The Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology PAS is seeking
a candidate for the position of:


Postdoc / Specialist

Bioinformatician / Computational Biologist


Number of available positions: 1

Place of work: Laboratory of Protein Homeostasis

Researcher career profiles (R1-R4): R1
Field of science: Bioinformatics, computational biology

Type of recruitment: open competition


Scope of tasks:

The project focuses on quality control mechanisms in the biogenesis of the mitochondrial proteome. Most mitochondrial proteins originate from the cytosol and require active import into the organelle. Our current understanding of the import process is well detailed but much less is known about quality control mechanisms that respond to the failed protein translocation events. We aim to uncover and characterize this quality control mechanisms at the molecular level and to understand the role of such a response in physiology and pathology.

Key responsibilities include:

  1. Analysis and integration of different types of NGS/omics data with the main focus on transcriptomics.
  2. Functional interpretation of results of omics experiments including pathway and gene set enrichment analysis, identification of clusters, generation and comparison of signatures, correlation with phenotypic features and clinical endpoints
  3. Participation in experimental design and data analysis
  4. Participation in data preparation for publication
  5. Active participation in lab meetings, scientific seminars, and conferences



  1. PhD degree or equivalent in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, biomedical informatics, or a related field. PhD is not required if the candidate has
    a well-documented expertise.
  2. Excellent knowledge of computational methods for the analysis, integration and interpretation of high-throughput biological data from sequencing and array-based technologies
  3. Programming, data analysis, and data visualization skills in R/Bioconductor; python/perl programing
