Hi everyone,

Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Protein Engineering (LBPE) at the  
International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IIMCB), Warsaw,  
Poland, headed by Prof. Janusz M. Bujnicki, is looking for a  
Postdoctoral Researcher for experimental structure determination of  
large RNAs (in particular lncRNAs and viral RNAs) and their complexes  
with proteins (RNPs). LBPE is an interdisciplinary and international  
team, focused on developing new approaches to determine RNA and RNP  
structures with the combined use of experimental methods and  
computational modeling.

This position is ideal for you if you have solid experience  
(documented in publications) in at least one of the following  
techniques: 1) X-ray crystallography, 2) SAXS 3) cryo-EM, 4) AFM, and  
if you wish to learn new techniques of integrative structural biology,  
including computational modeling methods. You are expected to have a  
strong publication record, which includes at least one first-author  
publication in a very good international peer-reviewed journal. You  
are expected to take a lead and apply for fellowship/grant funding  
within the first year of your employment, with a project that combines  
the initial research area (structural analyses of large RNAs) with  
your own ideas. We are particularly interested in candidates  
interested in the gradual development towards scientific independence  
(next stage: junior group leader elsewhere) or growing towards a  
position of a senior scientist within our organization (long-term  
cooperation, involvement in multiple projects, supervision of junior  

The Postdoctoral Researcher will be selected from candidates in an  
open competition, according to the procedure complying with the rules  
of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for  
the Recruitment of Researchers as a part of HR Excellence in Research  
strategy https://www.iimcb.gov.pl/en/institute/hr-excellence .

Application deadline: September 14th, 2019.
