The main goal of the Center for Research in Inflammatory Diseases (CRID) is to advance the pathophysiological understanding of inflammatory diseases. To accomplish this goal, CRID team applies state-of-the-art tools to recognize and to understand the molecular, immunological, pathological and pharmacological mechanisms involved in inflammation; to develop pharmacological and immune therapy tools; to search for diagnostic markers and prognostic clues; and to apply this knowledge to design and synthesize new molecules for treating inflammatory diseases.

The post-doctoral fellow will develop pipelines for the analysis of high-throughput assay data (mostly RNA-Seq and microarrays) and use systems biology approaches to investigate the molecular mechanisms of inflammatory processes.
