Laboratory of Neurodegeneration at the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IIMCB), Warsaw, headed by Prof. Jacek Kuznicki is looking for Postdoctoral Fellow.
You will join the project entitled “Role of STIM2 isoforms in regulation of neuronal calcium channels in Danio rerio ”(2016/23/B/NZ3/03142), which is carried out as the OPUS grant of the Polish National Science Centre. The project provides unique opportunity to develop cutting-edge cell-based and in vivo (fish) methodologies to better understand mechanisms that modify calcium ion homeostasis. Specifically, we aim to elucidate how the lack of ER calcium sensors Stim2a and Stim2b affect gene expression, neuronal calcium homeostasis and fish behavior. As a Postdoctoral Researcher: you will continue advanced project, which might lead to new ideas and new projects.
The ideal candidate should be able to pursue challenging tasks, think independently, achieve bjectives and collaborate with other researchers. Candidates will be selected in an open competition, according to the procedure complying with the rules of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers as a part of HR Excellence in Research strategy https://www.iimcb.gov.pl/en/institute/hr-excellence .
