POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER IN THE LABORATORY OF SINGLE-MOLECULE BIOPHYSICS
The newly created Laboratory of Single-Molecule Biophysics at the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IIMCB), Warsaw headed by Dr. Ewelina Małecka is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher.
You will work on the SONATA BIS project: 2022/46/E/NZ1/00462 funded by the Polish National Science Centre, entitled: “Dynamics of RNA degrading complexes in bacteria”.
The goal of this project is to study the molecular mechanisms that govern the communication between specific processes such as RNA silencing, RNA degradation, and translation in bacteria. We will learn about the dynamics of these mechanisms on the millisecond scale, and thus at the real-time resolution at which these processes occur in the cell. By monitoring single molecules, we will also gain insight into the heterogeneity of these processes. All this information will be valuable in designing artificial regulators of gene expression and simulating their effects. More about the project: http://bit.ly/3yoVS3j
INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MOLECULAR AND CELL BIOLOGY IN WARSAW
The Laboratory of Single-Molecule Biophysics is located at the International Institute of Molecular
and Cell Biology in Warsaw (www.iimcb.gov.pl) – one of the top-ranked (A+) Polish research institutes that provides a stimulating and interdisciplinary research environment and opportunities of the large biomedical campus. Research topics at IIMCB cover the wide area of structural biology, bioinformatics, computer modeling, molecular and cell biology, neurobiology, cancer biology, and developmental genomics (zebrafish model). The Institute is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and has excellent core facilities and supportive administration. IIMCB benefits from numerous generous funding schemes for basic research through grants from international and national sources (www.iimcb.gov.pl/en/research/grants).
Dr. Ewelina Małecka is an expert in single-molecule microscopy – a cutting-edge methodology
that allows to study of the assembly of single complexes or monitor structural rearrangements within single copies of RNAs or proteins. More information on the lab website: http://bit.ly/3SZlc9l
As a Postdoctoral Researcher, you will be responsible for planning and performing experiments including single-molecule TIRF microscopy, analyzing data, initiating new projects, mentoring students in the lab, presenting results at scientific seminars and meetings, write scientific reports and papers.
