We are looking for candidates to request a Juan de la Cierva formación contract (see bases here) to develop a scientific career within the Nutrigenomics and Fish Growth Endocrinology Group (www.nutrigroup-iats.org) led by Dr. Jaume Pérez Sánchez at the Institute of Aquaculture Torre la Sal (IATS- CSIC). The work will be conducted within the framework of National and H2020 EU Projects (PerformFISH AquaIMPACT, AQUAEXCEL3) to characterize phenotypically and functionally the interaction of farmed fish with its environment, using new biotechnological and genomic tools. The expected outcome is to produce more robust and efficient fish by means of integrative approaches based on the use of new few additives, strict criteria of welfare, genetic selection and nutritional/environmental programming.
The candidates should have defended their thesis between January 1st 2018 and the 31st December 2019.
Experience in nutrition, physiology, molecular biology and bioinformatics will be valued.
Interested candidates contact Dr. Jaume Pérez-Sánchez (email@example.com) before the 5 January 2020 including a CV and up to 2 reference letters.
