The Neurogenomics Group of GRIB led by Gabriel Santpere is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the fields of biology or bioinformatics.


The candidate will perform functional genomics analyzes to study the evolution of human brain development and genetic risk of neuropsychiatric disorders using tissue and "single-cell" omic data.

Studies required:

PhD in the fields of biology or bioinformatics.

Experience and background:

The candidate must have experience in programming, statistics, single-cell, transcriptomics, epigenomics, molecular evolution. Background in neuroscience and/or comparative genomics will be an asset. Must have a high english level, written and spoken.

Position benefits:

This offer is funded by ‘Projecte Postdoctoral JuniorLeader Fellowships Programme Incoming - Becas La Caixa (2019-191259) (Ref.: 12866)’. We offer a full time contract (40 hrs/week), gross annual salary 22.980 eur.

All the qualifications requested must be included in the IMIM’s website application form to be evaluated. The degree or PhD requested must have been issued by a Spanish university or duly homologated by the Ministry of Education of Spain.

About the group

Research in the Neurogenomics group aims to gain insight into the evolutionary mechanisms leading to human brain specializations by means of functional genomics. By leveraging multiple sources of OMICS data at the bulk tissue and single-cell/nuclei level, together with multiple sequence alignments, the group focuses on identifying lineage-specific variants relevant for normal primate brain development as well as for human neuropsychiatric disorders and traits.
