International PhD Programme in Structural Biology
The Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of
Sciences (IChB PAN) in Poznan, in cooperation with several foreign partners (Max-Planck Institute (Germany), National Cancer Institute (USA), EMBL) has a highly vigorous and attractive International
PhD Programme in "Structural
biology of plants and microbes". The research projects focus on the application of protein
engineering and protein crystallography to the study of structural aspects of plant and microbe biology and of
host-microbe interactions. The programme is supported by the Foundation
for Polish Science through structural funds of the European Union.
Our Ph.D. students are enrolled in a 4-5-year programme, expected to conclude with the presentation and public defence of a Ph.D. thesis, for obtaining a doctoral degree in chemistry or biochemistry from the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences. The recruited candidates were expected to have a university MSc degree (or equivalent) in chemistry, biology, or a related field. The MPD fellows are formally enrolled in the Graduate School of IChB PAN and work according to its regulations. The entire programme is in English.
Currently, there are nine students in the programme.
The applications will be reviewed by Admissions Commission, which will make their selection according
to the grades, motivation, reference, and additional merits. The selected candidates will be invited
for an interview on April 27, 2011. The final selection will be announced on April 28, 2011. The successful candidate will be expected to start the programme on May 2, 2011.
Queries may be addressed to Dr. Anna Urbanowicz. The Institute
of Bioorganic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences, is an equal opportunity employer and encourages
applications from disabled persons.
