A new journey



Our lab Ion Channels & Diseases is part of the Institute of Organic Chemistry & Biochemistry that carries out fundamental research in organic chemistry, biochemistry and related disciplines, focusing in particular on medical and environmental applications. It educates graduate students. It is the seat of the Committee for defense of doctor of science dissertations in organic and bio-organic chemistry.

Open positions


PhD Student: We are currently searching for a highly motivated student interested in doing a PhD in “cotutelle” between Czech and French universities. The successful candidate will benefit from a French Government Scholarship (Barrande fellowship) for a duration of 3 years and will have the possibility to spend 5 months / year in the partner research laboratory in France. Project: The research project will focus on the identification of selective and potent compounds active on voltage-activated T-type calcium channels and relevant for the treatment of neuropathic pain and epilepsy. Apply here!

Postdoctoral Fellow: We are seeking to hire a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist to join our tea. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to address several aspects of the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating low-voltage-activated T-type calcium channels and their implication in neurological disorders such as epilepsy, pain, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Apply here!

Graduate Students


The lab welcomes MSc | PhD Students interested in doing their training | research in the field of molecular and cellular neuroscience. Our institute is also supporting a Summer Student Program to European students interested in spending 2 months with us. Please feel free to contact us anytime to discuss your interests and possibilities.    

Postdoctoral Fellows


Our home institute has a call twice a year (submission deadlines April 1st and October 1st) for postdoctoral fellowships. Candidates with strong publication record are invited to contact us in advance to elaborate their research project.
