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
Job assignmentsPathology involves studies on etiology and pathogenesis of diseases. The aim of this position as postdoctoral fellow is to study expression of glycogenin in human muscle tissue in relation to muscle disease by analysis of RNA and protein expression including qPCR, immunohistochemistry and western blot analysis. Other techniques and tissue culturing may be included. The projects also involve mitochondrial diseases. Participation in our undergraduate teaching programs is included.
QualificationsDocumented skills in extraction of DNA/RNA and protein, western blot, q-PCR, immunohistochemistry, protein interaction analyses, cell culturing and transfection.
Especially qualifying are experiences from research on glycogenin and muscle diseases and general knowledge in the field. Experience from work with human muscle tissue is indispensable as well as experience in cryosectioning for morphology and immunohistochemistry. Experience of single cell dissection from cryostat sections is mandatory.
Documented teaching skills are important in the evaluation of the applicant.
EmploymentThe employment is limited (temporary) for 12 months and full-time with placement at the Institute of Biomedicine. First day of employment as agreed.
