Abstract

Many processes implicated in the regulation of DNA transcription are driven by highly modular protein-protein interaction networks that are not exclusively maintained by the well-structured protein domains but also by highly dynamic regions of interacting proteins. The aim of the doctoral project will be an identification as well as investigation of the physiological and pathological roles of these transient interactions in chromatin remodeling and transcription regulation using highly interdisciplinary approach, including protein biochemistry, biophysics, cell and structural biology.

Field of study: Developmental and Cell Biology

Universities

PhD students must be enrolled in a partner university and will be employed by the IOCB Prague at the same time (part-time or full time), which results in a competitive salary (a scholarship from the university + a salary from the IOCB). Each university has its own process, terms, and deadlines for PhD applications, which is separate from the IOCB recruitment process. You may discuss the details with the respective PI.

How to apply

Please return to the PhD projects at IOCB Prague – Call for Applications 2022 page and follow the instructions.
