The task is to develop and analyze transporters for protein-based drugs. The goal of the project is to manage to get protein-based drugs into the brain and into nerve cells. If we manage we would facilitate treatment and diagnostics of targets that presently are difficult for biological drugs to reach. Our main target is to start with proteins involved in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
To be eligibility for a position as a Post-doc the applicant must hold a PhD or equivalent. The applicants PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application date. The PhD can be older than three years if there are special circumstances. Such special circumstances ac be periods of sick leave, parental leave etc., which are deducted from the three-year period.
Qualified to be employed as a postdoc are the ones with a PhD in biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology or similar field.
Experience with working with cells is a requirement. We are looking for a motivated person, with good communication and collaboration skills that can work independently and that contributes to the good atmosphere in the group.
It is desirable that the candidate have experience with working with both primary cultures and cell cultures. A FELASA certificate and experience from working with mice would be beneficial and especially experience from working with administration of biological drugs and analysis of their function in mice. Experience from protein expression in mammalian cells, protein purification and different biochemical analyses of proteins would be valuable. Knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease would also be useful.
