Postdoc position

Laboratory of Structural Biology

Postdoc position at IIMCB, Warsaw
CRISPR tools for targeted RNA knockdown
Laboratory of Structural Biology



The Laboratory of Structural Biology headed by Matthias Bochtler at the International Institute for Molecular and Cell Biology (IICMB), Warsaw invites applications from motivated and talented young researchers for a postdoc position. The successful applicant will join an NCN funded project that focuses on the development of CRISPR nucleases as tools for targeted RNA knockdown, initially in the zebrafish model (https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2017/12/04/228775). The planned work will be carried out in collaboration with Dr. Gintautas Tamulaitis, Prof. Virgis Sisknys (IBT, Lithunia) and Dr. Cecilia Winata (the Laboratory of Zebrafish Developmental Genomics, IIMCB).

The ideal candidate should have received during the last seven years a PhD in molecular biology, biochemistry, or genetics, and should have laboratory experience in at least two of these areas. Prior experience with zebrafish as a model organism and familiarity with sequencing and some bioninformatic training are highly desirable. Proficiency in English is expected since the Matthias Bochtler’s Laboratory and the Cecilia Winata’s Laboratory communicate in English (the lab leaders are not Polish).

We offer full-time employment contract for one year initially, with a possibility of extension for the duration of the project (36 months in total). The selected candidate can start September 1st or at his or her earliest convenience.

Please forward your complete application including a CV, publication list, motivational letter, PhD diploma, and the contact to at least one referee to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The position is open immediately.

Please include in your application the following statement: “In accordance with the personal data protection act from the 29th of August 1997, I hereby agree to process and to store my personal data by the Institution for recruitment purposes”.
