Postdoc in DNA Damage Response and Innate Immunity: Sweden

The Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS), is looking for a Postdoc with a training in signal transduction to join Gekara lab.

Project description 

We are interested in understanding the mechanisms that govern the regulation of the DNA damage response and Innate immune signaling pathways and how the breakdown of such regulation influences the outcome of infections, inflammatory diseases and genome instability – associated disorders (Panda S, Nilsson JA, Gekara NO. Immunity. 2015 Oct 20;43(4):647-59; Härtlova A, et al., Immunity. 2015 Feb 17;42(2):332-43 and Erttmann SF, et al., Immunity. 2016 Jul 19;45(1):106-18). We have identified new regulatory molecules involved in the regulation of the DNA damage response and the immune system. The goal of this project is to investigate their role and mechanisms in health and disease.


You have a Ph.D. exam cell/molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology or related fields at the time of recruitment. You are proficient in spoken and written English and have good communication skills.

Desirable qualifications

Interest in DNA damage signaling and/or immunology is a merit. Expertise in cell signaling, proficiency in cell culture, transfections, lentiviral /retroviral approaches for gene manipulation, immunoprecipitations, western blotting, ELISA, RT-qPCR and other cell/molecular biology techniques is required.
