Descripción de la oferta

Ana Muñoz Manchado’s lab is looking for a highly motivated, curious, and creative researcher interested in applying for competitive Juan de la Cierva fellowship to carry out a 2-year postdoctoral project focused on:
Our multidisciplinary and recently established group at the University of Cadiz and INiBICA (https://inibica.es/co23-genetica-y-enfermedades-neurodegenerativas/) is focused on understanding the underlying genetic mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases. Currently, we have different lines of investigation:

Understanding Parkinson’s disease pathology with cell type specificity. We apply single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) in both postmortem human samples and disease models to decipher the main genetic programs underlying the disease.

Delineating the role of the striatum brain area in neurodegeneration. We compare scRNA-seq data from different nervous system disorders to define the specific genetic pathways involved and apply spatial transcriptomics to also define the anatomical differences.

Perfil buscado

Applicant’s profile:
Ph.D. in Biology, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Medical Engineer, Genetics or a related field.
Experience in data analysis and with the Linux operating system.
Proficiency with Python, Bash scripting, and R.
