Descripción de la oferta

We are looking for highly motivated candidates interested in applying for Juan de la Cierva contracts following the bases and requirements of the call (B.O.E. of December 11, 2023), the details of which appear in the link indicated. This competitive contract has a duration of 2 years.


The candidates would join the group of Drs. Inmaculada Navarro and Catalina Ribas “Cellular communication in homeostasis and different pathologies through new Gq-GPCR signaling nodes” at the Severo Ochoa Molecular Biology Center (CBMSO). (https://www.cbm.uam.es/cribas)

The research project will be aimed at the study of «Identification of new therapeutic targets in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) through the modulation of Gq-GPCR signaling pathways»

Our group aims to understand the molecular bases that allow transducing the mechanical stimuli imposed by the composition and organization of the tumor stroma on the regulation of autophagy, a fundamental metabolic control pathway in most tumors, and which is especially relevant in oral tumors. By combining biochemical and exosome biology techniques, the use of high-resolution microscopy and different 2D and 3D migration/invasion systems, combined with animal models with altered Gαq expression, we will try to identify new targets and therapeutic strategies against to this type of tumors

Perfil buscado

Previous experience in molecular and cellular biology and mouse models will be highly valued. Those interested should send, as soon as possible, their CV, a description of their research experience and, if possible, letters of reference, to Drs. Inmaculada Navarro (ilerida@cbm.csic.es) and Catalina Ribas (cribas@cbm.csic.es)
