Postdoc in T cell systems biology (Lab of Johan Henriksson)

Are you a physicist, a mathematician, a programmer, or a technically savvy biologist? Want to see how far we model the most complex system (un)known to mankind? Our lab might be the place for you! Send your CV and tell us what you might want to do. Below are the two “archetypes” we are generally looking for. Don’t worry about not knowing everything, we will teach you along the ride! It is generally best to focus one one side (dry or wet) but you will be expected to dabble on both sides. You can’t analyze data for an experiment you don’t understand, and you shouldn’t design an experiment unless you have a plan for analyzing it.

If you are looking for a postdoc then we will together write an application for a fellowship. Though the budget may have space for another position in the meanwhile

Keywords: ATAC-seq, RNA-seq, metabolomics, proteomics, single-cell, bayesian statistics, molecular biology, cloning, tensorflow, transcription factors, lipids, viruses, HIV, T cells, immunology, infection models, circadian rhythm, cytokines

Postdoctoral Opportunity in Structural Biology (Jonas Barandun's lab)

SciLifeLab 82047 logo greenA postdoctoral candidate is welcome to join the new lab of Jonas Barandun at MIMS and Umeå University to study infection related processes in pathogenic organisms with state-of-the-art cryo-electron microscopy combined with biochemical techniques. The project involves establishing genomic manipulation tools, reconstitution of a unique infection mechanism in heterologous expression systems and structural studies using cryo-electron tomography and single particle analysis.

Postdoctoral Positions in Microbiology, Chemometrics and Analytical Chemistry (Cavalab)

The Cava lab at the Laboratory of Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) and the Department of Molecular Biology (Umeå University) studies cell wall biology and genetics in bacteria. Our goal is to improve the inventory of players in cell wall biogenesis, remodelling and regulation, characterize the function and interplay of known components, and evolve our work into quantitative studies and computational modelling. Gathered data will have an extraordinary potential as novel targets for the development of antimicrobials.

We are currently recruiting three postdocs in microbiology, chemometrics and analytical chemistry.

Postdoc opportunity in molecular genetics of human intestinal Bacteroidetes

The intestinal microbiome impacts health throughout the entire human body. Because of this, it has become important to understand how it is built and maintained. The project concerns the study of human gut Bacteroidetes, which are prominent members of the gut microbiome. A pipeline to observe multiple genes by functionality tests, biochemistry and structural biology will be implemented to study putative intestinal colonisation factors in vitro. The successful candidate will develop a project with state of the art techniques of molecular biology, mutagenesis and microscopy. The fellowship is for 2 years and it is available from July 1st 2019 but cannot start later than 1st of October.

Postdoc project - Drug Discovery and Cell-Autonomous Immunity (Barbara Sixt's lab)

Postdoc project (Drug Discovery and Cell-Autonomous Immunity)

This projects aims to identify and characterize small chemical compounds that can counteract growth of the obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis either by activating cell-autonomous defense responses in infected cells or by repressing the pathogen’s ability to counteract these cellular defenses. The project is expected to provide deeper insights into mechanisms of host-pathogen interaction and to uncover starting points for the development of new host-directed or anti-virulence drugs.
