CRG has been conferred with a badge of ‘HR Excellence in Research’ by the European Commission, in recognition to its progress in implementing the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for Recruitment of Researchers, that among others consists of transparent, merit-based recruitment procedures and attractive work-life balance working conditions. For further information: www.crg.eu The role A one-year position is open for a computational technician at the CRG/UPF Proteomics Unit in Barcelona. The successful applicant will become a part of an international team of scientists, which is working closely with scientists at the Parc de Recerca Biomèdica de Barcelona. The applicant will work on the development, upgrade and maintenance of the QCloud web interface (http://qcloud.crg.eu), a cloud-based quality control system for proteomics experiments. The duties associated with the position will include creating interactive charts with Plotly.js libraries (or similar), and the implementation of several aspects to increase the current functionality of QCloud (e.g. the automatic registration of new users and instruments, among others). We are looking for highly motivated and organized candidates with previous experience in mass spectrometry, proteomics or similar analytical techniques. Candidates must have good communication skills, capable of working in a group, and with a high degree of work autonomy. About the team/ lab/ department The goal of the Proteomics Unit is to provide proteomic services to internal and external users, and to further develop mass spectrometry-based quantitative techniques so that proteomics becomes a set of robust, sensitive, accurate and precise methods that enable not only the generation of research hypotheses but also their subsequent validation in complex biological systems. The Unit is involved in several international collaborations both with individual researchers and research initiaves and consortia, and it has been part of the European Project PrimeXS infrastructure that gathered together the best European proteomics laboratories and platforms to spread proteomics access and tools to the international community. Moreover, the Proteomics Unit is also part of the "Plataforma de Recursos Biomoleculares y Bioinformáticos" and "ProteoRed" of the Instituto de Salud Carlos III, part of the Spanish National Health System.
