Responsibilities/Job Description

We are looking for a highly motivated and talented research assistant to support research projects in the lab of Professor Sten Eirik Jacobsen ( The position and corresponding research projects are focused on modelling of normal and malignant hematopoiesis and hematopoietic stem cell biology in genetically modified mouse models, and will be funded by existing grants.

Your mission

About the research labs

The Jacobsen lab comprises an international collaborative team focused on understanding at the single cell level the cellular and molecular pathways governing the earliest fate decisions in normal hematopoiesis [1-4] and how these are dysregulated in hematologic malignancies [5-9]. This is studied in mouse models, as well as in relevant patients. Key technologies applied towards these research questions include high-throughput DNA and RNA sequencing including single cell analysis, genetic fate-mapping using next-generation-sequencing technology, flow cytometry, mouse genetics and various in vitro and in vivo stem cell assays.

Job description

The work will be conducted under the supervision of Professor Sten Eirik Jacobsen. The position is focused on supporting studies aimed at unraveling normal cellular and molecular pathways governing lineage commitment from hematopoietic stem cells and malignant transformation. Projects will be pursued in part at the Center for Hematology and Regenerative Medicine (HERM;, and in part at the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB; The Jacobsen lab also have close interactions with other world leading research groups, and the recruited candidates will benefit from interactions in this highly collaborative network

All projects largely utilize mouse models of normal and malignant hematopoiesis but also require access to relevant patient material. The position will be directed towards supporting investigators with their experiments. In addition to the entry requirements, the candidate will be responsible for organizing common lab resources, such as equipment, reagents and lab infrastructure.
