Postdoctoral Opportunity in Structural Biology - Barandun lab

Our recently established research group seeks young investigators interested in joining our team as postdoctoral researcher. The Barandun lab uses innovative biochemical approaches combined with state-of-the-art tools in structural biology to study infection related processes in pathogenic organisms.

We are using a combination of in-vivo assays, biochemistry and cryo-electron microscopy to study macromolecular complexes of specialized pathogenic organisms (prokaryotes and eukaryotes). We aim to provide a molecular basis of key mechanisms in infection processes and uncover unique structural determinants that could serve as novel targets for antibiotics.

Postdoc in Molecular Parasitology – Bushell Lab

A postdoc fellowship is available in the group of Ellen Bushell (http://www.mims.umu.se/groups/ellen-bushell.html ) at the Department of Molecular Biology at Umeå University, Sweden and Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS), (www.mims.umu.se). MIMS is the Swedish node in the Nordic EMBL Partnership in Molecular Medicine.

Background: Malarial disease is caused when protozoan malaria parasites invade and grow within red blood cells. The ability of the parasite to cytoadhere and thereby sequester to organs is critical for the parasite to cause disease, and is in turn dependent on the export of a large number of parasite proteins. We investigate the role of exported proteins in host-parasite interactions during malaria infections. We work primarily with the rodent malaria parasite Plasmodium berghei, which uniquely allows us to study these interactions in vivo. We are now looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our growing team

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 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.
