The University of Gothenburg tackles society's challenges with diverse knowledge. 49 000 students and 6 400 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists 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:

* The Department of Infectious Diseases
* The Department of Microbiology and Immunology
* The Department of Medical Biochemistry and Cell Biology
* The Department of Laboratory Medicine

At present, the institute has about 360 employees and approximately 440 million SEK in total assets

Subject area
Medical Biochemistry and Cell Biology

Subject area description
The overall aim of the project is to increase our understanding of the molecular basis of the upstream/downstream targets of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) receptor tyrosine kinase.

Job assignments
The postdoctoral fellow will be engaged in projects focused on mechanisms that regulate initiation, growth and survival of ALK positive neuroblastom and the microenvironment. The fellow will use a broad range of approaches, such as genetics, cell biology and in vivo Drosophila models to understand/reveal upstream/downstream targets of ALK both during developmental processes and disease. The fellow will be involved in analysis of Drosophila models of ALK positive neuroblastoma to validate novel therapeutic strategies. Signaling pathways will be further investigated in these models with consideration of their pathological relevance.

Eligibility
An achieved doctoral degree is compulsory for a position as postdoctor at Göteborg University. The doctoral thesis shall be in a relevant area according to the specific position stated here. Since a position as postdoctor aims to give new holders of the doctorate the opportunity mainly to strengthen and develop their scholarly proficiency, we aim for those who have a doctoral degree not older than 3 years counting from last date of application.

The qualifications for academic positions are given in Chapter 4, Section 3 - 4 of the Higher Education Ordinance.

Assessment
A high level of English communication and writing skills are an important requirement. The candidate is expected to be active in designing and implementing their projects, and also to collaborate closely with other members of the team. The methods employed in the project used require knowledge in genetics, cell biology, biochemistry in Drosophila and cell culture systems. Experience of treating Drosophila with inhibitors, screening, live imaging, and biochemical analysis and cell culture model systems are a merit. Laboratory knowledge and documented experience with Drosophila is a requirement.

Regulations for the evaluation of qualifications for academic positions are given in Chapter 4, Section 3 - 4 of the Higher Education Ordinance.

Employment
The employment is full time and temporary, two years, with placement at the Institute of Biomedicine. First day of employment as agreed.
