Researcher position in Computational Chemistry/Biology

 


Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our ultimate goal is to conduct education and research of the highest quality and relevance to make a long-term difference in society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has over 45,000 students, more than 7,000 employees and a turnover of around SEK 7 billion.

The Department of Cell and Molecular Biology is one of the most international, broad and distinguished molecular bioscience departments in Europe. The department comprises six research programs with about 130 employees (http://www.icm.uu.se). The position is available in Jens Carlsson’s group in the computational biology and bioinformatics programme. Jens Carlsson’s research focuses on using molecular modeling to study protein-ligand interactions, in particular G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and their interactions with drugs. The GPCR superfamily constitutes the largest group of human membrane proteins and plays key roles in physiological processes. The Carlsson group uses structure-based models to understand receptor function and to design ligands of these pharmaceutically important targets, often in close collaboration with experimental groups. The Carlsson group is an international research team and is also part of the Science for Life Laboratory (http://www.scilifelab.se/). Visit the group website for more information (www.carlssonlab.org).

Duties/Project description: The project is focused on developing and applying methods to study how neurotransmitters bind to receptors using molecular simulations. A central aim of the project is to understand the evolution of receptors and how they are able to distinguish between similar neurotransmitters such as dopamine and adrenaline. The project will also involve computer-aided design of ligands with specific pharmacological profiles.

The project will be carried out in close collaboration with experimental and theoretical research groups at Uppsala university, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and Karolinska Institutet. Our research project is also described on the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation’s website: https://kaw.wallenberg.org/en/research/signal-pathways-better-therapeutics.

Requirements: The applicant must hold a PhD degree in computational biology/chemistry or within another subject which the employer considers to be equivalent. Strong abilities in computational biology/chemistry with extensive experience in molecular dynamics simulations of proteins are required. Excellent written and oral knowledge of English is required as the work takes place in an international environment.

Mass spectroscopy Bioanalysis scientist

 

The Steyaert lab pioneered the use of nanobodies for chaperone-assisted X-ray crystallography aiming at the highest hanging fruits of structural biology including membrane proteins, amyloidogenic proteins, and now also (transient) multiprotein complexes. The elucidation of the first GPCR structures in the agonist-bound active state demonstrated the power of Nanobodies to stabilize G protein coupled receptor conformational states including transmembrane signalling complexes. Recent work focusses on exploiting the conformational complexity of therapeutic targets for Nanobody-enabled drug discovery and on the applications of nanobodies in single particle cryo-EM. Three successful biotech spin-offs valorize the unique family of single domain antibodies (nanobodies) derived from camelids: AblynxAgrosafve, and ConFo Therapeutics.

For its Proteome-scale Nanobody discovery program, the Steyaert lab is seeking an innovative and critical scientist with expertise in mass spectroscopy to join our Nanobody platform development team. The successful individual is expected to be highly collaborative and to be excited to take on new challenges. The position is a hands-on role with a significant degree of autonomy.

The successful candidate will:
• Introduce and broadly apply mass spectrometry to the qualitative and quantitative analysis of antibody-protein and protein-protein interactions.
• Develop and implement (semi)automated high-throughput methods for proteome-wide protein-antibody interactions
• Introduce SILAC-based methods to identify antibodies in complex samples

Qualifications

• Proven record of Mass spectrometry (MS) instrumentation operation and troubleshooting
• Hands-on experience with qualitative and quantitative MS analysis and biological sample preparation
• MS-based proteomic data analysis using multiple software tools
• Proficiency in common analytical methodologies such as HPLC, CE and ELISA
• Experience with automatization and in-house software tool development is a plus
• Demonstrated ability to plan and execute research experiments.

We offer

• Full-time position with an open-ended contract
• Competitive salary and benefits
• A central position and exciting job in a dynamic, innovative and motivated team of scientists in an international research environment
• Room to learn and grow in this position

How to apply?

Motivated candidates are asked to apply online.

The increasing variety of mutant mice as potential models of disease mechanisms makes phenotypic analysis central for adequately describing the changes caused by genetic manipulation. Pathology is a major and integral part of the phenotyping process. The FENO service supports researchers with histopathology expertise and has its own histological laboratory. Advanced staining methods and state-of-the-art microscopes and imaging equipment including slide scanners and spectral fluorescent microscope are available on-site.

Position as Veterinary Pathologist
The KI core facility for morphologic phenotype analysis (FENO) is recruiting a veterinary anatomic pathologist (ECVP/ACVP board certified or –eligible/enrolled in a residency program) with experience and expertise in mouse pathology. The position is placed at the department of Laboratory Medicine, at the South Campus of KI.
