A postdoctoral position is available IMMEDIATELY in the Laboratory of fish protistology at
the Institute of Parasitology, Biology Center of Czech Academy of Sciences for a duration
of 2.5 years and potential for prolongation thereafter.
The fellow will join an international research team studying host-pathogen interaction
resulting from the arms race between the myxozoans and the immune system of fish. The
principal aims of the project are the elucidation of mechanisms underlying the development
of specific immunity and the analysis of the evasion strategies employed by the parasite. Our
model is common carp and myxozoan parasite Sphaerospora molnari.
Candidates with a Ph.D. or equivalent, with previous experience with animal experimentation,
flow cytometry, immunological assays or cell biology techniques are encouraged to apply.
Preference will be given to candidates who attained their postgraduate degree within
the last 3 years.
The Institute of Parasitology is one of the largest European centers of parasitological research,
located in České Budějovice, the capital city of South Bohemia known for its original Budweiser
beer. The city is surrounded by the UNESCO heritage sites of Hluboká nad Vltavou and
Český Krumlov, and the pristine nature of Bohemian Forest National Park.
