Postdoctoral for all nationalities in Biology (Infection Biology) Sweden

Several positions/fellowships are open for candidates interested in doing postdoctoral research in the highly interactive and multidisciplinary research environment UCMR – Umeå Centre for Microbial Research at Umeå University, Sweden. UCMR includes The Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) – the Swedish node of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine.MIMS-UCMR researchers combine a strong molecular infection biology programme with chemical biology to clarify molecular mechanisms of microbial infections and aim to develop novel sustainable strategies to combat the increasing problems with microbial resistance to current antibiotics. We aim to recruit new postdoctoral scientists with competence and ideas that will strengthen the research environment and contribute to its renewal.

The programme is open to all nationalities and features of the positions include: • Development of a project proposal forms the basis for recruitment • Funding for research within a multidisciplinary environment • Two years of secure funding • Access to MIMS-UCMR core facilities and technical platforms. Candidates for the UCMR-MIMS postdoc programme are encouraged to design their own research project based on one of the UCMR-MIMS project ideas listed in the programme call on our web page (link below). These ideas should then be developed into research project proposals by the candidates.

A project PI should be contacted for discussion of the project and the application before submission. The candidates’ merits and project proposals will be assessed by a panel of UCMR researchers and a selected group of applicants will then be invited for on-line interviews. Thereafter it will be decided if some applicants will be offered a postdoctoral position.

The number of positions that will be filled is not predetermined but can be a maximum of nine. Applications should be submitted by 17 August 2015.
