Descripción de la oferta

The Gene Regulation Lab, an ICREA group at the IDIBAPS Research Institute (Barcelona, Spain) is looking for two postdocs to work on one of the projects in «Gene Regulation of Cellular Plasticity and Differentiation in Inflammation and Cancer». ZEB1 and ZEB2 play key roles in homeostasis and in different pathologies regulating stemness (in normal and cancer stem cells), cellularplasticityand differentiation, tissue regeneration, and
tumor initiation and progression. The successful candidates will work in a dynamic and international group on one of the several projects currently ongoing to study the role of ZEB factors in the regulation of cellular plasticity and differentiation in inflammation or cancer. All projects make use of a wide array of state-of-the-art techniques, and in vitro and in vivo approaches including unique transgenic mouse models and high-throughput and OMICs technologies.
