Postdoctoral and postgraduate positions on a project funded by ERC will be opened in June 2018

Location: BIOCEV, Charles University, Vestec, CzechRepublic (www.biocev.eu)

Employer: Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic

Description: Positions are parts of the team working on a project focused on the investigation of oxymonads – eukaryotes without mitochondria. Major aims are to disclose their metabolism, particularly FeS cluster synthesis, and to develop tool for their study (axenic cultivation, transfection, RNAi). Furthermore, we will examine other potential amitochondriates and test the possibilities of mitochondrial knock-outs in selected anaerobes.

Qualification in cell biology (cell fractionation, immunofluorescence, genetictransformation, RNAi, immunolocalisation, immunoprecipitation, two-hybridsystems), cultivation techniques orgenomics (single cell isolation, NGS library preparations, dataassembly, genome annotation, methods of comparative genomics) is advantage but enthusiasm and invention are necessary conditions.
