Postdoctoral Researcher in Biology

Postdoctoral Researcher in Biology

Örebro University

Örebro, Sweden

The School of Science and Technology is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in Biology, specializing in molecular biology, for a fixed-term appointment.

Subject area

The position is in biology at the School of Science and Technology, associated with the molecular biology group which is part of the Life Science Center.

Background

The subject of biology at Örebro University focuses on research associated with living organisms, from the molecular level to the interaction between organisms, their living conditions and ecosystems. Within the biology subject, there are research groups linked to the Life Science Center. Biological research linked to the Center includes molecular biology, physiology, developmental biology and microbiology. The research groups within the Center constitute a strong and creative research environment with strong national and international collaborations and involves collaboration with industry.

The position is funded by the Knowledge Foundation and in collaboration with industry. The focus of the project is on toxicogenomic analysis of gene expression patterns in Daphnia magna and Danio rerio exposed to selected environmental contaminants and the validation of effects in the environment by droplet digital PCR analysis of population composition of indicator species.

Duties and responsibilities

The appointment as a postdoctoral researcher is intended to enable persons who have recently been awarded their doctoral degree to consolidate and develop primarily their research skills. The position focuses on research on the development of molecular biology methods and studies of the relationship between organisms' ability to control physiological functions in response to changes in the environment. The studies will be focused on how gene expression is affected by changes in the environment and how this is linked to the occurrence of indicator species in the environment. The studies require experience in using bioinformatics for gene expression analysis. The position may include up to 10% biology teaching.

Eligibility

Eligible for the appointment as postdoctoral researcher are applicants holding a doctoral degree in biology or in related subject areas. The doctoral degree should have been awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline. Candidates who have obtained their doctoral degree prior to that may however also be considered if special grounds exist (leave of absence due to illness, parental leave, clinical duties, an elected position in a trade union, or other similar circumstances).
