Even though we usually advertise open positions, we will be happy to hear from you even if we cannot offer you a job right away.

 pawel_photo_researchgate Paweł Niewiadomski (group leader) I did my PhD in pharmaceutical sciences at the Medical University of Lodz. I also have a master’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Lodz. After my PhD, I spent over 7 years in the US, first at UCLA, then at Stanford. Following my return to Poland, I worked for over a year at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology in Warsaw and then I moved to CeNT to start my own laboratory.
My distinguishing character trait is passionate curiosity. I am married and have two adorable daughters: Julia and Wiktoria. I spend my free time drawing and reading books ranging from classics of fiction, through fantasy novels, to historical commentary and biographies of people I admire. My addictions include twitter and strong coffee. You can visit my personal blog at www.pawelthebiologist.com
lukasz photo Łukasz Markiewicz (postdoc) I did my PhD at the Medical University of Lodz in the field of Medical Biology. During my PhD studies I was awarded the Junior Advanced Research Grant 2012-2013 by the Fulbright Commision to join Prof. Alan Diehl’s laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania. After my return to Poland, I took a postdoctoral position at the Medical University of Lodz. Recently I was awarded the FUGA grant to do research on Gli proteins in Paweł’s lab at CeNT.
I am ambitious and I like new challenges. I am also persistent in pursuing professional goals. The two things I value the most are the truth and my family. I have a beautiful wife Aleksandra and two sons Marcel and Miłosz. My main hobbies are electronic entertainment and basketball.
Edyta photo Edyta Kawka(research assistant) I did my Master’s degree in the field of Laboratory Medicine at the Poznan University of Medical Sciences, where I also worked for a little while as a research assistant. In 2012 I went to the Charite University Hospital in Berlin as a part of the ’EuTRiPD – European Training and Research in Peritoneal Dialysis’ program funded by the European Union. As part of my doctoral training in Berlin, I worked on inflammatory responses caused by peritoneal dialysis. Outside the laboratory, I enjoy reading, listening to music, and riding a bike.
Sylwia photo Sylwia Niedziółka(PhD student) I completed my Master’s at the University of Warsaw, specializing in molecular biology. After graduating, I worked for one year in the Laboratory of Molecular Neurobiology at the Nencki Institute, where I studied molecular mechanisms of remyelination in the CNS.
Besides science, my greatest passion is sport and work as Aikido instructor. I have trained in Aikido for over 10 years, but there is still much to learn for me on this fascinating journey. I am also interested in photography and psychology.
