Training attained

We are looking for undergraduate students with degrees related to biological sciences, statistics or engineering.


Although it is not exclusive, knowledge of programming and/or data analysis would be an asset.


The graduate thesis will be carried out within the framework of a research line that uses multi-omics data and artificial intelligence to predict gene functions. The selected person will work with Dr. Flavio Pazos Obregón and Dr. Rosario Durán and will join the project “Identification of new components of the divisome and elongasome of Corynebacteriales using spatial proteomics, gene location patterns and artificial intelligence”. During the thesis work, machine learning models capable of predicting gene functions will be implemented, using public domain multiomics data and data obtained by our Unit.

The internship will be, in principle, honorary, although depending on the progress of the project, funding will be sought. The nature of the work enables a semi-face-to-face regime.


The duration of the internship will be 12 months.

We invite interested people to apply through this link and attach the following documents in pdf format:
a) Motivation letter.
b) Schooling.
c) CV.
The deadline for receipt of applications will be extended to March 15, 2024.
