The postdoctoral fellow will be placed in the newly established Gallant research group situated in the Molecular Tools research unit at the Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology. The group is focused on developing and applying tools for single cell analysis and functional genetic approaches.
The post-doctoral position is funded by a Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) consortium grant focused on systems microscopy to study cancer cell migration. For the project, the post-doctoral fellow will be responsible for developing and applying oligonucleotide-antibody reagents for multiplex single cell protein or combined RNA and protein single cell analysis.
Your specific responsibilities include: antibody-oligonucleotide conjugation, cell culture, designing, setting up and running proximity ligation or extension assays, and single cell RNA sequencing including Illumina sequencing library preparation.
The candidate has a PhD degree in molecular biology, biomedical science, biotechnology or a similar discipline. Previous molecular biology experience with high-throughput DNA, RNA and antibody-based protein analysis is required.
Your work is both diligent and thorough. You enjoy learning new methods and developing new protocols and techniques.
The position will require both significant independent work and collaboration with others within the lab, the Molecular Tools unit and the SSF-supported consortium. You are highly engaged in your work and have excellent communication skills. Computer and English proficiency are essential. Interpersonal skills will be highly valued.
