We are looking for postdoctoral candidates interested in joining the Protein Folding and Conformational Diseases Lab at the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine in the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (http://ibb.uab.cat/ibb/). The candidates should apply for a 2-year fellowship within programs Juan de la Cierva Formación (225 grants, deadline: 10/2/2016) or Juan de la Cierva Incorporación (225 grants, deadline: 8/2/2016). Provided that these two calls are highly competitive, we can only consider candidates with at least one publication as a first author in a high impact journal. Only EU citizens are eligible in these calls. The candidates selected by our group would have to apply to the calls through the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO) webpage. In case of being selected by MINECO for one of the fellowships, the expected starting period will be end of 2016, beginning of 2017.
Our group combines computational and experimental approaches, including biophysics, molecular and cell biology to address the molecular determinants of protein folding and aggregation in conformational disorders and how they can be remediated. Applications should be addressed to Salvador Ventura (firstname.lastname@example.org) and should include C.V., a motivation letter and the contact details of three referees.
