Qualification Details

We are looking for two highly motivateded persons with a PhD exam in biology with specialization in molecular evolution, bioinformatics or related subject areas that the employer considers equivalent. The successful candidates should have strong collaborative skills but also be able to work independently. High requirements on research quality and ethics, including quality and reproducibility of data and analyses, are central for all work in the group.

The PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application deadline. The three year period can be extended due to circumstances such as sick leave, parental leave, duties in labour unions, etc.

Additional qualifications: Prior experience of bioinformatic studies of microbial genomes is regarded as a merit.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The project includes large-scale bioinformatic analyses of genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data from bacteria. The development and implementation of bioinformatic tools may also be included in the position.

About the Project

The research in Siv Andersson´s group aims to provide a deeper understanding of the forces and mechanisms that drive the evolution of bacterial genomes. The research is focused on evolutionary studies of symbiont genomes and the origin of cellular complexity. The goal of this project is to study the population genomics and the role that the mobile gene pool of Lactobacillus species plays for the defence of pathogenic bacteria in honeybee colonies. Bioinformatic studies of Planctomycetes which are bacteria but contain elaborate intracellular membranes will also be performed to study the role that the importance of gene duplication for the transition from simple to more complex cell structures.
