POSTDOCTORAL CANDIDATE INTERESTED IN APPLYING FOR A MSCA-IF IN NEUROSCIENCES
Non-coding RNAs in neurological conditions
Are you a postdoctoral researcher thinking about your next career move? The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) are a great option if you are an experienced researcher looking to give your career a boost by working abroad.
Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona allows you to work in a first class research environment while benefitting from an attractive salary to cover living, travel and family costs.
Group and project information
Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) generally act as gene expression regulators; and are particularly abundant and diverse in the brain, showing highly dynamic and specific expression patterns. The accurate expression pattern of ncRNAs is fundamental for the correct function of the nervous system and deregulation of ncRNA pathways underlies human disease. Our hypothesis is that the ncRNA profiles reflect in a very precise manner fine-tuned changes in neuronal sates.
Our lab has been working for more than 10 years in the understanding of disease-driven deregulation of ncRNAs and their role in neuronal dysfunction. Major current challenges in translational biomedicine that are the core research of the lab are (i) to evaluate the potential of ncRNAs as disease-specific, peripheral non-invasive biomarkers and (ii) to understand the functional and pathogenic relevance of these species, which may help to unravel disease mechanisms and identify therapeutic targets.
We perform these activities using state-of-the art functional genomics approaches, in mouse models and cell cultures. We have also strong expertise in RNA-seq data mining algorithms to detect candidate ncRNA species. We develop these activities in a network of national and international collaborations to address multidisciplinary aspects of RNA biology in Neurosciences.
The applicant will work in the Department of Biomedicine, with multidisciplinary research teams tackling different aspects of Neurosciences. This very friendly environment provides a number of different theoretical skills and experimental expertise as well as it gathers many young and successful research leaders.
Applicants will be integrated into the research group “Functional Genomics of Neurodegenerative Diseases”; (P.I. Eulàlia Martí).
Functions and tasks
The applicant Is expected to lead a project focused on the identification of ncRNA species early deregulated in neurodegeneration paradigms and understand their involvement in disease evolution. The applicant will participate in activities such as staff meetings and seminar
Requirements for candidates:
- PhD or equivalent (Recognised Researcher R2)
- Strong expertise in molecular and cell biology
- Candidates must fulfilled eligibility MSCA criteria described in the Guide for Applicants
- Full time temporary contract
- Gross salary of about € 50,000
- Duration: ranging from 12 to 36 months depending on the typology of the fellow
- Starting date: flexible from beginning of May 2021
Support for candidates
The Institute of Neurosciences and the International Research Projects Office at the University of Barcelona could offer you:
- A travel grant to work on your proposal with your future supervisor
- Course on “How to work a successful MSCA IF”
- Personalized support on the application
- Support on other national calls such as Beatriu de Pinós and Junior Leader
- Personalized mentoring
