The Institute

The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) is a core-funded interdisciplinary institute with strengths encompassing genomics, systems, computational, cell and molecular biology. CRG has two main areas of interest in its strategic plan: Quantitative Biology and Medical genomics. 

Currently we are looking to recruit outstanding junior group leaders in both CRG strategic areas.

Specific areas of interest include: 

  • Quantitative approaches to understand the dynamics of fundamental cell biology processes, and/or genetic mechanisms of disease or regeneration, using model systems such as organoids, organ-on-a-chip and other innovative models.
  • Development and application of new technologies including machine learning/artificial intelligence, quantitative imaging at the molecular or tissue scale, spatial genomics, massively parallel genetics, and/or computational algorithms applied to biotechnology, genetics and medicine.
  • Engineering of biological systems including generative and synthetic biology. 

The CRG is located at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB) with six other research institutes, including the newly created Outstation of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). In addition, the CRG's National Centre for Genomic Analysis (CNAG, www.cnag.cat) is located at the Barcelona Science Park (PCB). The CRG consists of 400 scientists, and is organised into five research programmes supported by high-end core facilities covering proteomics, genomics, bioinformatics, microscopy, FACs, iPS and organoids, and protein expression. The CRG hosts one of the two nodes of the European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA, https://ega-archive.org) and is affiliated to the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST, https://bist.eu/).

In April 2021, the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) received the renewal of the 'HR Excellence in Research' Award from the European Commission. This is a recognition of the Institute's commitment to developing an HR Strategy for Researchers, designed to bring the practices and procedures in line with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter and Code).
