Postdoctor in Chemical Biology at Lund University

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher position in medicinal chemistry to join Lund University. The initial contract for this position is 2 years and posible to extend. Candidates are welcome before October 06, 2019.

The Faculty of Medicine is a part of Lund University, and is responsible for education and research within medicine and healthcare. Our academic programs are closely linked with the healthcare system and are firmly anchored in the faculty's strong research tradition. Our research spans a broad field within experimental preclinical research, near-patient clinical research and health sciences research. The Faculty of Medicine, with its 1,800 employees and 2,700 students in Lund and Malm, is a knowledge-intensive meeting place for students, teachers and researchers from all over the world.

Postdoctor in Chemical Biology: evaluation of self-organizing conducting molecular systems in zebrafish

The Chemical Biology & Therapeutics is a multidisciplinary team at Lund University and University of Gothenburg that explore new therapeutic strategies using organic/medicinal chemistry, in-vivo/in-vitro biology, and applied physics. The lab was recently awarded funding for studying in-vivo assembled therapeutics and for an Electronic Neuropharma project (e-NeuroPharma), aiming to address CNS disorders by self-assembled therapeutics. In thee-Neuropharmaeffort, we will develop self-organizing molecular systems that exert both pharmaceutical activity and electrical functionality to explore new therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases. The latter is a collaboration with the organic bioelectronic team at Linkping University.

The Postdoctor will essentially carry out research at Lund University. The primary focus will be analyzing self-organized therapeutics targeting CNS/PNS in animal models, preferentially in zebrafish, but also in other models e.g., insects (locust) and organoids.

PhD degree in biology, neuroscience or corresponding Documented practical experience in electrophysiology, preferably use of microelectrodes in vitro, in vivo, or both Practical experience in zebrafish dissection, microinjections and fluorescence microscopy

The Chemical Biology & Therapeutics lab is a small multidisciplinary team, we are looking for a team member that is a strong team player and someone who is not afraid of diverse work assignments and at the same time is an expert, the main driver, and knowledge sharer within their own field of expertise.The postdoctor must be able to work independently, have excellent communication skills and have the ability to collaborate with people.

Research at the Chemical Biology & Therapeutics Laboratory and collaborators is carried out predominantly in English. Excellent English (speaking, writing) is therefore a requirement for the position.

Practical experience in experimental zebrafish studies Practical experience in immunofluorescence and other fluorescent biomarkers Good knowledge of neurobiology (preferably fish neuroanatomy) and general fish anatomy

Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the applicant has a PhD, or an international degree deemed equivalent to a PhD, within the subject of the position, completed no more than three years before the last date for applications. Under special circumstances, the doctoral degree can have been completed earlier.

This is a full-time, fixed-term employment of a maximum of 2 years. The period of employment is determined in accordance with the agreement "Avtal om tidsbegrnsad anstllning som postdoktor" ("Agreement on fixed-term employment as a post-doctoral fellow") between Lund University, SACO-S, OFR/S and SEKO, dated 4 September 2008.

Deadline: October 06, 2019
