Laboratory of Recombination and DNA Repair, Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University

We invite applications for a PhD studentship and a Postdoctoral position from applicants with an enthusiastic interest in molecular biology and biochemistry. The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Krejčí to identify and characterize novel inhibitors of DNA repair nucleases, their mechanisms of action and therapeutic implications.

The PhD position candidate should hold or be about to complete a Masters degree in molecular biology, biochemistry or similar field. The applicant is also expected to demonstrate essential training in a range of molecular biology techniques relevant to basic research, should be well-organised, motivated and passionate about pursuing a career in biomedical research.

The Postdoc position candidate should hold or be about to complete a PhD degree in molecular biology, biochemistry or similar field. The applicant is expected to demonstrate broad training and aptitude in a range of molecular biology techniques relevant to cancer research, should be independent, enthusiastic and have a strong track record.
