The Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics PAS (IBB PAS) in Warsaw is a world-class research institution that focuses on the study of biomolecules and their interactions in living organisms. Our research groups are composed of highly motivated and skilled scientists who are dedicated to understanding the molecular mechanisms that govern life. Furthermore, our Institute, just like science, constantly evolves which is nicely reflected by the establishment of 5 new research groups within the last 3 years. Our scientists use multidisciplinary approaches such as biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, and molecular biology to investigate a wide range of topics, including protein structure and function, DNA repair, transcription, cell signaling, and aging.

We offer exciting opportunities for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers to join our teams and contribute to cutting-edge research in a dynamic and supportive environment. Our Doctoral schools provide advanced training in the latest techniques and tools used in the field. PhD programme is tailored to meet the individual needs and goals of each student and offers excellent conditions for focusing on research with no teaching obligatory. Student community also accommodates social life and is a safe space to introduce new ideas to improve the whole student society. Additionally, integrational and educational events, interesting courses, and support programmes like psychological advice are available to each PhD student. More details regarding education in IBB can be found here. We also provide ample opportunities for postdoctoral researchers to develop their independent research programmes and collaborate with our faculty and other researchers at IBB PAS.

IBB PAS is well-equipped with state-of-the-art technology and infrastructure to support our research. Our facilities include a range of biochemistry and biophysics laboratories, as well as core facilities and computational resources. We also have strong ties with other research institutions in Poland and abroad, which provide opportunities for collaboration and networking. IBB PAS is part of Ochota Campus – a large biomedical research and academic campus including universities, research institutes, the largest clinical hospital in Poland, as well as start-up companies and core-facility environmental laboratories.

We believe that diversity and inclusivity are key to fostering a creative and productive research environment. We encourage applications from candidates of all backgrounds and are committed to promoting equity and equality in our hiring and recruitment processes. We particularly welcome candidates from various scientific backgrounds since we believe that interdisciplinary is a key factor in modern science.

If you’re passionate about research and looking for a challenging and rewarding career in science, we invite you to explore the opportunities available at IBB PAS. Join us and be a part of a vibrant community of scientists working to uncover the secrets of life at the molecular level.
