Postdoctoral Position in Cell Biology at Uppsala University

Uppsala University has an opening postdoctoral scholar position in bioinformatics. This position is available for three years. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply before the deadline: June 11, 2019.

1-2fully funded 2-year postdoctoral positions in the field of pancreatic islet cell biology, with focus on the role of primary cilia in the regulation of islet cell function, is available from September 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter, in the lab of Dr. Olof Idevall-Hagren.

The laboratory of OI-H consists of 2 postdocs, 2 PhD students, 1 technician and several undergraduate students. The group was formed in 2015 with the aim to understand how organelles in the insulin secreting pancreatic -cells communicate with each other, and how this communication is changed in diabetes. The laboratory techniques range from primary mouse and human cell cultures, traditional biochemistry, advanced live-cell fluorescence microscopy, development and application of molecular detectors and actuators (including optogenetics).

Requirements:We seek a highly motivated candidate with a solid background in cell biology and bioinformatics. Documented expertise in the acquisition, analysis and annotation of RNA sequencing or proteomic data sets is a requirement. The candidate is required to have strong skills in English and proven abilities to publish at a high international level with at least one first-author publications. Motivation to work independently and be responsible for the daily management of his/her research project in coordination with other members of the group is expected. The candidate will also be actively involved in the training and co-supervision of other group members and students. Shortlisting will be applied.

The three year period can be extended due to circumstances such as sick leave, parental leave, duties in labour unions, etc.
