Ph.D. student

Laboratory of Protein Metabolism in Development and Aging together with Laboratory of Iron Homeostasis

Laboratory of Protein Metabolism in Development and Aging together with Laboratory of Iron Homeostasis at the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw are looking for a motivated and talented Ph.D. student for an exciting joint project, spanning the interface between aging, iron biology, and protein homeostasis (proteostasis). Using primary cell cultures as well as tissue-resident macrophages isolated from mice, the successful candidate will study how macrophages change their phenotypes with the aging process. Specifically, of the highest interests will be a characterization of these specialized cells regarding proteostasis. We are interested in candidates experienced in basic molecular biology and biochemical methods, cell culture work, flow cytometry, with an interest (and preferably experience) in mouse-based studies. Fluent English is required.

We offer stimulating and supportive work environment of our recently established labs, parts of excellent, open-minded and international research community of the IIMCB. The position is fully funded for 36 months (with a probation period). We will also provide help with applications for additional funding during your studies.
