Job description:

A postdoctoral position is available at the Experimental Hematology group at Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO). The Experimental Hematology group, directed by Dr. Francesc Bosch, head of the Hematology Department at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, focuses on the study of the mechanisms of pathogenesis and progression of hematologic malignancies. We are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral research scientist with a strong background in hematology and/or immunology to join our group. The research line to be developed is aimed at the study of the role of the immune system in chronic lymphocytic leukemia and includes the study of primary samples and transgenic mouse models.

Our research team is composed of hematologists and biological scientists who work closely together to design, conduct and lead our programs. Our projects are always based on the unmet medical needs identified by hematologists, with the ultimate goal of translating our results to patients by developing early phase clinical trials and defining novel biomarkers to improve diagnosis, prognosis and outcomes.

More information about the research group can be found here:



  • Scientific background in the hematology and/or immunology fields.
  • Accreditation and experience working with research animals.
  • Minimum Level in English: C1.


Additional information:

About VHIO:

Under the leadership of Josep Tabernero, the Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO), has established itself as a comprehensive cancer center of proven excellence internationally. It is also thanks to VHIO’s optimal organizational structure based on a purely multidisciplinary and translational model that VHIO talents continue to anticipate and tackle the many unresolved questions in combatting this multifaceted and heterogeneous disease.

Located within the Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus, our researchers closely collaborate and interact with Vall d’Hebron physician-scientists. Translational science and clinical research are therefore tightly connected which promotes superb interaction and teamwork which, in turn, accelerates the bench-bedside-bed cycle of knowledge. This privileged environment affords VHIO direct access to patients as well as the entire spectrum of oncology professionals who care for them, and a second-to-none appreciation of how cancer science can translate into more powerful, targeted treatments and better practice for the care of patients.

VHIO’s pioneering model and programs, coupled with its belief in combining strengths through cross-border collaborations, continue to spur advances in reversing cancer resistance, halting metastatic spread, and more effectively treating even the most undruggable tumor types.


VHIO’s translation toward precision oncology:

Vall d’Hebron Institute Oncology (VHIO) endorses the Requirements and Principles of the European Charter for Researchers, the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers promoted by the European Commission and follows Equal Opportunities policies.

On 10th April 2018 VHIO was awarded the “HR Excellence in Research” logo. Our Institute was consequently granted permission to use the HR Excellence in Research Award logo as demonstration of its stimulating and favourable work environment in line with the Charter & Code.
