Do you want to contribute to improving human health?
Within our research team you will find a unique opportunity to work closely
together with cutting edge scientists in the intersection between immunology,
vaccinology, and public health. We offer an engaging and international
research environment where you may contribute to high quality research on an
internationally competitive level.
We are seeking a highly experienced and motivated research technician to join
our cell-mediated immunity team. You are expected to work closely together
with scientists Yu Gao and Assistant Professor Marcus Buggert. The work will
involve taking care of peripheral blood and tissue samples from Covid-19
vaccinated and infected patients as well as patients undergoing surgery. You
will prepare samples for direct analysis and for biobanking for future
research. You may also become directly involved in specific research projects,
when assistance is needed.
The applicant should have at least a Bachelor's degree in biomedicine or
similar qualifications. You should have extensive documented experience in
taking care of peripheral blood from patients as well as the preparation of
those for samples for direct analysis and for biobanking for future research.
You should furthermore have extensive experience in working with tissue
samples from humans, including experience from working in BSL-2 or BSL-3
laboratories. For the current position, characteristics such as ability to
cooperate, availability, flexibility and ability to work with the relevant
group are especially valued. Good Swedish is a merit, but not a requirement.
