Postdoc in Quantitative Microbiology or Biophysics

We are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher with an interest in quantitative microbiology and the biophysical aspects of life. You will use and develop new single molecule/single-cell tools that make it possible to connect changes in genomic DNA sequence to changes in intracellular kinetics for thousands of different bacterial strains in parallel. You will construct and phenotype large genetic libraries with respect to complex dynamic intercellular processes. The project aims at understanding the principles for sequence specific target localization in the intracellular environment.

We offer a stimulating interdisciplinary research environment and you will work in close collaboration with microbiologists, microfluidics engineers, biophysicists, computer scientists, optical engineers, biochemists and molecular biologists. A strong track record from experimental projects, a passion for science and good interpersonal skills are prerequisites for the position. The ideal candidate should also be skilled in the fields of microbiology, experimental biophysics and programming.

Qualifications required:

  • PhD* in relevant subject area, e.g. biophysics or molecular microbiology.
  • Self-motivated personality with interest in fundamental science or methods development.
  • Excellent team working skills.
  • Documented experience of solving scientific problems.
  • Excellent communication skills in English.

Qualification desired:

  • Good programming skills.
  • Good knowledge in microbiology.
  • Experience with biophysical methods development.
  • Experience with bacterial strain construction.

Application should include:

  • CV including a list of publications.
  • Cover letter (maximum 1 page).
  • Names, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers for three reference persons.
  • You are welcome to submit your application no later than August 31st, 2018. Use the link below to access the application form.
