Om jobbet

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.

Job assignments

The person will be responsible for experiments to understand DNA/RNA protein interactions in cancer model (Neuroblastoma) and in SARS-CoV-2 RNA (Covid19) biology. The study will involve characterization of DNA and RNA protein interaction using in vitro assays and to apply observations from in vitro experiments in cancer the context of cell biology and virology. The responsibility will include protein purification, enzymatic assay, nucleic acid hybridization, electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA), protein-protein interaction using co-immunoprecipitation (Co-IP). The person will have the opportunity to collaborate within and outside the groups and learn new techniques to address basic biological question in the fields of cancer biology and virology.
