The Department of Biosciences and Nutrition performs research and education in areas of medical science including bioorganic chemistry, molecular endocrinology, cancer biology, functional genomics, systems biology, epigenetics, structural biochemistry, cellular virology, and nutrition. The department offers an international study and working environment, including around 300 scientists, students, administrative and technical personnel.
The research group of Maria Eriksson is seeking for a postdoctoral researcher. The research group aims to identify novel genetic mechanisms of aging with a special focus on somatic mutations and their contribution to the functional declined tissue homeostasis with increased age. The research involves the use of both in vitro and in vivo model systems, in addition to patient samples.
The applicant is expected to play a leading role in experimental design, experimentation, analysis, and presentation/publication of research results. The research work includes standard molecular biological techniques, next generation applications for genome-wide analysis, and mouse phenotyping. The postdoctor is expected to be part of the group and to develop in accordance with the common group goals and research interests. He /She should be highly motivated, responsible, able to function well in the group, able to perform his /her own experiments and to provide suggestions and support in experimental design, and experimentation to other members of the group.
The position is a time-limited employment 1+1 year.
The applicant is expected to be a talented and highly motivated researcher, with good communication skills. He/She should have a PhD degree in Biomedicine, or similar. The applicant should be able to take a leading roll, provide suggestions and contribute significantly to fulfill the aim to study the contribution of somatic mutations to functional tissue decline and prepare results for publication.Previous experience from work with droplet digital PCR, human samples, mice models, and skeletal muscle is advantageous.Emphasis will be placed on personal suitability.
A person is eligible for a position as Postdoctoral Researcher if he or she has obtained a PhD no more than seven years before the last date of employment as postdoc. The term can be extended under special circumstances.
An employment application must contain the following documents in English or Swedish:
The application is to be submitted through the MyNetwork recruitment system.
