1-2 Postdocs in Microbiology at Uppsala University

Uppsala University, Sweden is inviting applicants to apply for a postdoc position in molecular biology. Eligible candidates should submit the applications before February 10, 2019.

Project description

The proposed project will take place in an active research group at the department of Cell and Molecular biology. The focus of this research group lies in understanding the role of bacterial toxin delivery systems in biology. Bacterial toxin delivery (e.g. bacteriocins, type 6 secretion and contact-dependent growth inhibition systems) has previously been shown to be important for antagonistic interactions, allowing bacteria with these systems a competitive advantage in environments where resources for growth are scarce and shared with other bacteria. In this project the focus is to investigate how toxin delivery affects bacterial communication, biofilm formation, evolution and ability to colonize a host.


We are looking for highly-motivated applicants with a PhD degree in a microbiology, molecular biology or similar. The candidate is expected to be able to work independently and to have a strong interest in bacterial interactions. In addition, the candidate is expected to take own initiatives as well as to collaborate with colleagues both within and outside of the research group. Ability to perform advanced microbiological and molecular biological tasks as well as simple bioinformatic analyses and SDS-page / western blot is required. The position is in an international context so good oral and written communication skills in English are essential. Finally, significant weight will be given to personal suitability such as; analytical and organizational skills, personal maturity, ability to work with others, take initiatives, and to show good judgement.

- Documented ability to construct advanced genetic mutations in bacterial genomes, perform flow cytometry, microscopy, infections in cell-culture and mice as well as protein biochemistry is highly meriting.
