The Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology PAS is seeking a candidate for the position of:
Postdoctoral Researcher at theDioscuri Centre for Metabolic Diseases
Number of available positions: 1
Place of work: Dioscuri Centre for Metabolic Diseases
Researcher career profiles (R1-R4): Recognized researcher (R2)
Field of science: Biology, biomedicine, biochemistry, physiology, metabolism
Type of recruitment: NCN OPUS 23 (Polish National Science Centre grant)
Experience in cell culture, molecular biology and/or biochemistry techniques; expertise in working with mice or other rodents will be in plus.
Specific experience in lipid biology will be an advantage.
Proactive approach to achieving tasks and objectives, good interpersonal skills, a collaborative attitude.
Scientific achievements documented by publications from the JCR list.
The position is available within the OPUS 23 project “Unraveling mechanisms and physiological outcome of lipid-evoked regulation of proteostasis in the intestine” financed for 4 years by the Polish National Science Center.
The main aim of our laboratory is to understand the cross-talk of different classes of signaling molecules in regulation of metabolic homeostasis. We are especially interested in unraveling novel signaling modules promoting adipose tissue, skeletal muscles and intestine dysfunction during metabolic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes.
In the framework of this proposal, we will utilize a combination of cell biology, biochemical, and proteomic approaches as well as advanced microscopic techniques to tackle the mechanisms changing proteostasis of the enterocytes in response to lipids ingestion. We believe that the project will not only result in the identification of novel mechanisms ensuring intestinal homeostasis but will also lay the basis for the generation of new pharmacological strategies to treat metabolic and inflammatory diseases in the intestine.
Postdoctoral position is available at the laboratory of dr. Grzegorz Sumara sponsored by the Dioscuri Center of Excellence (supported by the Max Planck Society and the Polish National Science Center) and EMBO Installation Grant.
