The Henriksson lab is seeking two postdoctoral scientists to work on Project 1) in CAR T cells and CRISPR screening methods development, or on Project 2) in machine learning for single-cell data analysis. You will be based in the lab of Johan Henriksson (www.henlab.org). The Henriksson lab is based at the Department of Molecular Biology and is part of The Laboratory of Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS), which is the Swedish node within the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine.

Applications are reviewed as they come in.

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
