Metabolomics is the study of small molecule metabolites in the metabolome, which is the complete set of metabolites in a biological sample. By studying these metabolites, we can observe changes in cellular networks and biochemical pathways. This allows us to detect disease states and their progression, monitor responses to therapy, stratify patients based on biochemical profiles, and highlight targets for drug design. Our team provides the biomedical community with information on metabolism: small molecules and their interplay with biological systems.We are responsible for MetaboLights, a global public resource for data from metabolomics experiments and derived information. The database is cross-species, cross-technique and covers metabolite structures and their reference spectra as well as their biological roles, locations and concentrations, and experimental data from metabolic experiments. We are also developing a centralised metabolite library and the Metabolomics Labs, a workspace for our community to use up to date and appropriate workflows for metabolomics analysis.This is an exciting time for the metabolomics field and we as a team are committed to evolving our database and services to support community requirements. In fact MetaboLights is experiencing an exponential phase of growth and there is a need for specific curation resources to enable us to respond to our user demand.

The group of Arnaud Krebs (EMBL Heidelberg) is looking for a post-doctoral candidate to develop a project aiming at how transcription factors function at enhancers in the context of development. The Krebs group at EMBL studies fundamental mechanisms regulating gene expression. Our main goal is to understand how regulatory genetic information is interpreted by transcription factors. We study the contribution of cooperativity mechanisms (Sönmezer C, et al, Mol Cell 2021), the influence of epigenetics marking and nuclear context on the function of enhancers. Our approach combines development of new genomics strategies and high throughput perturbation systems (Krebs A, et al, eLife 2019) to understand how Transcription Factors control cell identity.

The newest EMBL site in Barcelona, with its focus on tissue biology and disease modelling, is established in the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), one of the largest infrastructures in Southern Europe dedicated to translational research. Biological and biomedical research has moved rapidly towards adopting 3D cultures, which requires design and fabrication of novel engineered platforms. To bridge engineering, biology and biomedicine, we are building a Makerspace Workshop to facilitate creative design and development of engineered tools. In collaboration with the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and Pompeu Fabra Univirsity (UPF), this workshop will be housed in the PRBB and will allow access to all employees across institutes within the park. This space will be useful for fostering novel collaborations between institutes and will allow for creative exchange of ideas. The workshop will also be host to in-house demos and/or outreach activities related to fabrication. Thus, we are looking for a Technical Specialist who can fulfil a dual role. One major role (50% time dedication) is to manage the workshop – assist with basic training of all users, scheduling, stocking and overall maintenance of the space. In addition, the (50% time dedication) Technical Specialist will work as a consultant on the establishment of new tools (help with design, fabrication and/or troubleshooting) for EMBL projects, as well as potentially run demos and outreach activities on the basis of need.

Digital health data promises to further our understanding of an individual’s disease risk and to discover determinants of differential outcomes. Such analyses are experiencing a boost in different countries by aggregating anonymised medical records of large parts of the population in secure trusted research environments. The Danish healthcare system is one of the leading countries for systematic electronic healthcare information. Additionally, different cohorts, such as the UK Biobank, exist that have genomically profiled hundreds of thousands of individuals and characterised their health via diverse assays from MRI-scans to detailed blood counts in conjunction with linking to their medical records. Yet analysing these troves of data from millions of individuals easily overwhelms most research applications.
