Researcher opportunity in cell biology
The researcher will participate in international and local projects using liquid biopsy methods, processing several types of biological material (blood, stool, urine, mucosa, tumour tissue) and should have skills for many other modern methods such as qPCR, new generation sequencing atc. Bioinformatic education is welcome. We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow with experience with cell culture methods and a wide range of molecular biology methods.
The candidate should have an excellent profile, knowledge of cell biology and molecular biology and strong communication skills, and motivation. The candidate should be able to work collaboratively, be committed to academic research, and work harmoniously with colleagues and students of all cultures and backgrounds.
The person selected for participation in activity Working visits of junior researchers abroad must meet, on the date of departing, all of the following conditions:

Citizens of the Czech Republic are not excluded.
prove publishing activity – at least 2 publications in the last 3 year
Additional requirements for a mobility participant are as follows:
