Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?

Our group does research on precision cancer medicine with the aim of optimizing treatments for individual cancer patients based on molecular profiling and functional drug testing. Our goal is to develop a systems biology framework to match targeted therapies and drug combinations using omics- profiling and drug testing.

Your mission

Your mission is to be part and help in a leading research environment for functional precision systems medicine research. The responsibilities include primary cell model and conventional cell line culture linked to high throughput drug re-purpose testing in addition to general lab management such as maintenance and ordering. The tasks also include experimentation with classical molecular biology technologies, maintenance of cell culture areas and preparation of DNA/RNA/protein samples from tissue, cells, and blood for -omics analyses. The applicant will also be expected to perform basic data analysis and enter the data to research databases, regularly present and communicate the scientific results both in written and oral format, as well as help in teaching of common laboratory techniques to group members.

Your tasks will include assisting our researchers in acute myeloid leukemia research, including high throughput testing and flow and mass cytometric sample preparations. You will be expected to communicate and present your results clearly in English.

Your profile

You hold an MSc in a relevant field, such as biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, medical biotechnology. Hands-on experience in tissue and cell culture techniques is required, including experience in primary cell cultures. Applicants with experience in high-throughput screening techniques, flow cytometry and primary culture technologies, will be prioritized. The applicant should be fluent in English and proficiency in written/spoken Swedish is valued, and be able to utilize standard computer programs. The candidate should be self-driven and possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills, be service-minded and enjoy working with others. The individual should also be organized, responsible, demonstrate good research practices and willing to learn new techniques.
