Prof. Oliver Billker, director of MIMS, professor at the Department of Molecular Biology, seeks a postdoc to a project in Molecular mechanisms of development and mosquito transmission of malaria parasites. The position is full-time and for two years, access 1 May 2023 or upon agreement.
As part of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine, the host Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden, MIMS, is closely integrated with a European excellence network, its advanced research infrastructure and international networking opportunities.
Application deadline: 23 March 2023
Project description and work tasks
We are an interdisciplinary team of experimentalists, analysts and modellers, who work together closely to address important questions of malaria parasite development and transmission. We are now looking for an experimental geneticist for projects funded by the European Research Council and the Wallenberg Foundation. Aim of the position is to study the biology of sexual development and transmission of malaria parasite and their interactions with the vector. We seek to gain a genome-level mechanistic understanding of malaria transmission to get at the questions of vector competence and develop transmission blocking strategies.
