Research Area: Computational Microscopy for Cell Biology, with a focus on investigating T-cell activation and autoimmunity.
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Eligibility/Qualification: Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country. The degree must have been completed no more than three years before the closing date. Special attention will be given to research skills in immunology and fluorescence microscopy sample preparation.
Job Description: The successful candidate will take an active part in CMCB lab’s daily research, with a particular focus on using super resolution microscopy to investigate T-cell activation and autoimmunity. They will perform a range of biochemistry, imaging, and cutting-edge machine learning analysis methods developed at CMCB, building up on their clear understanding of the underlying biological issue. Both live-cell and fixed cell imaging are of interest to this project, and the candidate will be expected to design and optimize novel protocols enabling to image T-cell activation and interaction with advanced light microscopy.
How to Apply: Interested candidates should apply through Stockholm University’s recruitment system. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the job advertisement, and that it is submitted before the deadline. Applicants should include their contact details and personal data, highest degree, language skills, contact details for 2-3 references, a cover letter, CV, research proposal, copy of their PhD diploma, letters of recommendation, and publications in support of their application.
