Competition for the post of a ASSISTANT PROFESSOR in the research staff in (DNA nanotechnology, protein purification, structural biology, biochemistry, lipid chemistry, molecular biology (Team, FNP) at the Bionanoscience and Biochemistry Laboratory

Rector of the Jagiellonian University announces a contest for a ASSISTANT PROFESSOR in the research staff (Postdoctoral Fellow) (DNA nanotechnology, protein purification, structural biology, biochemistry, lipid chemistry, molecular biology) in the Laboratory of Bionanoscience and Biochemistry at the MAŁOPOLSKA CENTRE OF BIOTECHNOLOGY (FNP TEAM)

The Bionanoscience and Biochemistry Laboratory is recruiting for a fully-funded position with a duration of up to 24 months for the post of a Scientific technician. The successful candidate will join a project that aims to design and build novel DNA-based nanomachines able to interact with specific proteins and help construct artificial cells and cell like structures, particularly they will be involved in applying this technology to construct novel structures that will be able to act as a new class of vaccine, e.g. against SARS-CoV-2.
 
Who can apply
The competitive selection process is open for all individuals, who meet the requirements set out in Articles 113 and 116.2.3) of the Act of 20 July 2018 – Law on Higher Education and Science, and who meet the following eligibility criteria according to § 165 of the Statute of the Jagiellonian University:
