Contest for the positions of Postdoctoral Researcher

Rector of the Jagiellonian University announces a contest for the positions of Postdoctoral Researcher in Lipid/Microfluidics Nanoscience.

We are now recruiting a postdoctoral scientist to join our team to design and build DNA-membrane protein nanomachines for use in artificial cells. The project offers the opportunity to gain experience in a new area of synthetic biology, which will become increasingly important in the future. It also offers the chance to work in a dynamic, international team working closely with partners across the world and the successful applicant will have the opportunity to spend some time at the lab of Ilia Platzman ( at the Max Planck Institute of Medical Research in Heidelberg, Germany.
You will be part of the Heddle lab (, a newly established, innovative lab carrying out ambitious research aimed at designing and building artificial biological nanomachines using DNA, protein and lipid building blocks. We are located in a state-of-the-art laboratory, based at the new Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology, in the beautiful city of Krakow, Poland.

1. Should have a PhD in chemical engineering, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics or related discipline
2. Should have extensive, demonstrated expertise in working with microfluidics, particularly for biological samples
3. Must be less than 5 years since awarding of PhD (not including allowed career breaks)
4. Experience working with lipids/membrane proteins/DNA nanostructures would be advantageous but not obligatory
5. Experience in structural biology, particularly cryo EM will be advantageous but not obligatory
6. Have good skills of work management and experimental record keeping
7. Should be able to work well in a multidisciplinary team
8. Have good written and oral communication skills in English
