A postdoctoral associate position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Zuzana Keckesova at IOCB Prague. IOCB is a renowned interdisciplinary scientific institute with a blend of highly qualified and innovative chemists, biologists, biochemists and biophysicists that engage in frequent fruitful collaborations. It has developed a well-refined infrastructure with many excellent core facilities and state-of-the-art equipment.

Dr. Keckesova’s lab aims to identify and characterize new tumor suppressor pathways and circuitries in human cells with the ultimate goal of translating this new knowledge into therapeutic use. Dr. Keckesova’s lab is researching tissues/cell types that rarely undergo tumorigenesis. These are the cellular models that already found a way to battle cancer and can teach us valuable lessons about tumor suppressor circuitries that can be used in our fight against cancer.


We are looking for postdoctoral associates with a background in cancer biology, molecular biology, biochemistry. Also considered will be scientists from other areas that will be able to contribute to this project or bring in new relevant expertise.

We are looking for creative, imaginative, independent and highly-motivated applicants with experience in molecular biology/biochemistry methods and techniques. Bioinformatics and/or animal facility handling skills are a plus. Good English speaking skills are necessary. Institute is multi-national and managed in the English language.

We offer:

  • Five weeks holiday
  • Three sick-days
  • Full benefits package incl. contribution to pension insurance, culture, and sport
