The successful postdoc fellow will be based in the Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Scienceslocated at BIOCEV for up to 2.5 years. The post is located in Vestec in the Central Bohemia region in the Czech Republic.
The Postdoctoral fellow will join the team of the Laboratory of Structural Biology and Cell Signaling that is focused on developing methods for structural biology, proteomics and clinical mass spectrometry. The laboratory is equipped with an armory of modern instruments, including the state-of -the art mass spectrometers (solariX XR, timsTOF Pro and timsTOF SCP for single cell analysis, Autoflex MALDI and maXis QTOF), nano and capillary flow ultra-high performance liquid chromatographs, excimer and CO2 lasers, micropipette robot and all the necessary equipment of biochemical and chemical laboratory.
Through the collaborative secondments, the fellow will have an opportunity to work with our local industrial partner, AffiPro s.r.o and to visit the laboratory of Prof. Frank Turecek, University of Washington, WA, USA. The fellow may also liaise with international collaborators through the MERIT network of secondment organisations (in the academic or non-academic sector).
The expected outputs of the fellowship are high-level scientific publications and potentially applied research outputs such as patents or prototypes. The fellow will gain experience working with a small technological company.
The applicant can freely formulate his/her own research topic.The fellow will be working on the design of a new device for modification of surfaces by ambient ion landing. Experience with instrument design and any form of mass spectrometry are preferred, but it is not a requirement.
