MSc Students (2 positions)
The proposed project focuses on development of a toolkit for modulation of stability of virions using bacteriophages as model
viruses. There is a need to unravel, understand and describe in quantitative manner how various factors influence viruses. We will focus on building the model of interactions between phage virions and electromagnetic field (Task 1) and on chemical reactions between designed linkers and proteins forming capsids (Task 2). Gained knowledge might be of interest also for other fields. The most important requirement for the candidates will be high motivation to work. Students with background in chemistry, physics, biotechnology, biology, chemical engineering or similar will be recruited. Thanks to MOST program not only candidates from Warsaw (IPC PAS has proper agreement with all Universities and Academies in Warsaw) but also from other cities.

Post Doc (1 position)
The proposed project focuses on development of a toolkit for modulation of stability of virions using bacteriophages as model viruses. There is a need to unravel, understand and describe in quantitative manner how various factors influence viruses. We will
focus on building the model of interactions between phage virions and electromagnetic field (Task 1) and on chemical reactions between designed linkers and proteins forming capsids (Task 2). Gained knowledge might be of interest also for other fields.
Postdoc will be recruited to develop the physical understanding of the observed effect and boost optimization of the process. The successful applicant will need to perform experiments both in silico (where his or her role should be dominant) and in vitro or in vivo (with assistance). It will be also expected that the successful candidate
will be able to build and program designed electronic circuits (e.g., based on Raspberry Pi, Arduino or other platforms) to control the parameters of the voltage or current. The background of this person should be in physics, biophysics, physical chemistry, computational chemistry or in similar fields
