Om jobbet

The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 47 500 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 370 employees and approximately 400 million SEK in total assets.

Job assignments

The group focuses on the development of cancer immunotherapies and is involved in clinical trials in hematology and solid cancer. In addition, the group studies the effects of cancer immunotherapies in several preclinical mouse models.

The researcher will work on a cancer vaccine oriented project and the job assignments include the design and construction of targeted fusion-vaccine candidates, as well of testing these vaccines in murine tumor models.

Qualifications

The applicant should hold a PhD in immunology, biomedicine, microbiology with orientation towards immunology, molecular biology, hematology or oncology. The applicant should have solid and documented experience from animal experiments. Documented knowledge on murine tumor models and on the design of fusion-vaccines are desirable. Likewise, post-doctoral experience in these areas are regarded as strong merits. 

 

Employment

The employment is limited (temporary) for 5 months and full-time with placement at the Institute of Biomedicine. First day of employment as agreed.
