PhD Position in Invertebrate Immunology at Uppsala University

Uppsala University is delighted to offer a PhD position in molecular biology. The deadline for applying is January 25, 2019.

Duties:Blood cells play a key role in the invertebrates to prevent microbes from damaging the animal. The research group studies how the formation of these blood cells / hemocytes is regulated, and how the stem cells that generate hemocytes are also involved in nerve cell formation in adult animals. The main focus for this project is to understand the hematopoietic process and adult neurogenesis in invertebrates using the freshwater crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus as a model animal. The PhD student will focus on this connection between the circulatory and the nervous system by studies of hematopoiesis in Pacifastacus leniusculus.

Requirements:A Master degree (or equivalent) in a relevant field is a requirement. The ideal candidate has high motivation, a solid education and a great interest in immunology, and stem cell development. Previous experience in molecular biology, biochemistry or cell biology. The candidate must be fluent in English in speech and writing.

The PhD-student position is a 4-year appointment, and the candidate will primarily devote the time to his/her own research studies. Other departmental work, such as teaching or administration can be part of the position (maximum 20 %). Salary placement is in accordance with local guidelines at Uppsala University. The applicant must be eligible for PhD studies at Uppsala University.
