Single Cell Genomics - Lab Technician

Updated: about 1 month ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 15 Nov 2021

The Institute

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 is composed by an interdisciplinary, motivated and creative scientific team which is supported both by a flexible and efficient administration and by high-end and innovative technologies.

In April 2021, the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) received the renewal of the 'HR Excellence in Research ' logo from the European Commission. This is a recognition of the Institute's commitment to developing an HR Strategy for Researchers, designed to bring the practices and procedures in line with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter and Code).

The role

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. The selected candidate will be responsible for sample preparation with established single-cell sequencing applications and the implementation of emerging sequencing protocols. The candidate will be involved in collaborative efforts with our research and clinical partners and the large-scale data production efforts of healthy and diseased human tissues.

About the team

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, genetic and epigenetic data from individual cells to elucidate causalities underlying phenotype formation. We successfully established sequencing protocols to quantify gene expression and epigenetic profiles of thousands of single cells. Our computational pipelines include methods to deconvolute tissue composition and track to transcriptional dynamics. The international team joins technical, computational and biological/clinical 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 lines on translational cancer research.
