The University of Gothenburg tackles society's challenges with diverse knowledge. 37 000 students and 6 000 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 University of Gothenburg promotes equal opportunities, equality and diversity.

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 behaves during development. Using this knowledge, we try to elucidate the causes of diseases, and find new ways to diagnose and treat them.
The Institute has about 350 employees and is composed of the following five departments:
* The Department of Infectious Diseases
* The Department of Microbiology and Immunology
* The Department of Pathology and Genetics
* The Department of Clinical Chemistry and Transfusion Medicine
* The Department of Medical Biochemistry and Cell BioSubject area

Job assignments

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.

The researcher will be engaged in projects focused on mechanisms that regulate initiation, growth and survival neuroblastoma/ Non-Small-Cell-Lung-Cancer (NSCLC)/ALK positive cancers and their microenvironment. The researcher 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 researcher will be involved in mouse and cell culture models of neuroblastoma/ 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

An achieved doctoral degree is compulsory for the position. The doctoral thesis shall be in a relevant area according to the specific position stated here. 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. Methods employed require knowledge in genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, and histology. Knowledge with mouse models as well as experience working with cell culture systems is a requirement. Laboratory knowledge and documented training regarding handling/working with mice and experience in xenografts is a requirement. Drug treatment and screening, live imaging, knowledge of ultra sound imaging, MRI, biochemical assays, and cell culture model systems are an advantage.
