Prof. Andrzej Dziembowski will lead the new laboratory at IIMCB

Professor Andrzej Dziembowski won the open international competition for the ERA Chairs Group Leader position at IIMCB. The Laboratory of RNA Biology will start operating in December 2019. It will be supported by the Horizon2020 ERA Chairs project entitled “MOlecular Signaling in Health and Disease - Interdisciplinary Centre of Excellence” acronym: MOSaIC.

The primary research interest of the laboratory is the regulation of gene expression at the posttranscriptional level. Currently, Prof. Dziembowski’s research is focused on two areas:
•   Analysis of the function of processive ribonucleases, which through RNA degradation shape the transcriptomes of eukaryotic cells
•   Analysis of cytoplasmic poly(A) and poly(U) polymerases which add nontemplated nucleotides to the 3’ ends of RNA molecules affecting their stability and biological functions

More information about the research conducted by Prof. Dziembowski’s group on the lab website.




The Laboratory of RNA Biology led by Profesor Andrzej Dziembowski is seeking highly motivated individuals at various scientific levels and different scientific background to join our group.  We are especially looking for people experienced/interested in:

  • RNA biology
  • Transcriptomics
  • Immunology
  • Usage of mouse and/or C. elegans as experimental models

We offer positions for postdoctoral researchers, PhD students and research technicians on a competitive basis.
