PREDOCTORAL POSITION IN VASCULAR BIOLOGY
The Group of Regulatory Mechanisms of Cardiovascular Remodeling in Experimental Pathology at Institut de Recerca del Hospital de Sant Pau (IRHSCSP) seeks for a highly motivated predoctoral student for applying to National Fellowship Programs. The position involves working with a trans-disciplinary team of scientists studying the pathophysiological basis underlying atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases.
Our group has been pioneer involving new genes in endothelial activation and atherosclerotic plaque progression. Our studies are focused in the characterization of nuclear receptors and transcription factors involved in the onset and progression of atherothrombotic disease and in the role of extracellular matrix modifying enzymes in atherosclerosis development and aneurysm progression. The position involves working with transgenic animal models recently developed by our group and vascular cell cultures using molecular and cellular biology techniques.
Candidates with Bachelor degree in Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Pharmacy or similar and a good academic expedient are invited to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with previous experience in research. Interested candidates should send a brief cover letter indicating his/her interest in the area, a CV and academic expedient by email to:
Dra Cristina Rodríguez (firstname.lastname@example.org) or
