- development of novel chemical and enzymatic methods for efficient constructions of base-modified DNA and RNA
Requirements: MS degree in organic or bioorganic chemistry or in biochemistry to be finished within 2013, strong interest in organic synthesis and/or bioorganic chemistry, willingness to learn new techniques and to work on multidisciplinary projects in international environment and good knowledge of English (foreign students will be expected to learn Czech during the study).
The deadline for applications is end of March 2013. Foreign students should send their CV and letters of recommendations to Dr. Hocek (who will later contact only the short-listed candidates for further negotiations).

Diploma (MS) students
A limited number of undergraduate students could work on their diploma thesis in our group in collaboration either with the Institute of Chemical Technology Prague or with the Charles University. Interested students should contact Dr. Hocek and visit our laboratory to discuss the possibilities.
1-2 positions of postdoctoral associates are usually available every year in the Hocek group (applications from EU-countries are particularly welcome). Announcements are advertised here. At this moment there is no vacancy (next openings might be available in spring 2014).
