Open position: Postdoc scholarship in virology/infectious diseases in the Fors Connolly lab

The Department of Clinical Microbiology at Umeå University is seeking a postdoctoral research fellowship in virology/infectious diseases. The fellowship is for two years full time.

The position will be carried out in Dr Fors Connolly´s research group, who is also a MIMS Clinical Research Fellow. The position is interdisciplinary with clinicians, statisticians, epidemiologists and biomedical researchers. Recently, the research group of Fors Connolly published an epidemiological paper in The Lancet regarding the association between COVID-19 and acute cardiovascular events. The research focus is on determining underlying mechanisms of disease pathogenesis of COVID-19, Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome and Influenza.

Apply before 31 January 2022.

Master student thesis projects in the Henriksson lab

Master thesis projects available in advanced molecular biology protocol development, of relevance for CAR T cells and malaria high-throughput screening! Hard working students who are prepared to roll up their sleeves and move out of their comfort zone are most welcome to apply :)

We are developing several protocols to improve the efficiency of pooled CRISPR or barseq screens, where extracting more information about each cell will boost the statistics. This is especially important when the cells are few (primary cells) or the expansion is uneven (in vivo screens). The project may also be combined with bioinformatics (python, R or java) based on student interests.

Keywords: Cloning, sequencing, inverse PCR, padlock probes, UMIs, mate pairing, HiC, ATACseq, RNAseq, CRISPR, cell culture, lentiviruses, bioinformatics

PostDoc or PhD Position in the Henriksson Lab

Understanding CAR T cells through machine learning and advanced bioinformatics

Johan Henriksson, a MIMS group leader, is currently seeking a postdoctoral researcher or PhD student to dissect T cell regulation using single-cell methods and CRISPR screening. While the overall goal is to develop CAR T-cell technology, this position is geared towards sharpening our analysis methods. Of particular interest include better statistics for CRISPR-UMI pooled screens, gene regulation (ATAC-seq, HiC) and gene isoforms (RNA-seq).

Candidates who are strong in any of computer science, mathematics, statistics or machine learning are encouraged to apply. An interest in learning biology is essential and some basic insight will already help plenty. An overview of what we do, and contact information, can be found at http://henlab.org/
