Embryologist at the Bioengineering in Reproductive Health Research Group

Application Deadline: 30/09/2019
Ref: LT-SO

The Bioengineering in Reproductive Health Group group at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) offers a Laboratory Technician position for an experienced embryologist to develop a project in collaboration with the industry.

The project involves testing the effects of different culture media reagents on mouse and human embryos in culture.

Our laboratory is a multidisciplinary environment where biologists, biophysicists, clinicians and business developers synergize to create a unique environment shaped by science and entrepreneurship. Due to the high translational component of our research, we have established collaboration contracts with the pharma industry, hospitals and venture capital to bring our technology to the clinics and the market.

In our lab we use bioengineering methods to create 3D environments that support embryonic development outside of the mother uterus. Our systems are accessible to imaging tools which allow us to interrogate the genetics, metabolomics and mechanics of the embryo in a high throughput manner. Using our systems we are capable to (i) improve embryo culture conditions and (ii) diagnose embryos with improved implantation potential.
