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.

​Investigating factors that determine host range of b-acteriophages infecting Klebsiella pneumoniae. (Supervisor: dr hab. Rafał Mostowy)

Project description:

The student will use a combination of genome informatics and experimental microbiology to understand factors that contribute to the host range of Klebsiella phages. The project will be based on (i) comparative genomics of large collections of bacterial genomes and prophages therein, and (ii) experimental work to induce selected prophages and examine their host rage against a wide range of bacterial isolates. By comparing the infection genotype (bioinformatics) and phenotype (laboratory work), the successful candidate will provide novel insight into the fundamental understanding of the host range in Klebsiella prophages. Experimental work will be carried out in collaboration with the laboratory of Prof. Zuzanna Drulis-Kawa at the University of Wroclaw.
