A postdoctoral researcher in biological physics

We seek a talented post-doctoral researcher to contribute to the project “Transition from genetic to phenotypic antibiotic resistance in de novo bacterial mutants”.

The project will involve creating a microfluidic device suitable for live imaging of 109 bacterial cells, tracking antibiotic-resistant spontaneous mutants that evolve in the device, and measuring their growth rate over several generations. This will be complemented with DNA sequencing and in situ visualisation of mutations using a CRISPR/Cas9-based technique developed by another post-doc.

The project will also use mathematical modelling to interpret the data and predict the effect of the genotype-to phenotype transition on the dynamics of bacterial infections.

Theorists and computational researchers interested in image processing and seeking to gain wet lab experience are encouraged to apply.

Salary. Gross salary 11000 PLN/month (net salary approx. 8700 PLN, approximately 1800 EUR).

Application procedure.

A complete application should include the following items:
