Two PhD student positions

in molecular biology available from January, 2018 in the group of
dr Damian Graczyk

at the

Institute of Biophysics and Biochemistry,

Polish Academy of Sciences,

Warsaw, Poland

 

Two PhD students are sought to work in a young, developing team focused on the regulation of RNA polymerase III transcription and its role in mammalian cell physiology.  We are studying the impact of transcriptional misregulation in pathological conditions such as cancer. The current project, funded by the Foundation for Polish Science  First TEAM programme, aims to decipher the role of RNA polymerase III in colorectal cancer.  We will use genetic, biochemical and genomic approaches to determine how increased RNA polymerase III activity contributes to tumorigenic properties of colorectal cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo.
