PostDoc position in the Sixt Lab available

PostDoc Position – Deciphering Host-Pathogen-Interactions through High-Throughput Genetic Screening

We are currently seeking a postdoctoral researcher for a project that will apply high-throughput genetic screening (e.g. CRISPR/Cas9 screening, siRNA screening, bacterial mutant library screening) to identify key players in host-pathogen interaction, cell-autonomous immunity and immune evasion during infection with the obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen Chlamydia trachomatis.

The Sixt Lab is part of the Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) at Umeå University (located in Umeå, Sweden). MIMS is a part of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine and of the Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR), providing a stimulating, collaborative, and highly international environment with excellent access to modern research facilities. This includes for instance the high-content imaging platforms at the Chemical Biology Consortium Sweden (CBCS) in Umeå. The city Umeå itself combines a rich cultural life with exceptional closeness to nature and is particularly welcoming to internationals.
