Recruitment 2021/2022 — Biomedical Sciences

Ph.D. Programme in Biomedical Sciences is a programme of the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences with a strong interdisciplinary, international, inter-sectoral research and training dimension.

The programme covers various areas of biology (synthetic, structural, molecular, cellular, developmental) and medicine (studies on endothelium) and utilises plants, viruses, bacteria, invertebrates, and vertebrates.

Training will be focused on the interests and expertise of researchers working at the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology (MCB), Jagiellonian Centre for Experimental Therapeutics (JCET) and National Synchrotron Radiation Centre (SOLARIS).

Successful applicants will then work in at least one of the three excellent and interdisciplinary institutes  – MCB, JCET or SOLARIS. The institutes are staffed by international world-class scientists and are publishing research at the highest level. 

Students offered a place in our funded Ph.D. programme will obtain full financial support regardless of nationality. Since our studentships are extremely competitive, we also encourage you to seek your own funding.

The programme is run in English, either in an eight-semester or in six-semester system.

During their Ph.D., students are expected to attend training courses in transferable and general research skills, participate in the students' and outreach activities, present their work regularly and attend seminar. More information about the programme can be found here.

Understanding the structural biology of coronaviruses (Supervisor: prof. Grzegorz Dubin) [OPEN CALL]

Project description:

Coronaviruses are lurking in mammals for decades. Prior outbreaks have been largely ignored, but the current pandemics demonstrates the devastating potential of this family of viruses. The project aims at understanding the structural and functional proteins within coronaviruses with the ultimate goal of developing effective inhibitors of viral proliferation. The project is carried out in collaboration with the largest coronavirus laboratory in Poland which provides functional assays at BSL3 level and in international collaborations. The successful candidate will get a chance to support the studies primary in the fields of structural biology and inhibitor screening.
