IMol has been established to conduct scientific research and provide training in the fields of biological, chemical, medical, biotechnological, bioinformatics, biophysical, pharmacological, and similar sciences, in the international environment conducive to collaborative efforts, research and development interactions with biotechnological industry, and wide dissemination of our results. We aim at the development of solutions that will help everyone on this planet live a safer life.

Currently IMol is seeking highly motivated candidates for a position of:

PhD Student in Cell and Molecular Biology

Located: Warsaw, Poland

Job start date: as soon as possible

Deadline for applying: 31.05.2022

 

The work will be conducted in the Laboratory of Metabolic Quality Control under the supervision of Dr Karolina Szczepanowska. We are a newly established and vigorously developing group of science enthusiasts aiming to discover the mechanisms that shape cellular metabolism in response to disease-associated stress. Your postdoctoral project will focus on dissecting the role of boosted proline biosynthesis in mammalian cells suffering from dysfunctional mitochondria. Mitochondrial dysfunction underlies a range of life-threatening diseases for which effective treatments are still missing. Your research will shed light on fundamental mechanisms implemented in the cellular response to metabolic stress and help design new therapeutical strategies to combat mitochondrial diseases. Using a set of state-of-the-art proteomics, cell imaging, biochemistry and molecular biology approaches combined with 3D cell culture, you will investigate the consequences of metabolic reprogramming stimulated by failing mitochondrial function. Joining us will allow you to develop an exciting research project with possible translational application and master numerous advanced experimental techniques.

Furthermore, you will benefit from a young, collaborative and dynamic scientific environment.
