Laboratory of Structural Biology at the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw, headed by Prof. Matthias Bochtler is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join the project „The interplay between epigenomics and DNA repair” (POIR.04.04.00-00-5D81/17-00). The project is carried out within the TEAM programme of the Foundation for Polish Science (POIR EU).
The project provides opportunities for extensive interdisciplinary collaborations within the team and in the institute, as well as international collaborations. The selected candidate will be expected to present their results at scientific conferences and co-authorize scientific publications.
The Postdoctoral Researcher will be responsible for establishment of biochemical and cellular assays to probe the possible roles of TET enzymes as:
(a) proofreaders and correctors of the epigenome,
(b) signals for the DNA damage response,
(c) targeted reprogramming enzymes.
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 ( https://bit.ly/3aQKWiH ).
