IRB Barcelona seeks
Applications are invited for the position of Functional Genomics Core Facility (FGC) Manager.
The FGC provides the Institute and the research community with cutting-edge services that include tools for genomic analysis and alteration of gene expression.
The FGC Manager will be in charge of the scientific management of the services and projects undertaken in the facility. Activities include overseeing and developing services, coordinating staff conducting the service projects, interpreting and communicating results, as well as developing technology and participating in the implementation of novel processes and procedures. The manager is expected to be involved in the strategic planning of new developments based on the needs of the institute’s research community.
The FGC’s main mission is to provide support to the IRB Barcelona research community; however, other activities include the promotion of synergies and collaborations at the local, national and particularly at the international levels. Experience with next-generation sequencing platforms, current analytical platforms, and associated informatics and computational skills is required. In addition, strong communication skills, a service-based orientation, and prior and solid managerial experience with a core facility or similar service are essential.
Salary and conditions are competitive and commensurate with experience.
