Uppsala University, Department of Medical Cell Biology
Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.
The Department of Medical Cell Biology at Uppsala University has a strong and international research environment with over 100 scientists, including around 25 PhD students, 20 postdocs and 30 researchers and professors.
Duties/project description: A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Professor Mia Phillipson, Scientific Director at SciLifeLab at Uppsala University, for an applicant with extensive technical expertise in in vivo imaging. Applicants with profound knowledge in either in vivo studies including comprehensive surgery in mice or advanced confocal microscopy could also possibly be considered.
Research group: The research group of prof. Mia Phillipson is aiming to uncover novel roles of immune cells and to find means to regulate their specific functions in settings spanning from organ development and regulation of homeostasis to tissue healing, angiogenesis and inflammation. By employing a wide range of techniques for studies of immune cell trafficking and interactions in vivo, we are delineating how immune cells are behaving in distinct organs and in different situations, as well as their diverse effector functions. Induction of specific recruitment and immune cell phenotype shifts by targeting the microenvironment are explored in combination with transgenic mouse models. Increased understanding of immune cell contribution to both detrimental and regenerative tissue states would reveal novel strategies to prevent, control and treat diseases. The Phillipson laboratory is part of a dynamic research community exploring immune cells functions in vivo as part of SciLifeLab, Uppsala University, and has a strong translational focus and experience of successful spin-offs now in clinical phase.
The Phillipson lab is equipped with state of the art technologies that enable in vivo observations of mucus dynamics, bacterial interactions with mucus, epithelium and immune cells, intravascular leukocyte-platelet-endothelial cell interactions and blood flow. Several of our imaging setups are partly developed in-house and used in conjunction with our expertise in physiology to enable longitudinal in vivo studies. In addition to our high speed confocal in vivo microscopes, we also have at our disposal several other types of microscopes as well as flow cytometry, cell sorting, protein and gene array techniques and bioinformatics support at our department of Medical Cell Biology and SciLifeLab.
Requirements: To qualify for an employment as a postdoctor you must have a PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree. The PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application deadline. The three year period can be extended due to circumstances such as sick leave, parental leave, duties in labour unions, etc.
It is an absolute requirement that the candidate is strongly self-motivated and enthusiastic about both leading projects and collaborating in the other projects of the group. Our group is a young, dynamic and very enthusiastic research team with a well-established collaborative network and strong funding. We are looking for a person that shares the same will and drive to pioneer the complex field of immunophysiology.
The candidate must have/be:
- History of first-author research publications in leading journals
- Degrees, publications or other proof of knowledge in immunology and physiology
- Well organized and motivated
- Results-driven rather than action-oriented
- Able to complete complex tasks with minimal supervision
- Excellent problem-solving, analytical, protocol development and troubleshooting skills
- High-level computer literacy (experience in advanced image analysis is a merit)
- Strong communication skills in English and the social skill to make use of them
