Job ID


One post-doctoral position in “Molecular and Cellular Biology” is available in the Department of Neurobiology at the Poznan University of Physical Education (Poland) under the co-supervision of Marcin Bączyk and Daniel Zytnicki.

The position is funded by the Polish National Science Centre (NCN) for 3 years with a very attractive gross annual salary of 120,000 PLN (approximately 5,500 to 6,000 PLN, monthly net salary), significantly exceeding the Polish average.

We are looking for motivated candidates with interest in the fields of neurophysiology, neurobiology, and neurodegeneration.
