News: JOB OPENING: Junior Group Leader in the Areas of Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology or Modelling
The Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) is currently seeking a new Junior Group Leader in the areas of computational biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, or modelling to start an independent Research Group.
Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to: computational biology approaches to the study of plant and crop biology, and the development of network analyses and mathematical modelling of biological processes. Examples include computational modelling of regulatory and metabolic networks, modelling of biological systems, or integrative analysis of -omics data for understanding biological processes, and the development of software methods and tools for the analyses of large-scale molecular data. A track record of applying these approaches to plant and crop biology (developmental processes, stress responses, metabolism, etc.) is preferred. It is expected that the new research line will create synergies with the current Research Programs at CRAG (www.cragenomica.es/research-programs). Our main criterion is scientific excellence and we favour projects with a potential for high impact. Candidates are expected to develop an independent research line at the highest level.
What CRAG offers
CRAG is committed to provide new group leaders with the best possible support to successfully develop their careers. The successful candidate will receive office and equipped laboratory space to host her/his research team, personnel support and financial aid.
Appointment level and salary will depend on the profile of the successful candidate. The successful candidate will be employed in compliance with Spanish legislation and regulations under a full-time contract and will receive the benefits of the Spanish Social Security system covering sickness, maternity/paternity leaves and injuries at work.
This position will be initially funded by the Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence award.
