PhD position in Spermatology and Epigenetics

The Group of Comparative Molecular Physiology from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), located in the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (IBB) from Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), is recruiting a highly motivated PhD student for a research project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICINN) entitled “Biomarking the fish sperm epigenome and molecular cargo for a sustainable aquaculture”. The objective of the project is the identification of epigenetic marks and paternal molecules as candidate biomarkers of sperm quality to evaluate the fertilization success and offspring viability in fish, using the zebrafish and gilthead seabream as model organisms.
