establish and apply best practices in single-cell research. The group combines collaborative research, development activities and follows an independent research line on translational cancer research. We are member of the Human Cell Atlas Project.
