A 2.5-year postdoctoral position in SYMFONIA 3 project (supported by NCN; 6500 PLN) is available in the laboratory of Prof. Bozena Kaminska (www.kaminska-lab.pl), to participate in original biomedical research using ATCAseq, ChIPseq, DNA sequencing, DNA methylation profiling, high-throughput screening techniques. He/she will work in a joint computational and experimental environment with excellent resources for experimental validation of hypotheses generated by genomic analysis. The successful applicant will assume a leadership role in the pursuit of research in genetic and epigenetic dysfunctions in brain tumors by genome-wide mapping of non-coding, putative regulatory sites and their functional characterization; biochemical and molecular characterization of genetic and epigenetic mechanisms underlying dysfunctions. The postdoctoral fellow will apply state-of-the-art high throughput methods (ATAC-seq, DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, ChIP-seq) and reverse genetic methodologies. She/he will have opportunities to attend international conferences, and participate in workshops and other career development programs in preparation for a leadership role in academia or industry.


The optimal postdoctoral researcher (up to 5 years after PhD), is enthusiastic and highly motivated to pursue a career in academic research. Qualifications: Ph.D. in Genetics or Molecular Biology. Preferred experience in biochemical, genetic and analysis of epigenetic histone modifications and/or sequence-specific DNA binding proteins. Applicants should have a strong publication record, including first authorship. Prior experience mentoring graduate and undergraduate students is highly appreciated.

Interested candidates should contact Prof. Bozena Kaminska b.kaminska@nencki.gov.pl with their CV and any questions about the research and the lab.

Deadline for applications is December 30, 2017; personal interviews with preselected candidates will be planned.  Starting date is negotiable but not later than February 1, 2018.
