Qualification Details

Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who- have completed a second-cycle degree- have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or- have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.

The employment of doctoral students is regulated in the Swedish Code of Statues 1998: 80. Only those who are or have been admitted to PhD-studies may be appointed to doctoral studentships. When an appointment to a doctoral studentship is made, the ability of the student to benefit from PhD-studies shall primarily be taken into account. In addition to devoting themselves to their studies, those appointed to doctoral studentships may be required to work with educational tasks, research and administration, in accordance with specific regulations in the ordinance.

  • A MSc degree in Biochemistry, biomedicine or similar.
  • Knowledge on molecular cloning techniques.
  • Knowledge on lentiviral particle generation.
  • The ability to work independently in the laboratory.
  • The ability to communicate well with co-workers and to collaborate with other scientists.
  • Very good skills in English.

Great emphasis will be placed on personal qualities.We are searching for applicants with good collaboration skills, drive and independence, as well as how the applicant, through his or her experience and competence, is judged to have the ability needed to complete the doctoral program.

Merits for the employment are:

  • Good knowledge of the cellular reprogramming or cancer immunotherapy
  • Fields Experience in animal handling
  • Ability to work independent

The project is interdisciplinary and therefore candidates with a broad competence profile will be of particular interest.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The main objectives for the doctoral candidate will be to conduct research education, which includes participation in and development of research projects but also to master graduate courses and state-of-the-art techniques. The majority of this work must be done independently and in collaboration with both internal and external members of the research group.

The position contains work on the development of a novel direct reprogramming strategy of tumor cells into antigen presenting cells. The goal is to utilize the technology developed in vitro to 1) uncover new regulators of cross-presentation, 2) test this approach to identify neoantigens and 3) test the efficacy of in vivo reprogramming. The successful candidate will be performing molecular cloning, lentiviral productions, work with mouse models, and also support the group by performing general laboratory organization and administration.
