Laboratory of Protein Metabolism in Development and Aging at the International Institute for Molecular and Cell Biology (IIMCB), Warsaw, headed by Wojciech Pokrzywa, seeks productive, creative, and motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to join a project that aims to dissect the mechanisms underlying hibernation-related remodeling of the C. elegans proteome. The position is funded in frame of the GRIEG project no. UMO-2019/34/H/NZ3/00691 entitled: “Cellular adaptation to cold”. It is Polish-Norwegian research project funded from the Norway and EEA Grants 2014–2021 under the Basic Research Programme operated by the National Science Centre.
The ideal candidate should be able to pursue challenging tasks and achieve objectives 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
The laboratory is located in 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 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, 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).
As a Postdoctoral Researcher: you will be responsible for determining the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system and its specialization in cold adaptation. The project will combine C. elegans genetics with EMS mutagenesis, RNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, imaging techniques, and phenotypic analysis. You will be responsible for planning and conducting experiments, data analysis, and project development. You will also assist in coordinating daily activities and supervising students. Preference will be given to an individual who can work independently, write manuscripts and scientific reports, and have expertise most relevant to the project and our laboratory.
The deadline for applications is December 1st. The starting date is January 15th, 2020 (or as soon
as possible after that date).
