Eight Postdoc positions in Genomics, Proteomics, Biophysics, Metabolomics and Structural Biology

SciLifeLab, Science for Life Laboratory, is a Swedish research center within molecular biosciences with focus on health and environment. Being a joint effort by four Swedish universities (Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Uppsala University) the center offers a cross-disciplinary research setting that interacts with healthcare, public agencies and industry to meet the need for new clinical methods and a better environment. Founded in 2010, the center today encompasses more than 1 200 researchers mainly located in and around the two center nodes in Stockholm and Uppsala. SciLifeLab is also a Swedish national center with the mission to develop, use and provide advanced technologies for applications in health and environmental research. The center infrastructure encompasses a multitude of biomolecular technologies and bioinformatics services. National funding makes SciLifeLab’s services and expertise available to researchers in all of Sweden.

SciLifeLab invites applications for Postdoc/PhD student positions in the groups of our SciLifeLab Fellows.

The SciLifeLab Fellows program today encompasses 17 internationally recruited young talented group leaders who are employed by one of our four host universities and working within SciLifeLab.

 

Available positions:

 

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Computational Biology of Genome Structure and Fragility

The postdoctoral fellow will investigate the links between chromatin structure, gene expression, and DNA fragility by leading the analysis of various types of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data obtained with both standard techniques (e.g., whole-genome and targeted DNA sequencing, RNA-seq, HiC, ATAC-seq, Repli-seq, etc.) as well as custom methods developed in the Bienko and Crosetto labs.
