Qualification Details

Applications from highly motivated candidates are welcome. The successful candidate should have a Bachelor or Master of Science in Pharmaceutics, Drug Discovery and Development, Chemical/biochemical engineering, Biomedicine or similarly relevant field, and have good communication skills in oral and written English. Previous experience of any of the core subjects are meritorious.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The research assistant will work in the area of vaginal drug delivery systems with the aim to develop a long-acting, mucus-penetrating drug delivery device for local application in the vagina to provide simple and efficacious treatment women’s diseases, such as vaginal infections or endometriosis. The drug delivery system will be based on particle-stabilized emulsions and liposomes. These formulations will be loaded into the tip of dissolving microneedles. The project will use relevant in vitro and ex vivo vaginal models to study the mucus-penetrating properties of the microneedles and the drug release.

SciLifeLab ( is a Swedish national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research. The center combines frontline technical expertise with advanced knowledge of translational medicine and molecular bioscience. SciLifeLab is hosted by four Swedish universities (Uppsala University, Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University) and collaborates with several other universities.

The research group: The research assistant will be linked to the research group Molecular Pharmaceutics. The group takes a multidisciplinary approach and combines computational chemistry and bioinformatics with cell- and molecular biology, biopharmaceutics, pharmaceutics and physical chemistry to find new ways to predict and define rate-limiting barriers to the absorption and organ distribution of different types of drugs. We anticipate that our research will provide insights into new mechanisms for drug absorption, disposition and delivery, which will support development of new therapeutic strategies for efficient oral drug delivery. More information at Bergstrom. The position is placed in the research group of Alexandra Teleki (Teleki group ) who is associated with SciLifeLab. The overall goal of the Teleki research group is to transform innovative nanomedical approaches to clinically relevant, patient-compliant diagnosis and treatment.
