The IIMCB hosts a vibrant, multinational community of scientists and is well-connected internationally as exemplified by the composition of the IIMCB's International Advisory Board and the IIMCB's membership in EU-LIFE, an alliance of 15 top European research institutions. The IIMCB is on its way to unprecedented scientific and institutional growth, in part supported by the RACE project entitled: “RNA and Cell Biology - from Fundamental Research to Therapies” funded in the Teaming for Excellence program under Horizon Europe. Through planned expansion to eventually 20 research groups involved in innovative translational projects in RNA biology and cell biology, we aim to become a unique Polish center where excellent science profits from state-of-the-art technologies and services provided by core facilities (CF).

To this end, the IIMCB is establishing institutional support for the development of current and the creation of new core facilities, wherein the CF Technology Manager will have a significant role. Currently, there are 6 units headed by expert scientists: Biophysics and Bioanalytics, Genome Engineering, Microscopy, Animal Housing Facility, Preclinical Drug Development, and Zebrafish Core Facility. By 2025 our portfolio of CF will heavily expand with advanced technologies critical to support research at IIMCB, with a focus on Genomics, Mass Spectrometry, Cellular Models and Organoids, and Bioinformatics. CF Technology Manager will contribute to the long-term development of all core facilities at IIMCB in close cooperation with Flanders Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) in Belgium. Therefore, the successful candidate will receive an extended training-in-residence at the VIB core facilities sites in Belgium, at the initial stage of employment.
