Subject area description We are in the process of recruiting postdoctoral fellows within medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, or other relevant subject area to an interdisciplinary industrial research centre aimed at addressing next generation drug development.The rapid development of RNA and other oligonucleotide drug modalities is about to entirely change the drug discovery arena. But with these promising high molecular weight drug candidates we are also facing new and challenging problems; discovery and development of functional delivery solutions for RNA-based drugs is of importance for clinical success. To meet this challenge, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) has decided to invest in eight years of interdisciplinary and intersectional research. This has resulted in the foundation of FoRmulaEx - an industrial research centre (IRC) for functional RNA delivery. Headed by Chalmers University of Technology and with AstraZeneca as the lead industrial partner, the centre, which also includes Gothenburg University, Karolinska Institutet and additional partner companies, will enable academic research to bridge existing knowledge gaps and drive innovation in this area of high interest. Our goal is to create fundamental knowledge and novel technologies that will allow successful translation of RNA modalities into the clinic. This is thus a unique opportunity to work in a scientific and engineering area of great importance in a novel setting with industry and excellent calibre academic groups from various disciplines working hand in hand.FoRmulaEx now invites applications for postdoc positions from exceptional physicists, chemists and biologists who want to join our team and are motivated to address the RNA delivery challenge. Successful candidates will be hired to fully funded positions at our three academic nodes: Chalmers University of Technology (up to 6 open positions) with principal investigators Fredrik Höök, Elin Esbjörner and Marcus Wilhelmsson, Gothenburg University (1 open position) with principal investigator Hadi Valadi and Karolinska Institutet (up to 3 open positions) with principal investigators Molly Stevens and Samir El-Andaloussi, in close collaboration with AstraZeneca and the additional partner companies: Camurus, Vironova, Evox and Gothenburg Sensor Devices.For more information: FoRmulaEx are recruiting to the following projects (click links to read more):
1) Lipid Nanoparticle Generation and Characterization
2) RNA Synthesis, Fluorescence-based Probe Design and Characterization
3) Novel Imaging Tools and Cellular Particle Tracking
4) Cellular Uptake and Intracellular Trafficking Mechanisms
5) Quantification of Endosomal Escape and Functional Delivery
6) Exosome Biology and RNA-loading
Academic Partners: Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg University, Karolinska Institutet.Industrial Partners: AstraZeneca, Camurus, Vironova, Evox and Gothenburg Sensor Devices. Project number 5 (Quantification of Endosomal Escape and Functional Delivery), is the project that is placed at the Institute of Medicine, University of Gothenburg. You apply for this project at the University of Gothenburg website. If you want to apply for any of the other projects, you need to apply at the websites of Chalmers University of Technology and/or Karolinska Institutet.
Job assignments
The goal with a postdoc is to develop general research proficiency and a high competence within your specific research
area. As a postdoc, you will conduct research in an independent manner; however, often together with other researchers
and PhD-students. You are expected to drive the project forward and independently seek for opportunities to present the
work to the international research community, including participations in international conferences and networks.
The project (Quantification of Endosomal Escape and Functional Delivery) aims to identify the fate of transferred RNA in
cells, e.g. translocation, translation, and degradation. However, the purpose of this study is to perform experiments along
these lines using e.g. RNA FISH, RNA hybridization, Image streaming and qPCR.
To qualify as a postdoctoral researcher for this project (Quantification of Endosomal Escape and Functional Delivery) the
applicant should hold a PhD in medicine, or another relevant subject. Since postdoctoral constitutes a qualifying
appointment for junior researchers, we aim to target those who have a doctoral degree not older than 3 years from the
application deadline.
Den sökande skall ha god vetenskaplig skicklighet inom det aktuella forskningsområdet, specifikt inom RNA biologi,
inklusive biokemi av RNA-bindande proteiner.
Dessutom krävs att du har god potential inom undervisning, forskning och utbildning.
* Du ska visa på innovativ forskning, vilket kommer bedömas utifrån dina publikationer
* Goda kunskaper i engelska, både i tal och skrift
* Du bör trivas i en miljö där samarbete krävs
How to apply
In order to apply for a position at the University of Gothenburg, you have to register an account in our online recruitment
system. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the
instructions in the job advertisement, and that it is submitted before the deadline. The selection of candidates is made on
the basis of the qualifications registered in the application.
Your employment shall include:
CV (Please name the document as: CV, Surname, Ref. number) including:
* CV, include complete list of publications
* Previous teaching and pedagogical experiences
* Two references that we can contact.
Personal letter (Please name the document as: Personal letter, Family name, Ref. number) including:
* 1-3 pages where you introduce yourself and present your qualifications.
* Previous research fields and main research results.
* Future goals and research focus. Are there any specific projects and research issues you are primarily interested in?
Other documents
* Attested copies of completed education, grades and other certificates
