PhD position at the IBMB-CSIC, Barcelona

Laboratory of Development of the Spinal Cord in health and disease


We are looking for: Enthusiastic researchers with a BSc or Master Degree in biomedical sciences with interest in Developmental Neurobiology. Good academic records are required, as well as good spoken and written command of English.

 We offer: A highly multidisciplinary and competitive training programme in biomedical research. Access to state-of-the-art infrastructures.

The selected candidate will investigate growth of the central nervous system and associated primary microcephaly, with the aim to understand the mechanisms that control cell numbers and brain size at birth. We recently demonstrated that the activity of classical growth factors such as Sonic hedgehog and BMPs is required for the expansion of the pool of neural progenitors by maintaining symmetric divisions. We are now combining high resolution imaging and data from transcriptomics and functional genetics, to describe the mechanisms downstream these growth factors that regulate neural stem cell maintenance.

Those interested please send CV, a cover letter justifying the interest of the applicant in the project, and the names of two referees to
