PostDoc in Biomolecular Condensates

The Hyman lab is doing pioneering research about phase separation and shaped the biomolecular condensates community by defining novel concepts about cellular organization. The Toth-Petroczy lab is an interdisciplinary research group that studies protein evolution. We are a group of scientists with diverse backgrounds from biology, chemistry, biophysics, computer science and bioinformatics. We are fascinated by intrinsically disordered protein regions (IDRs) and aim to understand their role in evolution and condensate formation.

We are offering a
Postdoctoral Position
in Biomolecular Condensates.


The field of biomolecular condensates is rapidly growing as more and more biological functions are associated with condensates such as transcriptional control, RNA metabolism and cellular organisation. How many biological condensates are there? And how many are there yet to be discovered?
