CRAG is an independent research institution established as a Consortium that includes the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), the Catalan Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology (IRTA), the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), and the University of Barcelona (UB).

CRAG facilities, located at the UAB campus, were inaugurated in 2011 : an ample and well-equipped building designed for modern plant biology and genomics research.

  • CRAG brings together -under a unified management and operational structure- basic research groups in plant development, physiology, metabolism and genetics;
  • groups in bioinformatics and genomics working on plants and animals; and applied projects developed together with Agbio, Biotech, and Breeding companies.

    CRAG has been recognized since 2016 with the Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence award. The "Severo Ochoa Program, from the Spanish Government, recognizes Centers that perform cutting-edge research and are among the world's best in their respective areas.

    CRAG is also a holder of the "Human Resources Excellence in Research" award from the European Commission. The award reflects CRAG's commitment to conduct transparent and merit-based recruitment and appraisal procedures and to provide attractive working conditions in alignment with the European Charter and Code.

    CRAG is an equal opportunity / affirmative action employer and encourages women and underrepresented minorities to apply.

    The Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) is currently seeking a Junior Group Leader in the area of synthetic biology.

    We look for Junior applicants to start an independent Research Group at CRAG.

  • Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to : the development of practical tool kits to predictably manipulate gene expression in Arabidopsis thaliana and / or economically relevant crops;
  • the use of high-throughput network analyses and computational modeling to improve the efficiency of metabolic pathways or to generate relevant bioproducts;
  • and the modeling and rewiring of plant gene networks to enhance plant growth, development and resilience to biotic and abiotic stressful conditions.
