Invitation to Early Career Researchers to form research groups funded by grants

The Jagiellonian University is a top-rated university in Poland and a unique opportunity has arisen for Early Career Researchers (ECR) to form grant research funded groups at the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology.

We are a post-graduate research institute within the Jagiellonian University and currently have 15 research groups but following the extension of laboratory and office space,  we are looking to find new Early Career Researchers (ECR) group leaders who already have an excellent track record of research and whom we will support in seeking grant funding to support themselves and their research groups.

MCB research is focused on three areas, Host-Microorganism-Environment, Macromolecular Interactions and Cell-Signalling and we work on the Gene to Protein to Function to Translational Research continuum.  We are looking for researchers who will complement our current research but are particularly keen to hear from immunologists and/or people who have experience in single cell genomics/proteomics.  However, other applications from leading scientists are most welcome.

At MCB we are focused on working at a world-class level and we already have an ERC advanced grant holder and participate in a number of Horizon projects.  As part of driving  research excellence, the institute and our group leaders are reviewed by an International Scientific Advisory Board that currently covers, representatives from Austria, France, Israel, Poland and UK and includes one Nobel laureate. Furthermore, there is a strong focus on an open culture that includes mentoring and fostering collaborative work and helping our scientists become the best they can be. 

Our language of operation is English.

If you are interested in forming a grant-funded group at MCB, please send us a CV and an outline of the research you are planning to carry out over the next 3-5 years including information about the novelty, how it can fit in with the research interests of MCB and which grants you are hoping to apply for. Max. 500 words.

Please send the information to
