Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.
The Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology at Uppsala University (www.igp.uu.se) has a broad research profile with strong research groups focused on cancer, autoimmune and genetic diseases. A fundamental idea at the department is to stimulate translational research and thereby closer interactions between medical research and health care. Research is presently conducted in the following areas: medical and clinical genetics, clinical immunology, pathology, neuro-oncology, vascular biology, radiation science and molecular tools. Department activities are also integrated with the units for Oncology, Clinical Genetics, Clinical Immunology, Clinical Pathology, and Hospital Physics at Akademiska sjukhuset, Uppsala. The department has teaching assignments in several education programmes, including Master Programmes, at the Faculty of Medicine, and in a number of educations at the Disciplinary Domain of Science and Technology. The department has a yearly turnover of around SEK 400 million, out of which more than half is made up of external funding. The staff amounts to approximately 340 employees, out of which 100 are PhD-students, and there are in total more than 600 affiliated people.
Postdoctoral position/researcher in the group of Patrick Micke "Integrative lung cancer pathology". http://www.igp.uu.se/forskning/klinisk_experimentell_patologi/patrick-micke/
Our group is focusing on tissue based cancer research. Lung cancer tissue is analysed by advanced molecular techniques (RNA sequencing, multiplex immunofluoresence, next generation sequencing and Nanostring). The research also includes immunohistochemical classifications of the cancer microenvironment in respect to immune cell infiltration and other important tumor and stromal features. This results in large multidimensional data sets that are evaluated bioinformatically in connection with patient parameters (survival, response to therapy, etc.). Particular areas of interest are immune therapeutic mechanism for clinical diagnostics.
The post doc should be responsible for the infrastructure and will perform the analysis in cooperation with different facilities (Clinical Pathology, Molecular Pathology, SciLife). The post doc will organize the data and will establish new molecular analysis. Additional cell biological experiments may complement patient based results. The post doc has the opportunity to perform independent projects by him- or herself, including publications and may supervise PhD students. The research group is small but highly productive which requires collaborative and social competencies.
The requirements for the post doc position are that you completed your PhD or a foreign degree that is regarded as comparable to a doctoral thesis. The degree must have been completed in the last three years. If there are special reasons, the degree may have been completed earlier. The ability to work both independently but also in a team is very important. The application should include a CV, copies of diplomas including grades, publications and a short description of your research interests. The applications will be assessed based on eligibility requirements, achievements in related research areas, and personal suitability.
Bioinformatic, histopathologic or cell experimental experience are of advantage.
Uppsala University values the qualities that even gender distribution and diversity add to the research environment. We therefore welcome applicants of any gender and with different birth background, functionality and life experience.
The application should include a CV, copies of exams, degrees and grades, contact details of two references and a short description of the applicant and his/her experience. Letter(s) of recommendation may be included.
