Beca predoctoral en Biologí­a Vascular

Centro de Investigación Cardiovascular. CSIC-ICCC
 Contacto correo-e: crodriguezs@csic-iccc.org

The Vascular Biology Research Group at Cardiovascular Research Center (CSIC-ICCC) seeks for 2 highly motivated predoctoral students for applying to National Fellowship Programs. The position involves working with a trans-disciplinary team of scientists studying the pathophysiological basis underlying atherosclerosis
and other cardiovascular diseases such as abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Our group has been pioneer involving new genes in endothelial activation and atherosclerotic plaque
progression promoted by low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and other pro-atherogenic factors, as well as identifying
vasculoprotective mechanisms elicited by high-density lipoproteins (HDL). Our studies are focused in
the characterization of nuclear receptors and transcription factors involved in the onset and progression of
atherothrombotic disease and in the role of extracellular matrix modifying enzymes in atherosclerosis development
and aneurysm progression. The position involves working with transgenic animal models recently developed by our group and vascular cell cultures using molecular and cellular biology techniques.
Candidates with Bachelor degree in Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Pharmacy or similar and a good academic expedient are invited to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with previous experience in research.
