The University of Gothenburg tackles society's challenges with diverse knowledge. 56 000 students and 6 600 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract researchers and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.
The Institute of Biomedicine is involved in both research and education. In both of these areas, we focus on fundamental knowledge of the living cell – what it consists of, how it works, how its function is directed by the genetic material, and how it interacts with various kinds of micro-organisms. Using this knowledge, we try to elucidate the causes of diseases, and find new ways to diagnose and treat them.
The Institute is composed of the following four departments:
At present, the institute has about 340 employees and approximately 450 million SEK in total assetsDuties
The researcher will be engaged in projects focused on mechanisms that regulate initiation, growth and survival of Non-Small-Cell-Lung-Cancer ALK positive cancers and their microenvironment. The fellow will use a broad range of approaches, such as genetics, cell biology and in vivo modeling to understand/reveal upstream/downstream targets of ALK both during novel developmental processes and disease. The fellow will be involved in mouse and cell culture models of NSCLC ALK positive cancer to validate novel therapeutic strategies. Signaling pathways will be further investigated in these models with consideration of their pathological relevance.Qualifications
Doctoral degree in a relevant subject area. Methods used require knowledge in genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, and histology in/or mouse and cell culture systems. Accustomed to treating mice with medical inhibitors, screening, live imaging, knowledge of ultrasound imaging, MRI, biochemical analyzes and cell culture model systems are meritorious. Laboratory knowledge and documented training for rodents and xenograft experience is a plus.Employment
The employment is limited (temporary) for 6 months and full time 100% with placement at the Institute of biomedicine. First day of employment as agreed.Contact information for the post
