SENIOR POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCHER IN TOXICOLOGY, BIOSTATICS AND MICROBIOME ANALYSES

The Rovira i Virgili University (URV) grants for Spanish university system requalification under the Maria de Zambrano call is seeking 17 talented international senior post-doctoral researchers.  TecnATox (www.tecnatox.cat) is one of the oldest multidisciplinary consolidated group of URV and a pioneer research group in Spain and Europe in the area of human health risk assessment derived from the exposure to environmental agents. We work in a wide range of experimental methods in toxicology, genetics, molecular and cell biology, and animal models. Our research area of System Toxicology provides unique and focused research in Chemo-informatics and Systems biology including a broad range of in silico tools for environmental and human health risk assessment including specialized tissue dosimetry (physiologically-based kinetic models), translational models (IVIVE, QIVIVE, inter-species scaling), QSAR, quantitative AOPs and Systems biology models. Similarly, research group in Nutrition and Metabolic Diseases has an International recognized experience in the field of human nutrition and non-communicable health diseases, mainly obesity, T2D, CVD and more recently mental Health and cognitive decline. Researchers from the group are currently involved in several national and international studies to evaluate the role on human microbiome on health and disease, and to integrate microbiome data with metabolomics and epigenetics. 

TecnATox is seeking expression of interest from suitable candidates to work with multidisciplinary team of System Toxicology and/or Nutrition and metabolomics groups TecnATox, at the University Rovira i Virgili.
