The Internal Grant Agency of FM MU launched a call for two two-year postdoctoral positions in November 2021. In total, nine group leaders applied for the competition: three from the Department of Biology, four from the Department of Histology and Embryology and two from the Department of Pathological Physiology. Their research topics were then advertised on Czech and foreign websites (e.g. Euraxess, Science careers, FindAPostdoc.com).
In two months, 68 candidates applied. 19 of them met the formal requirements and 6 were invited to the second round - an online interview with the selection committee. As a result, two best candidates accepted the offer: Dr Manal Farea from Kobe Gakuin University, Japan, who will come to bolster the research group of Dr Jan Krivanek, and Dr Gustavo Rico from Andalusian Centre of Biomedicine and Nanotechnology, Malaga, Spain, who will enrich the research group of Dr Pavel Krejci.
