The Institute of Biophysics (IBP) is part of the Czech Academy of Sciences, the largest research institution in the Czech Republic. The institute was established on 1 January 1955 from the Biophysical Laboratory of the Academy of Sciences, which was founded one year earlier. IBP consists of ten research departments that cover broad areas of nucleic acids research, ranging from structural and mechanistic insights into DNA/RNA molecules, their cellular functions, and genome maintenance with direct implications for medicine, technology, and agriculture.

IBP constitutes an international, ambitious, dynamic, and well-equipped working environment with state-of-the-art facilities for flow cytometry, high-resolution microscopy, high-content imaging, and transgenic mouse work. IBP strongly emphasizes the balance between professional life and a family-friendly working environment under the auspices of the HR Excellence in Research Award.  

IBP is located in Brno Žabovřesky, with convenient access to public transport (approximately every 5-7 minutes from the Brno Main Train Station, tram number 12 or the bus number 67).
